What if I want Hair and Makeup?
We have some artists' contacts for you in a prep guideline we send. Contact them directly as we do not take any commissions. You can use our studio or have them doll you up in your home! However, please let us know your preference on this.
What should my family wear?
We recommend colour coordinated outfits with less loud branding/logos/wordings. Think solid colours and subtle prints! We do not provide outfits for them.
How do you calculate the hour/timing of the shoot?
It usually takes 45-90mins.
We also consider the children's energy level to get the best outcome.
For outdoor, additional time may be required walking around the location etc.
Bad weather. What now?
Reschedule. No charge.
That is provided our customer and us both decide to reschedule due to weather forecast a couple hours before the shoot.
Once on location however, we will not be able to replace the lost time nor reschedule.
I am not sure about posing. Will the photographer guide me?
The photographer will guide you through all the poses. If you have any preferred references please let her know.
How long before I get my lovely photos?
Hang in there! After 2 weeks we will send you a link for downloading your softcopies.
What is the difference between basic edited and fully edited photos?
Basic edits include overall brightness, colours and cropping adjustments. Full edits bring it one step further with skin retouching/slimming or any specific requests on the persons in the photos.
