Outdoor pregnancy photoshoots in Basel and Baselland.

In my experience photographing moms-to-be, I've realized something important: the journey of pregnancy isn't just about waiting for your baby. It's also about celebrating your inner beauty and strength every step of the way. This powerful journey begins long before your little one arrives. It is during this precious time that the extraordinary bond of motherhood is formed, one that will last a lifetime.


My aim is to celebrate the journey you're on as a woman, highlighting your beauty, strength, and inner power. In my photographs, I strive to reveal the inherent beauty within every woman, allowing them to see themselves as the heroines of their own romantic novels. And I found that there will be no better surroundings for that than Mother Nature herself. With a poetic style reminiscent of a bygone era—think flowing gowns, picturesque cornfields, blooming plantages of trees, and the dreamy atmosphere of a wood—you will be carried away to a world of timeless beauty and grace.


The moms you see in my portfolio aren't professional models—they're everyday women like you and me. They've trusted me to tell their stories through photos, creating portraits that reflect their journey of love, strength, and beauty.


Your moment deserves to be honored and celebrated. When your baby arrives, they'll undoubtedly be the center of your world, but for now, it's YOUR time to shine.

Despite initial worries, the experience felt like a delightful walk, and Ana's selection of pregnancy gowns added an elegant touch. The photos are stunning; I find myself wanting to look at them more and more. Highly recommended!"

Plan your pregnancy session

After booking your date, we'll move on to planning. You'll receive a digital catalog of available maternity gowns for you to see and choose from. It makes selecting the perfect look for your shoot simple. I will provide you with some tips on coordinating your partner's outfits, ensuring that both of you appear harmonious in the pictures.


Enjoy your laid-back photoshoot

The outdoor sessions will unfold in several locations near Basel that I am familiar with, and I'm open to your suggestions for other spots. Maternity sessions are usually scheduled during the golden hour, approximately 2-3 hours before sunset, providing a magical backdrop for your photos. If you'd like assistance with makeup, I can connect you with my wonderful colleague, Nicole, a skilled makeup artist.

Once we are on location, we'll proceed with the shoot. Throughout the session, I'll offer guidance and pose assistance for dreamy results, ensuring a pleasant, stress-free experience.


Get your images

Within 2-3 weeks, I will contact you to schedule your selection appointment via Zoom, where I'll share my screen with you. Together, we will go through your gallery, and you can choose your favorite images. If needed, I'll gladly guide you in making your selection

Once the pictures are chosen, I will proceed to design and order your prints. When the products arrive, I will carefully inspect them before personally delivering them to your doorstep.

If we are a good match?
I am the first to say that I may not be the right photographer for everyone.

I create pictures for proud parents who would love to celebrate the new life by creating outstanding, premium quality portraits of themselves and their beautiful babies. If this sounds like your cup of tea, don't hesitate to reach out!
But hey, I might not be your best match if:

1.Your primary consideration is price and quantity.
My focus is completely on the quality of the pictures and the overall experience. To ensure I can give my absolute best, I only take on a limited number of sessions each month. Prices for a full maternity session start at CHF 890.-
2.You are only seeking a couple of pictures for announcement cards.
I want to be transparent with you – achieving perfect results for this type of photoshoot requires time and dedication. If you aren't fully invested in the experience and only need a few pictures for announcement cards, you might be interested in my mini packages.

3. I am the closest photographer to your location, but you prefer the style of that photographer from America, feel that my outfits and dresses don't match your personality, or aren't thrilled about the idea of posing your baby in a bucket.

As much as I would love to accommodate your preferences, I am unable to create pictures in a style other than what is showcased on my website. However, if you are interested in other styles like natural, lifestyle, or documentary, I'm more than happy to recommend some talented colleagues who specialize in those styles. Feel free to get in touch and ask for recommendations. 
When it is the best time for a pregnancy photoshoot?
I recommend booking your maternity session between 28-32 weeks. During this period, your baby bump is beautifully round, and you are still comfortably away from your due date. It's an ideal time to capture stunning maternity portraits before feeling too heavy, tired, or overwhelmed with other preparations.
I don't typically schedule pregnancy photoshoots after the 33-week mark. From my experience, as you approach this stage, physical changes become more noticeable. Many expectant mothers start to feel heavier, more tired, and may experience swelling. The overall experience can become tiresome rather than pleasant and joyful.
When should I schedule my maternity photosession?
I kindly recommend booking your session at least a month in advance to secure your spot and avoid any potential disappointment.
How much does it cost?

Can I have photos with my partner and elder kids during the maternity session?
Yes, absolutely. You can and should involve your partner and elder kids in your maternity session. It's likely the last set of photographs you'll have together before your family undergoes a significant change. So including your partner and kids in your maternity session is always encouraged.

However, please keep in mind that the main focus of the session will still be on the expecting mom. If you prefer to have the majority of the pictures with your family, it might be more suitable to hire a family photographer.
What if it rains?
If we plan our shoot in the woods and it's just a light drizzle rather than a downpour, we can still proceed. Wet settings often add a dramatic and expressive touch to photos.
However, to ensure everything goes smoothly, I typically schedule a backup date (coordinated with the makeup artist as well) in case of bad weather forecasted on the original shoot day.
Do you provide gowns for the maternity session or should I bring my own dress?
I have a collection of beautiful gowns available for you to choose from in my studio. All the dresses featured on my website are part of my collection and can be rented for your photoshoot.

My maternity gowns are designed to fit all standard sizes and come in a variety of cuts and colors. Additionally, I have silk and chiffon fabrics that we can creatively incorporate into your session.

I have a specific pregnancy dress in mind that I can't find in your catalog.

If you let me know which dress you're referring to and if it aligns with my photography style, I may consider adding it to my client wardrobe. As a photographer, I have connections with numerous vendors, and there's a good chance I'll be able to identify the designer of that particular maternity gown.

However, it's important to note that I prioritize working with authentic products and supporting women entrepreneurs like myself. Therefore, I do not work with knockoffs from platforms like Amazon or Ali Express.
Can you come to my city/town to do a photoshoot?
I only offer outdoor shoots in the Basel area. Unfortunately, I am unable to travel to another city/town.

Do you want to look divine in your pictures? Get in touch with me, and together we'll make your vision come true.
