Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently asked questions
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?
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
