I will never recommend enough to think about keeping a photographic souvenir of this so ephemeral moment . It is not in our habits to imagine using an professional photographer to document such intimate moments. You may even think that I am a little crazy to imagine such a situation! Yet, once the time has passed, the photos that remain are priceless and will take value over time. So thank you to Loïc and Emilia for letting me immortalize such an important part of your life: the arrival of Nya in their family. This report has been carried out in several stages since the pregnancy until the first month of life, here is an excerpt from this beautiful story.
The first session took place just over a month before the birth during a walk in the forest. The time of this month of December 2017 was fresh and the late winter light was just beautiful. No time to take a lot of clichés, only one film was enough for this very joyful moment!
Nya was born on January 13, 2018 and her arrival was expected! Indeed, she arrives in an already lively universe because it is the last one of a family that already has 3 children! Nya chose the end of the morning to be born without a hitch. The second photographic session was carried out the next day, in the room, without staging in the manner of a close and happy friend of this event.
Finally, a month later, we ended up celebrating the event and capturing the first moments of life. Once again, the choice of natural photos was privileged. No heavy installations, no artificial light or superfluous accessories, just the sweetness and simplicity of a baby’s life.
This series does not stop there because the family life of Loïc and Emilia continues! After having had the joy to immortalize the arrival of their dog Norris, I hope I can accompany them for all their lives, immortalize the birthdays to come and who knows if they will not marry one day … Family photographer, it is not to be present once, it is to be present all life, that is my philosophy.
