Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is included in a single setup?
    A setup refers to the chosen theme or background that sets the overall look and feel of the session. It involves planning the concept, colors, props, clothing, accessories, and everything needed to create the desired composition. It's important to note that a setup can also take place in a natural or candid environment, whether it's indoors or outdoors. Within a setup, you can expect a variety of poses and the use of different props against the same background setting. However, it's necessary to discuss this prior to the photo session to ensure that all the necessary preparations are made in time.
  • What will be the location of the shoot?
    To ensure a seamless and comfortable experience, I specialize in providing "shoot at home" services. This means you can have the photo session right in the comfort of your own home, making it quick, effortless, and hassle-free for you. We can explore various options, whether it's an indoor setting(home or studio) or an outdoor location that offers a natural and candid environment. The selection of the location will be based on the theme's requirements from a photographic perspective, as well as factors such as ease of access, weather conditions, and convenience for the parents and the child. Choosing an exquisite or distant location may affect the package cost.
  • What should be worn during the session? What about hair and makeup?
    The choice of clothing will primarily depend on the selected theme and will need to be arranged by the parents themselves. If desired, I can provide clothing options or arrange custom-made outfits for an additional charge. For the newborn session, just focus on feeding and diapers. I have plenty of wraps, swaddles, and accessories available. If you'd like, custom-made knitted rompers can be arranged at an extra cost. To keep your baby cosy, having 2-3 pacifiers or soothers in a newborn size would be great. Please note that detailed makeup or hair is not recommended for either the baby or the mother. If professional assistance is desired, it needs to be arranged externally. We will discuss all these details thoroughly during a pre-session call. Please be aware that the total number of outfits worn during the session will be counted.
  • Can either of the parent, sibling or any other member of the family be included in a session?"

  • How long does a session last?
    The duration of a session depends on the number of setups chosen. A single setup typically lasts a maximum of 2 hours, taking into consideration the settling time for the baby. For sessions with multiple setups, the duration will depend on various factors, including the health, condition, energy level, threshold, and involvement of the parents and child.
  • How is the comfort and hygiene of the moms and children prioritized?
    All the wraps, fur, props, backdrops, and accessories are washed, sanitized, and carefully packed after each use. They are then stored in a clean space until the next session. I prioritize creating a pleasant, non-rushed, and comfortable experience for each session. Safety, comfort, and satisfaction is above all.
