Below you will find answers to the most common questions about portraits during pregnancy, babies and for your family. If you still have doubts or want to talk more about them, do not hesitate to contact me!
From the third month onwards, every moment is good for making photos, especially if you want to document all the growth and evolution of the belly. In any case, between the seventh and ninth months the best conditions are concentrated: the belly is noticeable while the future mother is not yet in the physically most tiring period.
Pregnancy photos can be taken in my studio, at your home or outdoors. The resulting photographs are very different from each other, so according to your wishes, the season and the weather we will decide together the most suitable location.
On average, the actual shooting session lasts a couple of hours, to which should be added, depending on the case, the time needed to prepare and/or set up.
Depending on the location and the situation I will point out some garments that could be perfect to make the best shots.
The undressing of body parts, in these cases, certainly improves the beauty of the resulting photographs. The “how much” however in by your choice, according to your pleasure or discretion. I can assure you, however, that it is not in my interest to make vulgar or dubious images.
The portrait, in my view, is not only an aesthetic representation of how we are made physically, but also of the social and emotional relationships that involve us.
Try to always bring your partner, even if he is shy and reticent he can help you at least to feel serene and relaxed. If we can get him involved for a few shots, I’m sure he’ll appreciate the result.
Depending on the type of photographs we will take, it is also possible to involve little brothers and sisters and let them interact with you and your baby bump.
The photographs of newborns are among the most particular that can be made, this also because the period in which it is possible to do so inevitably ends in 10-15 days from the moment of birth.
It is a very delicate circumstance for the mother and family who live a moment, even traumatic, in which there is the need to re-establish new balances. At the same time, however, it is the period in which the baby still has the embryonic attitude in which he often sleeps and in a deep way.
To make this type of photos I need to set up a special set, both for the images we will make and for the wellness of the baby.
For this reason the sets I set up are preferably made in my studio or, if you wish, at your home.
To realize this type of session I need a half day: it is normal to take three or four hours as you will have many breaks. It is necessary to take it easy and follow the times of the newborn.
First of all, I need to be informed some time in advance about the expected date of delivery, so that I can organize myself with my own agenda. Then inform me as soon as your baby is born in order to set a suitable date.
Kids and families
Also in this case the where is very subjective, depending on your tastes, the time of the year and weather outside. It is closely related to the type of photos that will come out.
Apart from the case in which the subject of the photos are very small children, let's say six months, in which it is good to stay at home or in the studio to ensure still a very protected situation, we can meet at your home, in my studio or around for a walk.
There are two types of session, short and long, that are approximately a couple of hours or a half day respectively. In particular, in the long session, I will have more opportunity to be with you and to make a reportage of your daily routine.
Usually, except in special cases, I ask to wear simple clothes, preferably in plain colour. For children it is good to consider to have a spare change in case they get dirty.
In all three cases hundreds of images will be taken. I will select the best for you and you can choose the ones you like to make wonderful prints.
