RECOMMENDATIONS FOR TODDLERS AND CHILDREN OUTDOOR SESSIONS
To make your child's session as fun as possible and to provide you with invaluable memories, the photo sessions with babies over 1 year of age take place exclusively outdoor. After the age of one, children are no longer responding to the stimulus in the studio, being more interested in exploring the space rather than staying in the picture.
After 4-5 years of age children can be successfully again be photographed in the studio. There are however toddlers who love being photographed in studio as well :).
The outfits for toddlers between 12-24 months can be used from the studio's props during the summer season. I recommend you bring 3 outfits for the child and one for parents. The colors will be discussed together according to the season.
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 the session lasts?
The photo session lasts for about 1 hour, and the time of day will be approximately 1.5 hours before sunset, this is why bare in mind that any delay will shorten the duration of the photo session.
What do you need to bring?
So that we do not rush, please bring extra diapers (if it is necessary), moist napkins, water and snacks, and an warmer outfit for the child for the end of the session when you leave home.
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. Babies/ children tend to be grumpy and in no mood for photo session. It is however important that they are healthy
2) it is important that the child 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 child 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 child work time is limited
Where does the session take place?
We will decide together where the location should be, and I will suggest a few options where the light is just right for the photo session, free of charge within 20 km of Iași.
If you want to be photographed in a special location outside the 20 km range, there will be extra charges depending on the distance and the time necessary to get to the location.
Do you bring props for outdoor sessions?
The props will be minimal and will depend on choice of location. We can further discuss these details via e-mail.
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.
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.
