Yes! I currently offer sessions on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Studio and in-home sessions are in the morning. Outdoor sessions are typically 1-2h before sunset (early morning sessions are also available in the hot months).
Maternity sessions typically take place between 28 and 34 weeks of pregnancy. But it depends on your own unique preference. I recommend that you contact me as soon as possible so that I can reserve a date for you. You can read more about it in this blog post.
It depends on the type of images you want. If you love those sleepy natural, lifestyle newborn images, then I recommend having your session on day 5-10. For this option, we reserve a tentative date base on your due date. Then we adjust once your baby is born. If you prefer images showing your baby interacting with family members, then I recommend having your session between 4-8 weeks. You can read more about newborn sessions in this blog post.
My approach to newborn photography is organic and baby-led. This means that I naturally "pose" a newborn baby by simply placing him or her on the bed in a very natural position. And I only offer simple, neutral-colored swaddle blankets (no other props). Most of the images from a newborn session are about you connecting with your baby as a parent and as a family. Because I believe that your baby is perfect as he or she is. And that newborn photography is about connection and love. You can read more about my approach in this blog post.
You can opt for sessions in the studio (located in Toulouse), your home, or outdoors. For outdoor sessions, you can choose from a curated list of locations that are accessible, child-friendly, and have beautiful light, and backgrounds. Each type of location (studio, in-home or outdoor) has its own benefit. I can help you choose if you're unsure which option works best for your family. Studio and outdoor sessions typically last 45-60 min (maternity & family) or up to 90 min (newborn). In-home sessions last for about 2-3h.
All over Europe and UK! I LOVE to travel! So, if you love my photography style, don't hesitate to contact me for more information if your city is not listed here. But in general, I typically photograph in Toulouse, Paris, Marseille, Basel, Zurich, and London. You can check my travel dates for 2023 here.
Yes, absolutely! Clients have exclusive access to a detailed written styling guide and a video consultation to help you coordinate outfits for your family through a stress-free process. Moms also have exclusive access to borrowing a dress from my studio wardrobe.
Please rest assured that your child will love the experience because my approach is very relaxing and laid back. During your photoshoot, I’ll follow a child-led approach. I’ll observe your children’s interests and mood, and let that be my guide - not a shot list. As the session progresses, I'll take a step back more and more, and let you enjoy your family with minimum (or no) interference. For outdoor sessions, I bring a bag of surprise treasures that will keep your little one’s entertained and having a lot of fun!
I will be honest - my sessions are not for everyone. They are ideal for families who value connection over perfection. My work might not be a good fit if: you want traditional, posed, everyone-smiling-looking-into-the-camera type of photos. And you feel uncomfortable letting go of expectations or showing those true, raw emotions. My sessions are up close and personal
Please don't worry if your home is dark as I can work in different lighting situations and achieve the luminous look you see in my portfolio. However, it is ideal that your home has neutral, light tones on the walls and decor. If that is not the case, you can opt for a studio or outdoor session. Or, you can dress your whole family in neutral tones to balance the environmental colors. If this is a concern, just let me know when you inquire and we will find the best option for you.
All of my sessions include a mix of natural poses and documentary/unposed moments. Guided portraits typically to last 20-30 min, or for as long as children (and dad!) are OK with it. Then, the remaining of the session tends to be more documentary/unposed for a very relaxing and authentic experience. Outdoor and studio sessions last 45-60 min and include a wider variety of portraits. In-home sessions typically last 2-3 hours and tend to be mostly focused on everyday moments with portraits of the whole family together.
It is pretty common that dads are not thrilled with the idea of awkwardly posing and smiling for the camera. If that's the case for the dad in your family - I have great news! My approach is pretty easy-going. I combine a mix of natural posing with the documentary approach throughout sessions. My only 'expectation' is for your family to play, have fun, look at each other, and cuddle in a way that feels natural. There is no stiff posing or cheesy smiles. I promise! If you need to convince dad, this blog post will help you.
