FAQ

What is a milestone shoot?

The milestone shoot aims to capture the wonderful and different stages of your baby’s growth. Most common steps are: 1st week, 100 days, 6 months and 1st birthday.

How do I prepare the baby for the session?

If possible, feed the baby before your session to avoid feeding during the shoot. Please avoid vaccination and stress before coming to the shoot because, happy parents, happy baby, the more relaxed you are the better your baby will feel.

What if my child has baby acne or scratches?

The baby acne and scratches will be removed in your final artistically photographs. Each package comes with a different quantity of retouched images. Please refer to the price list for more information. Extra retouched images are available upon request.

What if my baby cries the whole session?

We will change, feed and soothe until he/she calms down. It is very rare for a baby to cry the whole session, if it happens we will reschedule. I do strongly recommend to bring a pacifier on the shoot.

What should I bring to my session?

The Studio is equipped with a changing station, please bring your own changing kit and feeding kit. I do strongly recommend to bring a pacifier on the shoot.

When do I schedule my milestone shoot?

Le studio’s calendar is pretty busy, so if you want to ensure your session please book it in advance. The sooner the better.

What should I do on the set?

Please supervise and stay near your child during the whole shoot, because you may be asked to hold a prop, pull in and out the pacifier in between shots if the baby is fussy. While I focus on taking nice photos, please focus on your children’s wellbeing. 

Which outfit should I choose for my baby and my family portrait?

I have an extended selection of outfits, and props to create the aesthetic that you see on my web site but please feel free to bring different options. For your family portrait please focus on bringing a few matching or harmonizing tops. For example, you and your partner can be wearing dark sweaters, white shirts, or pastel t-shirts. Please refer to the portfolio for inspiration!

Can parents, siblings, family members or pets be included in the session?

Yes, parents, siblings, family members or pets can be included in the session, when you book your session please add the “Family add on” to your Package.

What if I need to cancel or reschedule?

Your appointment can be rescheduled without charge up to 48h before the shoot. The deposit is fully refundable within a week prior to the shoot.

 

What is the difference between Basic Retouching and Artistically Retouched images?

You will receive all the photos taken during your photo shoot, I will edit out the blinks, blurs, and obvious ‘in-between shots’ that sometimes come with my style of direction. All the images in this selection will be treated with a Basic Retouching, they are cropped, color corrected and ready to print.

Each package comes with a fixed number of artistically retouched images. I can also retouch extra photographs for $25 per image. I like the retouching to look absolutely natural. 

Good retouching is imperceivable. My retouching style retains skin texture while keeping shading and highlights natural. I will remove blemishes, smooth out wrinkles, and dark circles. Furthermore, I will be happy on request to hide double chins and extra weight, as well as whiten teeth or improve the look of your hair by removing frizzy hairs and improving the overall appearance of your hair. I strive to make you look your absolute best while still looking like yourself.

Where will the sessions take place?

As you book your session please choose your preferred location between Brooklyn and Manhattan.

 

When will I receive my digital images and my prints?

Within 2 weeks after the shoot, you will receive a download link with the photographs from our session. You will receive your prints in 30 days. Rush delivery is available upon request.
