Expecting parents are known to take part in a ritual before giving birth called babymoon. It is the time when father- and mother-to-be go on a vacation before a new addition to the family comes along. For some, it is the last time the couple can enjoy a holiday with each other only. Who knows until how long they will get the chance to get away from the kids?
Babymoon is also a great chance to plan a destination for a maternity photo session, where parents-to-be can make lasting memories by hiring a photographer to capture your moments. If Europe is on your list for babymoon, here are some great choices:
If you haven’t watched “The Fault in Our Stars”, you should. The movie is set in the capital city of the Netherlands and you will fall in love with the place. Amsterdam has more than 100 kilometers of canal and walking along the river is a must. You will see flower-decorated bridges and Dutch-style buildings lining up the sidewalk. There are waterfront cafés and shops to visit. With the warm colours of the buildings, the wide walkways, the shady trees, this city has a relaxed atmosphere perfect for a mommy-to-be, great for the background to your maternity photos.
Crossing over to the boot-shaped country, you will find Amalfi on Italy’s southwest coast. This pretty and petite town is next to the sea, which means sun-filled piazzas and beaches! You can walk from end to end in about 20 minutes, perfect for a lazy stroll in the afternoon while munching on a delicious gelato. Enjoy authentic Italian pasta in the restaurants, visit historical buildings, or just enjoy the view! Clean air and panorama perfect for maternity photos, good for the baby and the mommy.
If you love the arts and classical Europe, then Vienna is the place to go. Immersed in history and culture, this Austrian city will tickle your curiosity everywhere you turn. For mothers craving for good food, try Wiener Schnitzel, Tafelspitz (prime boiled beef), and other Austrian cuisines along with some wine (only for the dad-to-be though!). Who knows, maybe the birthplace of Mozart, Beethoven, and Strauss will inspire your baby.
This city in England has a lot to offer from history and culture to fine food and good times. Travel back in time as you walk around the streets of London to a time of Kings and Queens. You might even spot a royal somewhere if you’re lucky! Stroll along the alleys and visit small cafés and shops. This vibrant city is sure to keep pregnant mothers happy and excited!

Our very own Creative Director, Jalu, wasn't really a big fan of being photographed. However, after 8 months of working in SweetEscape and (naturally) getting exposed to SweetEscape's beautiful photos in a lot of beautiful locations around the world, Jalu started to feel that maybe being photographed isn't such a bad idea after all.
So, for his family holiday in Tokyo this year-end, Jalu booked his first-ever session. What impressed him the most is how easy the booking process turned out to be–just through the app. His interesed was piqued even higher when he met the photographer who was very friendly and easy to converse with.
"I also noticed how professional their cameras and gears were! So it made me even more convinced that my photos would turn out to be great!" said Jalu.
When Jalu received the photos, he was surprised at how beautiful the photos turned out to be. His wife loved the session and the photos, his young daughter–which he feared wouldn't enjoy the shoot–also absolutely loved it, even he himself looked good in the photos!
"The photographers really know how to find the perfect angle for you, I never thought my photos would turn out these great!" said Jalu. "I absolutely love it, and I'd definitely book more sessions when I travel to other interesting locations in the future."
Sheena Buraga and her husband Daniel are truly one of the most unique clients SweetEscape had recently. Their 'Seasons of Love' pre-nup concept is really inspiring, and SweetEscape is proud and honoured to be a part of their love journey from the very start when Daniel first proposed to Sheena in Tokyo (spring), to their pre-nup shots in Nami Island (autumn) and Niseko (winter), and finally to their final pre-nup shot in Siargao (summer).
"Between May and June 2018 after the proposal, we started planning for our wedding. At first we thought that the photos in Tokyo would be our proposal / engagement photos, and we wanted to capture another pre-nup photoshoot, not with SweetEscape. But when seeing our proposal photos shot by SweetEscape, everybody said that our pre-nup shoots will look less beautiful compared to the super-beautiful photos of our proposal taken by SweetEscape! Considering this, and since we were travelling to Nami Island, South Korea in the autumn, we decided to create this 'Four Seasons of Love' pre-nup concept with SweetEscape!" said Sheena when asked about what made them keep taking their pre-nup shots with us.
TV reporter Najla Hilabi always puts an extra care for her Instagram feed; she wants it to look extra neat and beautiful, and this was her initial reason to use SweetEscape. After knowing about us from an Instagram ad, she decided to book her first session for her trip to Prague.
"I don't know if I'd ever go back to Prague again, so I thought it was important to capture my moments there with a proper photography service," said Najla.
What impressed her was eventhough there were some language barrier with the photographer, the photos still turned out beautiful, and the photographer brought her to the hidden gems of the already enchanting city. This, in addition to the beautiful photos she received afterwards, made her book another session for her recent trip to Tokyo.
"I feel that SweetEscape always maintains their standard of quality. You don't just get your raw photos, you get perfectly curated and professionally edited photos, and this careful production process really makes me love SweetEscape!"
