Frequently asked questions

We strive for the utmost professionalism, to maintain that we follow a few guidelines, policies, and work ethics. You are requested to read and understand the below-mentioned details carefully. We suggest you book the session with us only if you are ok with our work process and terms & conditions.

WHAT IS THE BEST AGE TO PHOTOGRAPH MY BABY?


- Our favourite window of time is between 7 to 12 days of age. This timing is important. Newborn babies are more flexible and have a ‘newborn curl’ from being inside the womb that allows them to be more easily posed. They also sleep more soundly in the first two weeks of life.  
- However, the packages are valid for 5-60 days for newborn babies. 

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY BABY’S NEWBORN SESSION?


- Preferably a tentative session is booked based on your due date while you are still 
pregnant to guarantee your session. Once the baby is born, notify us in please notify us within 48 hours after the baby is born and a firm date will be scheduled.
- If you missed out on booking a session before delivery, don't stress, please reach out to us as the session is available for the age of 5-60 days. 
- However, priority scheduling is given to existing bookings.
- We book a limited amount of newborn sessions each month.
- Confirmation of the session is required at least 10-15 days in advance.

MY NEWBORN BABY HAS JAUNDICE/DRY SKIN. SHOULD I WAIT UNTIL IT'S GONE OR CAN WE STILL COME IN FOR A NEWBORN SESSION?


- Jaundice and minor skin conditions are very common in newborn babies. Dry skin is also common 
among newborn babies. We have done photoshoots for newborns with jaundice and/or other skin 
conditions. Most of it will be covered in retouching and editing. So you don’t have to wait for jaundice 
or other skin issues to be gone.

HOW DO YOU POSE MY BABY AND WHAT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS DO YOU USE?


-When it comes to photographing your sweet precious newborn, We will only photograph your baby in the safest ways possible. Not all newborns can pose in all positions.
-The utmost care will be given to placing your baby in natural positions that mimic the way your little one may have laid in the womb. Every baby is different; some babies love to be on their back, while some prefer to be on their tummy. There are some that like to be swaddled and there are some that like to stretch their limbs. Some babies sleep through the entire session and some babies are wide-awake. If the baby doesn’t like to be in a certain pose or feeling fussy or uncomfortable with a position, they will let me know, and We will move on. We follow the baby’s lead. Parent participation will be 
requested for shots that require head and neck support as well as using mom or dad as a spotter.
