In November 2017, my dream came true as I opened the new Bear & Dragon Studio. Located in the heart of the European Quarter, this cozy space has everything you need to feel at home and have fun. Set on the third floor of a classic Brussels Maison de Maitre, the light floods in from large windows and period details bring a special ambiance. It is a quiet space and sometimes feel like a world apart.
You enter into a lounge which is an open space to relax, lay out your things and prepare for your session. For newborn sessions, this space is especially useful for taking care of baby, entertaining older siblings and just having a quiet place to be.
At home, I believe some of our sweetest moment take place in bed where we play, wrestle and cuddle our little ones. Near the brightest window of the studio, overlooking gardens and trees, we have a simple but elegant bedroom set. I always start here with the little ones. Jumping on the bed is a great ice breaker!
The third room is a classic photography studio room with a range of back drops, props and lighting. A typical session takes us to both the bed and studio sets so you have a broad range of images to choose your favorites from.
Many people ask what to bring to your session but really everything is here! For maternity, a small collection of classic and elegant dresses. For newborns, an abundance of wraps, handmade hats, outfits and diaper covers, nests and woven baskets. And of course for kids beautifully made toys, props, chairs, and blocks. Just bring yourselves. :)
