I receive lot of emails daily that tend to ask me a lot of the same questions about Newborn photography. I sure don’t mind!… but I think you may find it helpful to be able to browse my most frequently asked questions (FAQ) from past clients.
WHY CHOOSE PHOTOKRAFT?
Honestly, Newborn photography is different from Wedding or Other genres. Have a good look through my portfolio. My style of shoot is simple & minimalist. Do you like my style? If that is what you are looking for then Photo Kraft is for you.
And, when you commission Photographer, you aren’t just hiring him to “snap” a few pictures. His exquisite use of light, deep passion and understanding of photography, understanding of children, and desire to provide you with timeless works of ART are all part of the package.
WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY NEWBORN PHOTO SESSION?
Ideally newborn sessions are held between 5-14 days. This is because brand new babies are the most sleepy and curly so we can get them in those adorable squishy poses. While I really encourage and prefer that we do the session within 2 weeks I realize that sometimes there are reasons that the session cannot be done within this time frame. Should this happen, I will still photograph “older” newborns in, however, some of those desired posed/sleepy baby shots may not happen.
HOW LONG DOES A SESSION LAST?
Sessions typically last 2 1/2 hours…3 hours if we really need a little extra time. Believe me, the time will fly by so fast between preparing each set up, soothing/calming/nursing baby, and positioning baby.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE NEWBORN SESSION FEE?
It cover …
- pre-consultation time
- time/talent of the photographer
- travel on the day of the shoot (within Bangalore)
- use of quality props such as wraps, backdrops and carefully posed positioning
- custom edits for jaundice, acne, scratches, blotchy skin
- edited high resolution images for download as per package
- extra images may be available for purchase
- complimentary (if included) as per the package
HOW DO I BOOK A SESSION WHEN I’M NOT SURE WHEN BABY WILL BE BORN?
I highly suggest booking your session during your third trimester to guarantee yourself a spot on my newborn list. I can only take a limited amount of photo sessions each month. Obviously many babies are not often born on their due date so we just use your due date as a rough estimate. Once your baby is born, you will need to notify me within a couple day of birth so we can schedule your actual date/time.
CAN I USE SOMETHING I MADE OR PURCHASED TO INCLUDE IN THE SESSION?
Sure! Personal items will make your photos all the more special to you.
CAN SIBLINGS AND PARENTS BE IN A FEW SHOTS?
We can certainly do a couple of mom/dad and siblings.
DO I GET TO CHOOSE WHICH PHOTOS WILL BE IN MY GALLERY?
Please trust that I will shortlist the best images to edit and share for final shortlisting from your side.
ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW?
Keep baby awake for much of this time before your session. You can do this by bathing them, keeping them in a diaper, and talking to them. This is REALLY important for encouraging a sleepy baby for your session. Have baby dressed in a button up or zipper sleeper. Feed the baby just before the shoot.
