FAQs for Cake Smash Photoshoot in Delhi
When is the best time to get a cake smash session done?
Cake Smash sessions can happen anytime between 10 to 14 months of age. The best time is at 10th month so that you can have photos in time for the birthday.
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 & a bathroom with hot water for cleanup available for your use. Mothers feel super comfortable at our studio.
What is the difference between a cake smash setup, sitter setup and a family session?
A cake smash setup has a cake placed in front of the child for him to play, enjoy and smash the cake.
A sitter setup is designed to photograph just the baby.
A parent session includes photographs of mother & child, father & child and the complete family. 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 sitter to wear during the session?
Their food and diapers. During the pre-session consultation, I will try and understand the looks you want. I will also understand the wardrobe you have for the child and will guide you accordingly. I may have a few options available for the child.
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 minutes, provided that the baby is settled. The combo session should take about 60 minutes. 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?
For the cake smash, the session should be rescheduled at least 4-5 days in advance. This is important as the cake has to be made. If you have a medical emergency, we can consider rescheduling the session at a short notice – however, you will be charged Rs. 5000 towards the cost of the cake in case of postponing the session. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 unprocessed digital photos are provided to you for the purpose of selection only and are low-resolution jpg files (1000 pixels on long side) and have multiple watermarks across them saying, “anega bawa photography – for selection only”. These are only accessible on our website to help you select your final photos and are not downloadable.
The final retouched images provided to you are in high-resolution jpg files (2500 pixels on long side) with our logo watermark in the middle (not on the side).
We don’t recommend the printing of our photos outside our studio to maintain the quality of our art. You do have the option to purchase the final retouched photos without logo watermark. There is no option to get unedited photos but you can order extra edited/retouched or colour-corrected photos. Please note that the photos printed by us will not have any logo or watermark.
What is the difference between unprocessed, colour-corrected & edited/retouched photos?
Unprocessed Photos: The unprocessed digital photos are shared online with you on our selection portal for the purpose of selecting your final photos are low-resolution jpg files (1000 pixels on long side) and have a watermark across them saying, “for selection only – anega bawa photography”. These are not downloadable and are only for selecting final photos.
Colour-corrected Photos: This is a quicker editing style which I have recently started offering. To understand easily, you can think of it as a customised filter that I develop for each photo. Colour-correction will normally include photo-alignment & cropping as well. In summary, this is a faster, less-detailed editing style. Colour-corrected photos do NOT include background extension, body shaping, skin smoothening etc.
Edited/Retouched Photos: These are detailed hand edits that involve working for hours in photoshop. Editing/retouching happens on top of colour-corrected photos. Skin can be smoothened, blemishes are removed, body shape can be changed, backgrounds can be extended… if needed etc.
Both colour-corrected” & “edited/retouched” are 2500 pixels on the long side with our single logo watermark in the middle of the photo.
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.
