What packages do you recommend for Maternity / Newborn sessions?
The Olive Package is recommended for portrait sessions such as those. Although, if you would like both a maternity and newborn session, the Jasmine package would be perfect for you!
Can my hubby/other children join the maternity/newborn session?
Yes, definitely! In fact, we encourage it!
I’m quite shy. Can I request for a female photographer for my intimate maternity shoot?
Yes, of course. We have woman photographers that can do your session!
What happens during a newborn session? Do you have props?
Our newborn photography style is more lifestyle rather than staged. We’ll be shooting more candid moments of mommy, daddy and baby/ies cuddling and playing during the session. We encourage the use of your personal items (blanket, ultrasound, first socks etc) during the shoot to make for a more sentimental photograph. We do however have choice cloths and coloured backgrounds too, just let us know if you’d like to use them.
Tell me more about the First Moments package.
This is a short session, just about an hour, held within the first 48 hours of your newborn baby. We will visit you in the hospital and shoot a few moments of your first day with him/her; from the tiny details, like her little toes and beautiful eyes, to your first family photo! If you have other children, we will also take their photo as a new big sister or brother. We can also take their photo with the grandparents if they’re around. If it happens that it’s time for baby’s first bath, we can document that too! Here’s a sample of a First Moments session.
Due dates aren’t exact, how do I book you for a First Moments package?
As with all our packages, we will require a downpayment and a few information, like your due date, of course! Also, you will need to keep us updated as your due date gets closer. Message us twice: FIRST, when you start labor, so we can prepare, and SECOND, when you’re roomed in with your baby already, so you can tell us what room you’re in and we can agree on a time for the visit. Generally, daytime is ideal, especially if your room has windows with lots of sunshine coming in.
I’d like a smash the cake session for my baby, what package does that fall under?
Any of our portrait packages would be fitting for your session.
What is Digital Delivery?
Your photos will be uploaded into a cloud storage (dropbox), which we’ll then share to you via email, so you can download them where ever you are.
Do you do home service?
Yes, we can do your shoot in your home for no additional charge, as long as it is within Metro Manila. For shoots outside the Metro, additional rates apply. Please email us your location and we will provide you with a quotation.
What’s included in the studio upgrade?
This includes use of Graey Studio for a maximum of 4 hours (including pre shoot preparations), use of studio’s wooden benches, and use of available coloured backgrounds. You can email us about the available colors, as these change from time to time.
Where is Graey Studio? Is there parking nearby?
Graey Studio is located in Unit 513 First United Building, Escolta Street, Manila. (waze: “Graey Studio” or “First United Building”). Street parking is available. There is also a parking lot right beside BDO before you reach the building. Please secure your cars and belongings as we are not liable for any loss or damages to your property.
What if I want a different studio?
Yes, we can shoot in other studios. But, of course, you’ll need to make the arrangements with the studio yourself. Nonetheless, just let us know where you want the shoot to happen and we’ll be there!
Do you do out of the country portraits?
Yes, we occasionally open shoots in other countries, like Japan, Australia or the U.S. You can email to ask us where we are heading to next!
