The last weeks of pregnancy is the end of your life as you know it. It is exciting and scary. You really cannot wait to meet your baby, but you should also not forget to value every moment of it and take time to rest well and to bond with your family.
Your love to your partner will never be the same, your connection to your other children will never be the same. It will became MORE, but different.
You want to remember this time in your life before a new little one joins it.
And you want to have it captured as naturally and emotionally as possible.
I take maternity pictures on different locations.
But the location you choose should be a part of your story or of your character and show who you are.
I wanted to make a little hit parade of places where you could have the most lovely and relaxed maternity session.
You do not have to go anywhere, you can be cosy and relaxed in your favourite armchair or laying in bed.
You will also feel much more comfortable at home because I will be your guest and not vice versa.
Your home is also the place most of your child's memories will be connected with. And many of the pictures of your children will take place here as well!
AT YOUR NOSTALGIC PLACE
If there is a special romantic-nostalgic place in the city or around which means a lot to you – we can go there. This will make a beautiful outline for the session and you will also feel relaxed in a place you really like. It can be any place – even a dark Irish Pub!
AT THE PARK / IN THE CITY
Some mothers-to-be are to active to sit at home, but also do not have any nostalgic places nearby. In Geneva I often take photographs of families that just moved in and they do not manage to create a connection with the city yet. In this case I usually offer two options: to have a session in the park or in a spectacular place in the city. These locations are not so personal, but they can highlight your character – whether you prefer nature of city life dynamic.
I have three kids and was a lady with a huge belly for three times.
All my favourite maternity pictures were taken at home. But also a few in a very special places for me and my husband.
