Frequently asked questions

NEWBORN

When is the best time to photograph my baby?


The ultime time to photograph newborns is between 7 and fourteen days with ten days old being ideal. This is also the best time frame before the baby acne sets in. A newborn session will typically last 2-3 hours. But don't worry, this doesn't mean we can't photograph newborns after 2 weeks. Most of the images in our portfolio are from newborns from 5 days old to 1.5 months old. Also remember we are able to cater and adjust our sessions to all ages.




How much does it cost and where will the photoshoot be located?


The newborn session fee starts at IDR 2.250.000 (mini session package). This pays for our time and expertise and includes pictures with all members of the direct family.




Do you have experience photographing newborn babies safely?


Great question. I have 3 years experience photographing babies from newborn to almost 1 year old. A typical newborn session can last up to three hours and your baby will be with us for most of that time. I have been trained by the best in the industry to handle and pose them safely. We practice safe posing techniques and put the comfort and safety of your baby first.




Will flash photography harm my baby?


Absolutely not, the light that is emitted from my studio equipment is no brighter than that which comes through your window at home on a bright overcast day. It is also not a direct flash rather an indirect form of lighting where the light will bounce off our softbox beforehand.




Do I need to bring any props of accessories to my newborn session?


We have a range amount of props in our studio. You are however welcome to bring a particular type of prop for a certain theme you are desiring for.




Studio vs Home Session


- In order to achieve the consistent results that you see in my website, newborn and baby sessions are held at my Studio. At my studio I have set up a special room for the family where they can sit back and relax. It includes a couch, 32" tv with cable, with snacks and drinks. - My studio is exclusively for newborn and family pics only. It is clean and the temperature is adjusted at 29 degrees celcius for the newborn session. The parents and family members however are in an air conditioned room. - For the sake of the baby we try to maintain a clean and non smoking environment. - At my studio you will also have more access to my props.




When are you available?


My services and my studio are always available from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 3 pm WIB. All sessions are by appointments only and are usually booked weeks in advanced.




How to Book?






CAKE SMASH

What is a Cake Smash?


A cake smash is where a one year old gets very messy and taste the cake texture for their first time and a professional photographer captures the moment.




When do I need to book?


If you are hoping to book over a WEEKEND, ideally your session will be booked as far in advance as possible as I can be booked up for some months. I suggest to book at the minimum of 2 months prior your expected session date. If you a re intending to use the images for a party invitation or to display at the party, you may want to consider booking when your baby is around the 11-month mark. I only accept as many as bookings a I can reasonably shoot, edit and return to my clients in my targeted time frame of two weeks. I currently take session bookings on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.




How long will the session last?


The length of the session of course, be shorter or longer than usually time of 1-1.5 hours. As it is more about trying to achieve a great range of images than filling an allotted time with the shoot. - Free photos with parents at same background : 15 minutes - Cake Smash : 1 hour




Where may the session be held?


Cake smash sessions are scheduled at my studio which is located in Lebak Bulus at South Jakarta due to level of set-up and clean-up involved after the session.




Who may attend the session?


Family members are very welcome to attend the session and the studio will comfortably hold a number of people. However, bear in mind that children can become distracted by too large an audience.




What happens if I need to cancel or postpone?


People get sick and circumstances change meaning that ocassionally cancellations or postponements are unavoidable. I require as much as notice as possible for changes to our booking at the minimum of 4 days prior the session date. Should the postponement occur less than 4 days, there will likely be an additional charge to cover the cost of new cake. I require payment of the session fee upon booking to hold your appointment and this will be forfeited in the case of an outright cancellation without mitigating circumstances. Subject to availability i am happy to reschedule to accomodate changes due to illness.




How do I choose the cake smash theme?


Have a think about what would you like to get out of the session and whether there are any particular props that you would like to include. Ideas for cake smash props include bunting, balloons, and an outfit that you can choose in our studio. You are invited to bring along your own outfit. We have collection of cake smash theme that you can see in our portfolio. If you would like to have a special character on your theme, there will be additional fee on that. You can contact us and have a chat with us for the details.




What should I prepare?


Bring towel, change of clothing for the birthday child and yourself, body wash for your baby especially if their skin is a sensitive skin type, cake topper with your baby name, food, drink, milk and snacks. The most important is to prepare your kids not to get tired and have nap prior the session. Then they will give us their best smiles!!




How long after the session can I expect to see my images?


We will give the link to access all of your photos during the session which you can download it as well. The average number of photos during the session could be vary > 100 photos. Then you can choose the photos you would like to edit. Depending the number of the photos, but allow us to give the edited photos in 1 week after the day you choose the photo. Then another 7-10 days to print and send the free 6R frame to your place. Let us know, if you have a special request to get the photos edited as soon as possible. We only allow one photo if you have a rush or special occasion.
