FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Maternity photoshoot

  • When do you recommend to take the photos?

    The ideal period for maternity photoshoots is from 27th till 33rd week, because you can still move properly and it is not that tough for your body, furthermore the bump is nicely shaping too.

    In case you can only make it from the 33-36th week, I will try to do my best to make it happen as well. (You can use the 35% of the deposit after the 33rd week in case of cancellation.) But it may be riskier (because the due date is closer), uncomfortable and inconvenient for you.

    Therefore I highly recommend to not leave it for the last moment, because my goal is to create a joyful, memorable event and wonderful photos.

  • How many weeks earlier should I book the appointment?

    I kindly ask you to please contact me 4-6 weeks before you would like to have the photoshoot, so we can definitely find the best date for you.

    Booking

    To the pre-selected, retouched photos I’m going to send you the password-protected link within 3 weeks. From those photos, you can select which ones you would like to get as part of the package. The photos cannot be seen by anyone else than you, you cannot download them and as soon as you are done with the selection I will remove them from the internet. Then you are going to receive the selected photos from me digitally.

    To keep the quality of my photos, I do not provide the raw photos to anyone under any circumstances.

    Thank you for your understanding.

  • May I cancel the photoshoot in case something comes up?

    You may cancel your photoshooting minimum 7 days before the discussed date.

    In case of emergency health issues (e.g. doctors kept you in the hospital because of any risk) or you are giving birth earlier than expected and we are within 7 days, you may use the 50% of your deposit at another photoshoot provided by me. But please let me know in all cases as soon as possible if you cannot make it to the photoshoot. Thank you.

  • Should I pay a deposit?

    Yes, in all cases. This is the final step of the booking. The price of this also depends on which package you choose, we will discuss the details before you need to transfer the money.

    It’s a guarantee that I can count on you to appear at the shooting and we are not wasting each other’s time, neither someone else’s (hair and makeup artists, studio landlords, etc.). I hope it’s understandable.

  • May I get more photos than the ones included in the package?

    Sure, all photos over the ones included in the package are retouched for 2000 HUF/photo.

Newborn photoshoot

  • When do you recommend to take photos of our newborn baby?

    The ideal time for newborn photo-shoot is between the 5th – 12th day after your baby was born because at this time they can sleep deeply, peacefully. It is very important to take the photos within 14 days after your baby was born because I can only take photos with well-sleeping babies. Otherwise, I cannot provide you with the expected photos. Between 14-21 days you can only take photos of babies who are sleeping very well and do not suffer from a tummy ache.
    In the case of prematurely born babies, it differs naturally. In that case, the pictures should be taken within one week after you got home from the hospital with your child.

  • How many weeks earlier should I book the appointment?
    1. I kindly ask you to please drop me an SMS or an e-mail as soon as your baby was born (and you are capable) and let’s discuss the most suitable appointment for you and the details.
    2. Then you need to transfer me the deposit (15 000 HUF). It’s a guarantee that I can count on you to appear at the shooting and we are not wasting each other’s time, neither someone else’s. I hope it’s understandable. Naturally, the deposit counts in the total fee.
    3. Your booking is valid if the first two steps are done.
  • Where are you based? In which studios are you holding the photoshoots?

    I do not prefer to go to studios when having a newborn photoshoot, because studios are not clean enough for babies.
    Therefore I used to hold these photo shootings at my own 25m2 living room, which is big enough and all the tools and props can fit here well. I can also do the photoshooting at your home, but it costs more in this case and I can provide much fewer tools and props than at my place.

  • Can I choose the accessories for the photoshoot? Where can I check your accessories?

    We are going to discuss in advance which color and style is your favorite. According to this, I will prepare the props, dresses, wraps, decoration, etc. The accessories are not limited, neither the time for the photoshooting. As a newborn’s immune system is very fragile, I pay special attention to keeping my accessories clean and to stay healthy. In case I would not feel well I will let you know immediately and we are going to change the date accordingly.

  • How long does the photoshoot take?

    In general, it takes 3 to 6 hours, it depends fully on your baby.

  • What should I prepare with?

    It is extremely important to prepare yourself for the photoshoot with breastmilk or formula. A fulfilled tummy is the key to have a calm, peaceful and sleeping baby. You can only get calmness with a full tummy, therefore I kindly ask you to please be prepared that your baby will eat often during the photoshoot, because we will move her/him (in various poses). It would be great if the baby could eat at my place right before the photoshoot, in case this is feasible (but of course please do not destroy the baby’s little daily routine for this). You may prepare with some tools, toys, fresh flowers, accessories, dresses related to the job or hobbies of the family. White shirt/T-shirt/top and jeans can be useful at family pictures. It’s not even a problem if the top is small at your belly, we are shooting the pics from the breast level.
