When is the best time in my pregnancy to schedule my maternity session ?
Maternity sessions are typically done between 28 to 36 weeks. This is a time frame where your beautiful belly is of ample size yet you’re not as “puffy” and uncomfortable. Please keep in mind that past 36 weeks is not ideal for most mothers as a photo session is an activity that requires walking and moving around.
How soon should I schedule my session ?
It’s never too early to schedule your maternity session. Sometimes I can accommodate last minute requests, but I recommend a 2-3 week notice to be on safer side.
How long does a session last ?
Depending on the package the session might last for 1 - 3 hrs.
How do I book my maternity session?
Booking your session is super easy. Get in touch with us to know the packages on offer. You can either email at email@example.com or call us at 7022291235. Once you have selected the package of your choice, you can update us on your selection & preferred date & time. To reserve your dates, there is a Non-Refundable SESSION FEE of 50% due, at the time of booking which goes toward your session fee. The balance package amount will be due on the day of the photo shoot. Once you transfer the advance amount, let me know so that I can check and send you email confirmation of the same.
What should I wear for the maternity session ?
Flow maxi dresses & Form fitting dresses are great. A snug fitting tank / tube top with a low riding yoga skirt can be a great look to show off your beautiful bump. Keep clothing selections for maternity portraits simple. Stripes and busy patterns can hide the stomach or detract attention away from it. Instead, stick with solid colors.
You are also welcome to use dresses from our wardrobe at no extra cost. Almost all the outfits that are seen on this page are from our collection.
Can I include my husband & children in the session ?
Yes! I really recommend having some photos that include your family. It’s always important to capture that very amazing moment of your life with the most special people.
Can we bring our camera or take photos from our mobiles during the session ?
Taking photos during the session is not allowed. I work very hard to ensure your session is captured artistically in the best possible way. I ask that you respect our livelihood and refrain from taking photographs of what I am creating during the session.
Where will the session take place ?
This depends on the type of session you would like. As we specialize in studio photography most of our indoor sessions will take place at our studio in Whitefield, Bangalore. We also provide on location studio setups on request. The outdoor sessions usually takes place in nearby parks or residential areas or any other location of your choice.
What all is included in the portrait session fee ?
Your portrait session fee includes a pre-session consultation over phone and how-to guides regarding wardrobe styling, your portrait session, processing and preparation of the images and the final print products (if included in the package)
What about my hair & makeup?
We would share best references that go along with your dresses and we recommend you to hire a professional Hair & Makeup artist to get ready for your session. If required we can arrange Hair & Makeup at additional cost.
I want an outdoor session but what if the weather doesn't co operate ?
In the case of inclement weather (rain, storms, etc.) we will simply reschedule to another open day/time. I do leave open spots in my calendar for just such events.
However it’s important to note that We do not reschedule simply because the sky is overcast or the temperature is cool. We love doing a photo shoot when it’s overcast because the lighting is great any time of day! We ask clients for all sessions to dress appropriately for that day’s weather.
I’m interested in an at home session but how do I know if my home is a good setting for photos ?
For at-home sessions, I generally look for locations with larger windows (the more the better) and plenty of natural light. In addition, larger rooms (or an open floor plan) and simple, uncluttered decor are best. Even otherwise, we can use strobes and flashes with our custom hand painted canvas backdrops for the shoot.
Can I get all the raw files from the shoot ?
I’m sorry, but we don’t provide any RAW files. Clients are hiring me not only to provide a product– the finished image– but a process as well. Without the process there actually is no finished image. “Getting your money’s worth” has nothing to do with the number of images shot, but everything to do with the quality of the images delivered.
For example:- The price tag of a painting does not include all of the painter’s rough drafts. Paintings and sculptures do not come with the artist’s initial sketches.
When can I get my photos & do I get to choose which photos will be edited and delivered ?
After the shoot, mostly in a week's time, a link will be shared for shortlisting from which you can select as per your preference and submit. That list will go through post-processing and delivered within 3 - 4 weeks.
Can I upgrade the package after the shoot or buy extra photos ?
Yes, you always have an option of buying more in case if you like more photos or Upgrade the package during your shortlisting session.
Each additional high resolution edited digital photo: Rs. 1000
Do you share our images on your website, social media and other places ?
Yes. The images are shared on various social media platforms online and in print too. Photography is a form of expression for me and being able to share my work with others keeps me motivated. Photography being an art form is very similar to painting, if you couldn’t show your painting with the world then it would be of no use. However, certain events may be time sensitive like maternity etc so I would delay sharing images for such events.
