About me..

Hello, Bonjour!

Welcome to my website! So, here's a little bit about myself..

My name is Emma van Dort, I'm originally British, but a seasoned expat, having lived in the French speaking part of Switzerland for almost 15 years. Married to a Dutchman with 2 young girls, so a multilingual family, which was always a dream of mine. I picked up my 1st digital camera on my travels through India in my late 20's and that is where my obsession for photography began. My own pregnancies & 2 beautiful babies later inspired my desire to learn more about capturing the beauty of human life; maternity, newborns & growing families. Becoming a mother completely changed my perspective & the world through my lens became their little world..

I love to capture REAL emotions, candid smiles, and having FUN is the most important thing to ensure everyone is relaxed! My preferred style is timeless, pure & natural..if that speaks to you then let's work together!

(The Swiss association of Professional newborn photographers)

Since 2021, I became a member of ASPPNN, which aims to guarantee the physical and emotional safety of infants during their first photo shoot.

Having also recently completed a newborn posing workshop in studio, I am now IN LOVE with capturing these beautiful brand new human beings in their 1st weeks.

I see the beauty in simplicity, no trendy props & big accessories, I prefer natural posing, listening to the baby's needs & creating a timeless memory for the family to treasure for generations!
