The FAQ will help us to ensure a smooth session for you and your newborn. If you can’t find what you’re looking for here, you can always email or whatsapp us.
Typically 1 – 2 months before giving birth. We only do one session per day to ensure you get the best results. We require 50% deposits to secure your slot.
No worries, as long we have empty slots that match our schedule, we will put you in.
Best within 5 – 14 days of life. During this time, newborn babies are very sleepy and flexible for posing.
Each baby is different. Some babies are still flexible but typically older babies require more time and effort to pose. For the best result, we recommend babies within 2 weeks old.
Each session consists of 1 classic and 2 props.
For classic, We use fabric backdrops and newborn wraps. The baby is the highlight with classic poses such as taco, side-lying, chin on arms, etc. For props, we use props such as basket, wooden box, flowers, and many other supporting items.
For sure, and we don’t charge extra for that. The star of the day is the newborn, so we’ll do the parents and siblings together with the newborn towards the end of the session.
Sure, please discuss with us 1 month before the session to ensure enough time to prepare for a new theme that fits our style. Our style is generally simple and clean, and emphasis more on the baby instead of the props. We also avoid the use of digital imaging (adding fake background or objects).
Most of our newborn sessions are done in our studio at Kedoya Green Garden. We also provide on-location service with additional charge.
Our newborn session usually lasts between 2 – 4 hours. Some newborns need more time to get into deep sleep and this is something we can’t predict, we ask everyone to remain calm as baby can pick up nervousness and frustration in the room. Prior to the session, We would ask for parents corporation to feed the baby full. A full baby is a sleepy baby, and we need our babies to be fully asleep to pose them well.
Most of our newborn photo session happens in the comfort of the client’s home. We need 2×3 meter space, and we would be happy to move your furniture around and put it all back when we’re done. We advise mainly indoor to ensure baby’s safety, but if you have a good backyard, or pool we can do outdoors.
• Please bring more milk than usual. A fed baby is a happy baby, and a happy baby is a sleepy baby. And we love sleepy babies because they are posable!
• Relax. Your baby is safe in our hands. We’re pretty comfortable holding and posing newborns.
• Volume Down. Keeping the voices down helps to ensure smooth photo session. The older sibling might create a little noise. If possible please bring a nanny to take care of the older sibling to keep them happy.
• Speak Up. Newborn’s safety is our number one priority. If you have any concern during the session, let us know. We don’t want you to be uncomfortable. For that reason, we always have the parents or assistant nearby to lend support if needed.
• Turn off the aircon 30 minutes before our session to ensure that the room is warm enough for the newborn.
• Loosen up the baby diaper and clothing at least 30 minutes before the session. This gives time for the imprinted mark to disappear.
• With your permission, sometimes we like to use the bed as the backdrop. So please make the bed, as we don’t want a messy bed.
Eighty percent of our work are using natural light as they work magically on the soft newborn skin. We only use artifical light (flash) if it’s absolutely necessary during the rainy days. Prior to our arrival, it’s best to open the curtains so we could spot the best source of natural light in your home. Usually, the best spot is whenever there is a large window.
• Mom. Keep it simple, throw in colour that you’d like, but avoid busy patterns. We suggest cotton knit and knit tops. It’s simple and timeless.
• Dad. Long or short sleeved knit. Undershirts also work well. Make sure your T-shirt is free of logos or too much writing and smoothing the wrinkles by ironing them. We’re also big fans of skin-on-skin portraits with you holding your baby against you.
