What we offer

Newborn Photography

Our in-home newborn photography captures the natural beauty and essence of a newborn in a comfortable and familiar environment. We love the relaxed and intimate setting that we get when we come into family’s home. This way we get those natural and authentic photos! Additionally, in-home sessions often provide a greater opportunity to incorporate the family’s personal style and home decor into the photographs. No pressure though :-)

Family Photography

Lifestyle family photography captures candid, natural moments between family members in their everyday lives. We focuses on the connections and relationships among family members, and keep posing to a minimum. This results in timeless, cherished images that truly reflect the family’s unique personalities and dynamics. So please don’t worry about perfection. The true beauty lies in all the REAL moments we’ll capture.

Maternity Photography

Maternity photography celebrates the beauty and wonder of pregnancy. We love capturing the excitement and anticipation of welcoming a new life into the world. Maternity sessions can take place indoor or outdoor, or a mix of both! Also, this can either be just mommy, or all family members together! Even the furry ones. :-)

Photographing Twins

Photographing twins can be tricky, but it doesn’t have to be! If everyone stays relaxed, a twin session can be a beautiful and rewarding experience for both the photographer and the parents. We love showing the unique bond and connection between the siblings, as well as their individual personalities and characteristics. Also, somehow there is always a special kind of energy during twin shoots! Show me more twins!

Documentary Style

So you don’t like posing? Then this might just be the session for you. We love to capture your daily routine, from family lunch, to bath time, cuddle time, play in the park – without any posing at all. We aim to tell a story and provide a glimpse into the unique dynamics in your family’s daily life. We love to feature candid shots of family members engaged in routine activities, as well as important milestones and events. Our goal is to capture the authenticity and essence of your family, kind of like creating a visual record of your lives for future generations. Click here to see more of this docu-session.


We come to your home! This way, our newborn and family sessions offer a unique and intimate glimpse your life. We want to capture natural interactions, and candid moments that make each family special. Your home provides the secure haven of your children, and, in a sense provides the canvas on which you create your family’s story. With the familiar surroundings of home as the backdrop, these photos showcase the love, warmth, and joy with the personal touch of YOU.

“Franzi, these photos are unreal!! We are so so so so so so happy with them. You got everything we were hoping for. I love how you were able to capture Cora’s personality in these pics. No one has ever been able to do that. You are so talented and so great with the kids! We can’t wait to have you photograph our family again in the future 🙂 Thank you, thank you!”

I had many really really good experiences with Deer Baby Photography. We have had several family photo shoots with Franzi and our expectations were exceeded. We have booked our maternity sessions, newborn session and several family sessions with them.  They have the perfect eye and  are always full  ideas on how to keep the little ones ‘on track’.  The photos are excellent and I love that all the digital files are included. They also offer lovely photo books and I still get super emotional when looking at them. The whole family will cherish these memories forever. I recommended them to many friends and everyone was very satisfied. Thank you again Deer Baby for all these great memories.

“We had a lovely experience with Anjola. The photos are beautiful and the customer service and scheduling were seamless. We will treasure these photos!”

“Cary has been our newborn photographer twice now (once for each of our kids) and we couldn’t be happier. Excellent pictures, and Cary is a complete professional.”
