FAQ's - Family Portrait Session

Below provided are some of the most common FAQ’s for a Family Portrait Session

  1. Who will be the Photographer?

    Amrita Samant will be capturing your portraits, unless stated as team shooting.

  2. Where will the shoot take place?

    We can collaboratively decide a venue to do your session. Either indoors at your home, at our/a studio or outdoors at a park.

    In Chennai: We typically shoot at Semmozhi Poonga which has an entrance fee of Rs.2000 for the photoshoot.
    In Bangalore: Cubbon park Or Indira Gandhi Musical Fountain park (Raj Bhavan Road)
    Any other city: I’m happy to work with your suggestion or I will do due research to help find a great location!

  3. What time do these  shoots typically take place?

    We shoot during your little one’s routine playtime, preferably right after a nap. The time gap between when your child wakes up to starting the shoot, at a minimal, for best results.

  4. Will you provide clothing for the Family Portrait shoot?

    Families can wear their own outfits for the shoot, please. It can be a theme to or even co-ordinated.

  5. What kind of clothes should we wear to a photoshoot?

    Ideally, light and solid coloured outfits look best, for everyone. Whites, creams, beige, peach, light blue, yellow etc look really good. Avoid printed clothing as much as possible to avoid taking the attention away from your expressions.

  6. What if the child doesn’t cooperate? Are you flexible with time?

    Yes, we are flexible with time as we are working with children. Ideally, we time our shoots to ensure this does not happen. We shoot ONLY during the baby’s routine playtime for the same reason. If, in a situation, the child doesn’t cooperate, we will go with the pace of the child.

  7. My Child has stranger anxiety. Have you dealt with this before?

    Yes, I would ask you not to worry. Again, we will work with the pace of the child and try our very best to befriend them at the earliest possible. For the most part, having you around will put them at ease.

  8. When will we receive the images after we complete a portrait session?

    We take up to 30 days for the delivery of images. If, in case, you wish to get the images on priority, we do have a ‘Quick delivery’ option at an additional charge. To explain, we are covering a lot of shoots per month, hence I really require the time to do justice to the images and deliver a good set to you in 30 days.

  9. Do you have props for Family Portraits?

    My style is to make Family portraits natural and simple, as a style or approach. 
    So we don’t have any Family props, but we can arrange for the props you require with good notice. These props will come at an additional cost (on actuals) from our vendor

  10. How many days earlier should we make a booking?

    A three weeks notice is good enough if you are flexible about weekdays. But if you are looking for a specific weekends/ a specific date, kindly inform us at the earliest possible, as some dates and weekends get booked out a month or two in advance.

  11. Can we do both indoor and outdoor locations for a Family shoot?

    Yes, but please ensure to pick the bigger package for the same as it will be extremely rushed to do it in our mini-session package.  At my end, I do need time in each location (indoor/outdoor) to give you good portraits.
