RECOMMENDATIONS FOR 6 TO 12 MONTHS BABY STUDIO SESSION
Preparing for a photo session of a 6 to 12 months baby in studio requires a few simple steps to be aware of, so that it is a beautiful experience and the photos we create together to be the ones you desire with your baby. Bellow you have all the details necessary to know when you come to the studio with your baby.
We can use outfits from the studio wardrobe for your baby. The studio will be heated accordingly - please do not worry about it.
The props are prepared by me. However if you have a special object that you would like for us to use, please bring it with you (a blanket, a teddy, etc). It is important that you choose only that object that really holds a special meaning to you. We will pick the colors together.
If you made a newborn session for your baby and you used a special object, it would be lovely to bring it so we can mark the baby's growth.
I highly recommend that you avoid clothes that have drawings, logo's and texts on them. It is best to bring an outfit of neutral colour, simple and without elements that distract you (white, beige, pastel).
They do not look good and will outdate the images fast. You should avoid clothing that sparks or which large prints. If in doubt I am more than wiling to help you choose, if you send me photos of the outfits you were considering.
How long does a newborn session lasts?
The photo session usually lasts for 1 hour. I will photograph the baby first, and at the end we will do the parents shots.
What do you need to bring?
So that we are in no rush and for your to have a pleasant experience, please bring extra diapers, moist napkins milk bottle if the baby is not breastfed.
For the photo session to go as smoothly as possible please bare in mind a few things
1) please do not vaccinate at least with 2 days prior to the photo session. the babies tend to be grumpy and in no mood for photo session.
2) it is important that the baby is well rested before the session, so make sure he has a nap before.
3) avoid any agitation and strong stimuli which would make the baby tired
4) I do not recommend the presence of other people besides the parents and siblings at the photo session
5) please let me know if you are planing to bring other people at the session so we can prepare accordingly as the baby work time is limited at this age
Things to know when entering the studio
The photo session takes place in a space with special light and props equipments, which require special attention.
We suggest you follow the rules of use of the space
It is very important, that when necessary, the shoes you use during a session to be very very very clean. Access with regular street shoes is not allowed in the studio, and they will be left at the entrance of the studio. There are slippers that can be used at the studio. I usually photograph everyone barefoot, from an aesthetic point of view, and for newborn sessions I usually take the family shots from waist up.
the session you booked has a specific fixed duration and depending on this, other appointments will be made. This why please bare in mind that extending the photo session's time will be done only in the limit of photographer's available time and at the costs of a new session. Please be on time.
If one of the family member is ill, can he come to the photo session?
In order to keep my tiny clients as well as me (the photographer) healthy, if any of the family members have health problems that are potentially contagious (cold, flu, enterocolitis, cough etc.), the session will be rescheduled according to the availability of the agenda, or the sick person can not attend the photo session. I work closely with newborns who have a delicate immune system. The studio is sanitised before each session and I do my best to keep myself healthy for my customers. Please do not enter the studio if you are sick. This can bring me and my clients into contact with viruses that will force me to reschedule many newborn sessions. In the event that you arrive at the studio and one of the family members is sick, the session will be canceled in order to not endanger the babies who come to the studio. Thank you for understanding!
How many setups will be made?
We will normally do 2-3 simple setups
When and how do we pay? Is there an advance to be paid?
The payment is done at the end of each session, in cash or by bank transfer (online banking). I do not require advanced payment because I believe in the common sense of all people and I am convinced you will let me know if you need to reschedule or cancel your booking if an exceptional situation should arise to prevent you from keeping your booking.
How do we receive the photos?
The digital files (which you can choose from a selection of un-edited images) will be received through a private online gallery about 8 weeks after the photo session. After editing the session, it's possible that I will post a selection of images on Facebook / website with some pictures with your consent.
I want more photos! Is it possible?
If you want additional images on top of those included in the package, you can purchase them extra for 10 lei / image. Most families believe that the number of photos included in the packages is enough.
Do we sign a contract?
Of course. You will receive the contract in advance to be studied and digitally signed.
These personalised recommendations will also be emailed for you and will include details about studio address, phone number, etc.
