The first photographs of your baby are always a terrific emotional step of your beautiful family story: newly parents or expert ones.

At the heart of the photo session, there is the utmost care to unveil the essence of bonding and joy of nurturing and connecting: gentle movements, sweet gestures in a magical atmosphere.  

The baby mood and his willingness to sleep will lead the photographic session. Within the first 15 days of life, newborns should be generally sleepy and calm, and it is easier to get those stylish images with props we are now more and more used to seeing. After two weeks, the baby tends to move and interact during the session, allowing for candid images without a lot of setting up. So, we are ready to capture all the vivid expressions, spontaneous interactions, intense gazes enriching the photographs with sweet moments of family life and its new dynamic, especially when there are older siblings.

Enjoy a family outdoor session

Happy children

You might consider enjoying a funny outdoor photographic experience. Sometimes the constraints of a house or a studio can limit the dynamism of a family or a group. A park, a fairground, an evocative landmark can stimulate the vivacity and playfulness that will give an extra sparkle to the children, the parents, and the pets.

"Paola has taken family photos for us annually since our newborn pictures years ago...  She has photographed in our London home, Hyde Park and in the New Forest, with the National Park as a backdrop. She manages to capture our children’s personality, our family dynamics and has a calm professionalism that helps the children stay settled and enjoy the experience. Her use of colour and light creates a real warmth in her photos. She has a real gift to use the lens to “see” people that  is far and above the average family photographer".
