FAQs for a Newborn Portrait Session
Who will be the Photographer?
Amrita Samant will be capturing your portraits, unless stated as team shooting.
Where will the shoot take place?
We can collaboratively decide a venue to do your session. Indoors at your home, at our/a studio is the best for a Newborn.
Our Studio is Located on Spur Tank Road - Chetpet
What time do these shoots typically take place for a Newborn?
Newborn is best done within 5-20 days of birth.
Will you provide clothing for the Newborn Portrait shoot?
We take care of all clothing, wraps/swaddles for newborns, to ensure they fit well and coordinate with the rest of our props. Parents can wear their own outfits for the shoot, please.
What kind of clothes should we wear to a photoshoot (Family,Parents)?
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.
What if the Newborn doesn’t cooperate? Are you flexible with time?
Yes, we are flexible with time as we are working with a Newborn. Ideally, we time our shoots to ensure this does not happen. We shoot ONLY after the newborn’s routine massage,bath and feed for the reason that they get into deep sleep post this routine. If, in a situation, the Newborn doesn’t cooperate, we will go with the pace of the baby.
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.
Do you have props for Newborn Portraits?
Yes, we do provide various props for a Newborn shoot. We can provide you with reference albums so you have an idea of what we have.
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.
Do the portrait sessions include family portraits?
Yes! All our sessions include family portraits that include the Mother, father and siblings (if any).
Should I be worried about the Newborn props Hygiene and safety involved?
Yes, as are we! We can assure you that all our props, fabrics, wraps are hygienic and well maintained. I’m a newborn-safety trained photographer and I generally walk you through each set-up before I execute it to ensure you approve of the same. I’m happy to work with you to do what makes you and the baby comfortable. No pose is forced upon the baby and we work with the baby’s rhythm for the most part.
