Of course, we heat up our studio and especially the room of the shooting for our little guest, so that your newborn does not freeze under any circumstances.

Since babies sleep most of the time up until day 14, this is the best time for newborn photography. In these first days of life, our photographers have the opportunity to stage your little miracle in peace and quiet and to photograph it professionally. Of course you can have your little darling photographed alone, with your sibling or with the whole family.

Answers to the most important questions about newborn photography in our photo studios

What is a newborn photo shoot?

Newborn photography is a specialized type of photography that focuses on capturing a baby's first few days and weeks. It is a very sensitive and patient work, where the well-being of the baby is always paramount.

"Babies are my inspiration for everything they stand for, they change lives," said world-renowned newborn photographer Anne Geddes. And we can only agree with the mother of all newborn photography. For some time now, the "Newborn Photography" trend has also found its way from the USA to us in Munich. And we can't get enough of our work with the little ones.

What is the difference between newborn photography and baby photography?

Should I choose newborn photography or baby photography? The difference between newborn photos and baby photos, which are taken by extra baby photographers, is first of all in the time of the shooting. A newborn shoot takes place in the first 14 days. During this time, the little mice usually sleep through the entire shoot, can be placed in cute positions and look deeply relaxed in the pictures. It is different with babies, because from about 6 months the children become more mobile and you can photograph them in action. At a baby shoot the child can hold its head by itself, is active and looks awake into the camera. Depending on their age, the little ones can already lean on their arms, sit or stand. We suggest poses and accessories that match your level of development and press the trigger at the right moment. The result is vivid images of your baby.
We think you shouldn't have to choose between newborn photography and baby photography, so we've got you covered Baby Pass designed the addition also a  Baby bump shoot contains. With the beautiful pictures you have a reminder of all the valuable and a very special time. 

Can I also give the newborn photo shoot as a gift?

Yes! The photo shoot for newborns, the baby passport or the photogenic card are excellent gifts. Whether as a voucher from the grandparents for the birth or as a surprise for the baby shower, the new parents will definitely be happy. You can buy vouchers for individual photo shoots directly in our Shop order. If you would like to give our baby pass or photogenic card as a gift, it is best to contact us directly

Can the newborn photo shoot also take place at home?

If you feel more comfortable at home than in our photo studio, we will be happy to come to your familiar surroundings for the photo shoot. We simply bring professional equipment with lighting with us. At your home, we photograph beautiful baby photos, children's photos or family photos, without any stress or hectic for you and your offspring. More information about photo shoots at home.

What do I have to consider when preparing for a newborn photo shoot?

  • Pay attention to your newborn's "habits". We will find a suitable date.
  • It is best to try to be in our photo studio on time so that you have plenty of time to breastfeed and change your baby's nappy again. 
  • Newborns should be full and freshly swaddled at the time of the shoot so they are relaxed and content.
  • Blankets, rompers, hats or other accessories should be colour-coordinated. If you want to be in the photo yourself, you should also match the color of your clothes.
  • The most important thing: relax with us! With your familiar closeness and voice, flashing lights and the "new" situation for a newborn quickly become nothing spectacular.
  • If you come to our photo studios in the Westend for the newborn shoot, we will be happy to discuss with you in advance what props you can bring and what we have there.
You can find all the information on how to prepare perfectly for your newborn photo shoot in our Procedure and checklist.

Can the parents and siblings also be in the photos?

Absolutely! You or your siblings are welcome to be in the newborn photos. Let's discuss your wishes together.
