Maternity Shooting

Maternity Shooting

There is just something so powerful about a pregnant woman. Every time I photograph a maternity session, I feel humble that you have chosen me to capture that special time. I am literally capturing a moment in time and producing a form of art from it. And that’s what I love.

Being pregnant is one of the most beautiful moments in life. Let me work with you and capture the beauty of your baby belly. Let me show you the goddess that you are. Let me capture that love you created and is now in front of my lense. The experience that the customer has is the most important thing for me. Pregnancy is not always fun, it is not always glamorous. So this is my chance to make you, my customer, shine and make you feel like a queen.

The best time for a maternity session is between the 28th and 34th week of your pregnancy. During this time your pregnancy is clearly visible but the most important part is that you feel comfortable. In case you prefer any other dates, I am of course happy to work with you.

It’s simple: Don’t match. Coordinate. The result should be a family outfit everyone feels comfortable in and if you decide that you want to go for an elegant look, make sure all the members of your family are equally dressed. And remember, being barefoot whenever possible adds a nice „natural“ touch.

Underwear is also an important factor for maternity photos. Skin colored thongs and bras work best and if you feel comfortable enough, you can also wear nipple covers (I also keep a stash handy for my clients, if you like).

If you book your maternity and newborn sessions together, you’ll get a 50€ discount on your newborn session.

Get yourself pampered (maybe the perfect excuse you’ve been waiting for?). Fix your hair nicely, maybe some light curls (very appealing for a mommy-to-be). Do your makeup. If you don’t know how to do your makeup, I am more than happy to help. Remember: Getting all dolled up helps with self confidence and to feel comfortable in front of the camera.

Yes! I want to capture your FAMILY happiness.

One exception: Mini Maternity Sessions are only for the mom-to-be. It‘s supposed to be quick and that is better accomplished if you come alone.

Yes. An appointment reservation fee of 50€ is due in advance and will be deducted from the package price later.

This is entirely up to you. You can visit my studio or we can meet in your favourite park or place in and around Vienna.

My studio is located at Schlöglgasse 11/9, 1120 Vienna – easily accessible by public transport. The S-Bahn and Tram 62 stop conveniently close to my studio.

The photo sessions are bookable from Tuesday to Saturday at different times (depending on weather and lighting conditions for outdoor sessions).
There is ample street parking available but please note that you will require a parking ticket (except for the weekend).
Pictures from your session are first uploaded to a private, password protected online gallery. You will get a link where you can select the photos you like best. I will then edit and deliver them within 4 weeks (digitals). After that, you will receive your printed photos by regular mail.
The short answer is no. The long answer is that I take pride in my work and that you wouldn’t expect an uncooked meal in a restaurant, or an unstudied piece of music at a concert. I consider myself an artist and only hand over what I consider finished. Your masterpiece sort of speaks.
My pictures are my business cards, and I do hope they speak for themselves. I am always grateful when I can use pictures of a photo shoot for my purposes. I want to show other customers what I can do for them and the only way to do that is through your pictures. Please help me spread the word of my work, it would help me tremendously. Should you not feel comfortable with that I am more than happy to only share the images with you. BUT if you don’t want that, I’ll of course also accept it.
