Frequently Asked Question(s)

  • Newborn

Finally I have the time to blog.

This time I’m not posting photos of my session, but will answer frequently asked question(s) from parents.. πŸ™‚ *sorry fellow photographers, will try to answer yours too* *finger crossed* πŸ˜€


Okay, now let’s start with the basic:

Q: If I want to booked newborn session how advance should it be?

A: I don’t have a minimum time limit to booked, but the sooner you booked I will put you on my schedule. And if you prefer to booked later or after your miracle is born, you must adjust to my free days πŸ™‚


Q: How old my miracle should be for a session?

A: I highly suggest to do newborn session for your miracle: between 5-14 days. And if for medical reasons the oldest is 4 weeks. But I will need more time *and more milk* to make him/her to sleep πŸ™‚
As for 5-14 days old babies tend to have more deep sleep and longer in the morning till afternoon.

Q: Where should the session be?
A: Home is the comfiest place to do newborn session. For mommy and your miracle. But now I have option for: Smallbites’s house πŸ˜€

Q: But baby under 1 month old shouldn’t go outside?
A: Babies under 1 month do go out from house, they go out to see paediatrician in the hospital. Where there’s lots of children with flu, cough or others. But still we go right?
Despite the possibilities of direct contact with virus or sick children *not that I say you shouldn’t go and see the doctor, just to show how we have faith even though there’s lots of virus* πŸ˜€
Sooo… my house is clean. A very safe environment for newborns πŸ˜‰

Q: Is it safe to pose a newborn?
A: Babies safety is my number one priority. So all of pose will be handle with care and with love from me to your miracle. To ease your mind, I have been a newborn photographer for 5 years and already handled hundreds of newborn babies πŸ™‚
I can tell poop face or pee face *yes I know, and I can tell you :D* I even learn the different type of crying. Crying because he/she is hungry or sleepy or just want to be hugged.

Q: What should I prepare for newborn session?
A: from props to blankets, the wooden floor to artificial grass, I will bring it to your home πŸ™‚
What parents should prepare: your own feelings. Don’t be scared or nervous, because I believe baby will feel your heart beat has different rhythm. Your babies for 9 months hear your heart beat 24/7. They know when you are sad or happy. And when you hold your babies with anxiety, you hold him/her near your heart beat *usually people put their babies head on their left side* So they know your feelings just by listening to your heart beat and your voice πŸ™‚
What I always suggest: relax and enjoy the moment. I know you will feel overwhelmed, between happiness, scared and tired because your baby is wide awake at night.
Try to focus on your miracle, the feelings of proud and joy flowing through your heart the minute you heard his/her scream :’)
The rest I will keep it as your memory πŸ™‚
oh yes, one more if you breastfed then you might need to prepare your breastmilk in bottles πŸ˜€

Q: How long will the session?
A: usually my newborn is around 2-3 hours. If it’s the day of his/her growth spurt (the day he/she drinks more than usual, because he is growing), than it might take more, because there will be a lot of pause for feeding and peeing πŸ˜€
Or for special cases the baby is hard to get a deep sleep, I will need more time to do my magic πŸ˜‰

Q: Can I take pictures?
A: as a parent in digital era, of course you want to show the world how cute your baby is *I know I do* πŸ˜›
So I never say no if you want to take pictures with your smart phone, but not your “digital camera”. And I highly appreciated if you don’t record the session πŸ™‚

Q: Can we and siblings join the session?
A: I am all about memories. And how to preserved it. So I highly suggest for parents and sibling to join the session, but still the star of the day is our newborn πŸ˜€
For mommies, don’t worry too much about your weight, it’s the newborn milestone that we are trying to keep. And it only last less than 1 month πŸ™‚
So a little chubby here and there because you carried your miracle is forgiven *don’t worry I will try my best to make you look at your best* πŸ˜‰
