When should my newborn be photographed
For posed studio photography, I recommend between 5-15 days old. For Lifestyle photoshoots, this rule is more relaxed, ideally for newborns at home, I'd recommend anytime from your arrival at home till the first 2 months.
When is the bet time for a maternity photoshoot
These are best taken between 28 and 36 weeks of gestation
Please adhere to goverment guidelines at the moment of the photoshoot. At no point, please come to the studio if you or anyone of your family is ill. This includes comon viruses, not just covid! If you have a fever or feeling unwell, pleae let me know and we'll reschedule. Due to the nature of my job, I strive to keep myself healthy, so I can continue my job of photographing newborn babies and also high risk pregnancies.
Where are you based?
I'm based in Gumpoldskirchen, District of Mödling. I'm only 30min away from Vienna city centre by car.
What if my baby cries the whole session?
Well, it happens sometimes, but you must not worry! This is why I allow 2-3 hours on a session so you can be comfortable, your baby can be feed and settled. If your baby does not settle during the entire session, we will plan another session one or two days after at no cost.
When can we see our photos?
Each image is hand selected and edited to tell your story. This process takes typically takes about 3-4 weeks for weddings and 2 -3 weeks for portraits or newborn sessions. Once completed, we will set up your premier appointment to celebrate, discuss your album and do any ordering. After your premier, images are posted online to share with family and friends for one year.
I want to purchase more photos, how much do they cost?
With the exception of events, a single digital photo costs 20€. You also have the option to purchase the entire gallery for 150€
Do you provide the cake for the Smash Cake sessions
No, however I can recommend a very talented Baker located in Vienna.
Do I have to order prints through you?
No, but by ordering prints through me, you will get a beautiful and professional product will last many years to come that you wont find in the high street. I can guarantee you the best professional prints that will last many years to come, so one day you can enjoy the memories you made together with your grand children.
