Outdoor Themes for Sitting babies
We are grateful to you for considering us to capture the memories of your little ones. We believe that we are very lucky that we get to deal with cutest little babies as a part of our work and hence we give our best to capture the moments that you will cherish for lifetime. We are blessed to have done over 3500 baby shoots and have been consistently listed among the best baby photographers in Bangalore because we believe in providing the highest quality of photographs along with maintaining the other necessary checks.
Green color is always pleasing to the eyes but it also have a medicinal effect on the eyes. What can be more pleasing when you can see a baby sitting in natural backgrounds?
When it comes to outdoor shoots, we always prefer the greener backdrops rather than any buildings until or unless that building is actually a need of the photograph.
We are doing Outdoor Shoots at our private garden. Shoots can be done at your location as well but charges would be extra for that.
The Natural feel of the Outdoor shoots may look very fascinating but it also comes along with its own disadvantages. Lighting is a very important part of photography and usually lighting is good early in the morning and it becomes extremely harsh when sun comes out.
Why Parul and Ankur Kaushal Photography?
- We have been trend setters in setting up new themes and we are always eager to implement new ideas if you have any.
- We use full frame cameras with high end lenses.
- Despite the fact that we have a large number of props and themes, our focus still remains to capture the babies in the best possible way and you will find the babies smiling in most of our final pics.
- We have the largest baby photography studio in bangalore with the extra advantage of having a changing/feeding room, pantry etc in the studio. We will also provide baby toiletries like baby shampoo/body wash, lotion, powder, baby wipes, towel etc in case if bathing is required after a cake smashing shoot.
- We have a good experience in photo editing and hence that is a very important part of our workflow. We use large screen IPS panel displays for editing with spyder 5 pro for monitor calibration thus improving the tone of the colors.
- Our studio premises and all the props are sanitized as per WHO guidelines after every shoot. Please check our website for details.Apart from that, we give stress on the safety of the baby during the shoots. If the baby is moving a lot or is unstable, we will deploy one person specifically to guard and protect the baby from falling down and getting hurt. Please click here for details on our covid19 guidelines.
- We have our own private garden for the outdoor shoots.
The Process for the Photoshoots:
- Payments: We take 50% of the total amount as the booking charges. Booking will be confirmed only when the payment is made. The amount needs to be deposited into our bank account. Remaining amount needs to be paid after the shoot is completed.
IMPORTANT : Once the time slot for the shoot is finalized and we have shared the account details, payment is required to be made within 6 hours and if not made, that slot will be considered as open for other clients. We suggest you to use IMPS as the payment method to avoid delays, for example in case of bank holidays.
- Pre-shoot Planning:
The process starts form shoot planning in which we discuss the details like dresses, themes etc. Usually, the pre-shoot planning will freeze at-least 2 days before the shoot. The discussions will be done on phone and usually that is enough but if you need to meet us, please feel free to come. Please note that pre-shoot planning is a must and we do not take any shoot without planning.
The timings for the shoot shall be discussed in the pre shoot planning. Setting a proper timing is very very important for the shoot to be a success. Best time for the shoot is usually after the babies complete their sleep. Usually they will be awake and active for around 2 hours after the sleep and that is the time we leverage for the shoot. For example, if the baby takes a nap at around 12 noon and wakes up at around 2. In that case you can take the 2 pm slot for the shoot. Suppose if it takes 30 mins to reach till our place, you can start from your home at 1:30 while the baby is sleeping. The best thing to happen is that the baby wakes up just before the shoot. Please do not forget to bring the feed for the baby.
Sometimes, there is no proper sleeping cycle for the baby and sleep timings are erratic. In that case, we suggest you plan the shoot on a weekday because we will usually be more flexible on weekdays as most people want weekend slots.
- The Shoot:
We will provide all the required props apart from helium balloons, cakes or any specific props which are not as per the themes.
We may provide dresses for some themes. We also provide accessories such as ties, bows, suspenders, caps, hats, goggles, specs, headbands, tiaras. We also provide formal shoes fitting around one year old baby boys. For baby girls, we provide tutu dresses and pearl necklaces but color collection is limited. For boys of around one year, we have a few jeans, trousers and shirts which can be used subject to availability.
It is advisable not to bring extended family during the shoot as it causes lots of distraction for the baby. It may not always be true but the success rate of getting good pics is low when there are more people around as the baby keeps looking in all directions and hardly looks at the camera.
We take 3 weeks to edit the photos and we will share the edited and unedited pics together. If you need the unedited pics, you can ask us once you make the full payment and we will share via wetransfer. We will choose the best photos for processing or you can also choose them. Once you have made the selection, we take 3 weeks for processing. If you want the processed photos early, we have a quick-edit offer, where we will provide the edited pics within a week at 10% extra cost but that will be subjected to our availability.
We have categorized the photos into different categories for outdoor shoots:
a. Themes : Theme is a setup which is done to capture the photographs. For example, in a chef theme, fruits , vegetables, utensils etc are placed and the baby is made to wear an apron and a hat to give that feel. Or it may be some decorative setups.
b. Candid Pics : Usually, we have to restrict ourselves to particular props and the setup when theme is chosen. But sometimes, babies may not want to be restricted. So, in candid pics we are not constrained about the setup, props, location or the position in the photos.
c. Water Splash: These are setups in which the baby is made to play with water. The baby may be put into a tub for bath and they play with water naturally.
d. Dreamy shoots : Photos will be given special effects with special lighting techniques and editing. Those will be expensive but look of the photos would be totally different.
