When is the best time to get a baby’s photo session done?
Baby sessions can happen anytime between 3 to 5 months of age. The best time is at 3.5 to 4 months age when babies can handle their neck, do tummy time without turning and start responding with smiles and expressions.
Where would the session take place?
All the sessions take place at our studio on Golf Course Road in Gurgaon. Our studio is comfortable, clean, naturally lit and temperature controlled. There is also a private feeding/changing room available for your use. Mothers feel super comfortable at our studio.
What is the difference between a baby setup and a family session?
A baby setup is designed to photograph just the baby.
A family session includes the baby and the parents. Please note that the baby is part of all the photos. A maximum of 2 adults are photographed in each image.
What should I bring for the baby to wear during the session?
Their feed and diapers. Also, don’t forget to bring 2-3 pacifiers/soother if your baby likes them. During the pre-session consultation, I will try and understand the looks you want. I will also understand the wardrobe you have for the baby and will guide you accordingly. I may have a few options available for the baby
If our package has a parents session, what should I or my husband wear?
You can get some ideas about the clothes from the portfolios that I have shared with you. However, I will give you detailed instructions (keeping in mind your taste and my style) during the pre-session consultation phone call, which happens after you book & confirm your session.
What about my hair & makeup?
We ask you to come ready for your session. I don’t recommend a detailed makeup and hair for a baby session. Just a basic makeup and blow-dry or straight hair can do. We don’t allow make-up artists for the baby sessions.
How long will the session last? What time should we arrive?
The timings for sessions varies with the package type. The classic package should take 30-40 minutes, provided that the baby is settled. The combo package takes about an hour. The Gold Session will last about 2 hours. The Platinum Session can take about 3 hours. Sometimes though babies can take a bit longer to settle, so ultimately we are at their mercy ;).
Depending on the weather and our mutual availability, a time will be decided. Please note that it’s important that you arrive on time for your appointment and so that I can keep my other appointments.
If you are delayed…
If you are more than one hour late, your session will be cancelled and the fee will be forfeited.
What if I am unable to make it to the session appointment?
The session should be rescheduled at least 5 days in advance. If you have a medical emergency, we can consider rescheduling the session at a short notice. Please submit a doctor’s certificate for consideration. If you don’t show up for your appointment or are over 1 hour late, your payment will be forfeited.
How do I book my session?
You can book your session by emailing me on [email protected] or calling me or sending a Whatsapp message on 98101-32036. Your booking is considered confirmed only once the deposit payment for the chosen package is received.
When will you deliver the photos?
Your original unprocessed session photos are delivered to you online by dropbox link within one week of your session.
From these original photos, you can shortlist the photos that you would like us to retouch and finish.
Once you inform us of your shortlisted photos that you would like us to retouch, we will take about 4-8 weeks from the date of your shortlisting to process your photos. Your final retouched, high resolution photos are delivered to you by dropbox as well.
What is the quality of soft copy photos?
The unedited/unprocessed digital photos are provided to you for the purpose of selection an are low resolution jpg files (1500 pixels on long side) and have a watermark across them saying, “for selection only – anega bawa photography”.
The final retouched images provided to you are in high-resolution jpg files (3000 pixels on long side) with our logo watermark in the middle (not on the subject but besides them).
Please note that as per our terms & conditions, we don’t allow printing of our photos outside our studio to maintain quality of our art. You do have the option to purchase the final retouched photos without logo watermark and as super high-resolution digitals (8-bit jpg & 16-bit psd) — these you can print outside our studio.
There is no option to get unedited photos in high resolution but we can still print these for you by adjusting brightness/contrast.
Please note that the photos printed by us will not have any logo or watermark.
Do you offer any printed products?
Prints are not part of the package but we offer high quality prints, wall portraits and coffee table books. Please check these out in person when you are visiting for your session.
Do you share our photos on social media and other places?
The short answer is – Yes, I do share the photographs from the sessions on my social media accounts, website, with newspapers, magazines, competitions etc.
Here’s the long answer: As a passionate artist, I try my very best to produce the most beautiful photos for you that will last you a lifetime. I really put my heart and soul into them. Sharing my work with the world helps me get motivated to keep going and produce even more beautiful body of work. Photography is a form of expression for me, so I need to share it. Imagine, you create something beautiful like a painting, only to be told that it can’t be shared. Imagine, if Mona Lisa didn’t want Leonardo-di-vinci to share her portrait with the world. So, I do share my body of work online and offline.
I am time-sensitive towards certain subject, like pregnancy or birthday photos, for which if you request me, I will wait for the event to pass successfully before I share the photos.
See you soon at my studio to create memories that will last beyond our lifetimes, for the generations to come.
