How are we caring for your health (and ours) during COVID-19 

 

This is a fragile time for all of us right now, so we have taken some extra precautions to help protect the health of our customers, staff and myself respectively.

 

Staff obligations:

  • There is a maximum of 3 staff members at the studio, if there is any sign of illness staff members are NOT permitted to work.
  • Hand sanitisers are used before and after all appointments
  • Daily cleaning at the studio is mandatory
  • We welcome all of our customers with a warm smile and a wave, (my customers know that I’m a natural hugger so I had to write this one down!)
  • I (Marie) have self quarantined myself to travel to and from my girls school- home- studio.

Visiting the studio:

  • Only one family is permitted at any one time. (All bookings are by appointment only)
  • If you or a family member feels unwell please contact the studio (02)9418 8703 to reschedule your appointment. All re scheduling fees will be waived.
  • When you arrive a warm smile is all we need, we are truly happy to see you we just can’t express it as we normally would.

Home and location photography sessions:

  • Home sessions may be requested if you wish to have your shoot in the comfort of your own home. Travel fees will be waived at this time if you live 15kms from our studio in Lane Cove. Please contact the studio for further information.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and co operation during this time. We will be open during our regular business hours should you have any questions or concerns.
Warm Regards,
Marie Ramos Photography

Baby Imprints FAQ

1. WHAT IS THE BEST AGE FOR BABY IMPRINTS?
We recommend babies up to 6 weeks old as tiny details in your baby’s hands and feet are more prominent in the newborn stage. However, Baby Imprints can be done at any age and is suitable for toddlers and siblings.
2. HOW DOES THE BABY IMPRINT PROCESS WORK?
Baby Imprints is made up of two appointments. The first is a 1hr portrait session and the second is a 90min portrait viewing where you select the best photograph/s for your Baby Imprint frame. Once you are happy with the design, we will then prepare fresh clay to take your child’s first Baby Imprints.What is the clay made out of?We use a soft natural earthenware clay that is safe to use on delicate newborn skin. Imprinting requires a slight amount of pressure on the hands and or feet and only takes a few seconds for each impression to be made.
3. WHAT TIME OF THE DAY IS BEST TO BOOK IN MY PHOTOSHOOT?
Mornings are best, if your baby has had a feed or a sleep even better! If you are not sure of your baby’s routine that is perfectly fine too, we suggest selecting a time in the morning and we will do our best to ensure that your baby is content and relaxed during your photo shoot.
4. WHAT SHOULD I BRING ON THE DAY OF MY PHOTOSHOOT?
For babies under 6 months old, please bring a plain fluffy blanket, a towel for potty accidents, headbands or bonnets are optional, a spare black t-shirt for dad and/or spare black singlet for mum.
5. WHAT IS THE BABY IMPRINT TILE MADE OF?
We use a soft natural clay to get an accurate imprint of your child’s hands and feet. It is 100% organic and safe on delicate newborn skin.​
6. CAN I USE MY OWN PHOTOGRAPH IN MY BABY IMPRINT FRAME?
No. We take pride in our Baby Imprints and the process involved to achieve the final result. However you can purchase a Baby Imprint frame without photography.
7. WE LIVE OUTSIDE OF SYDNEY, BUT WOULD LOVE TO DO BABY IMPRINTS, WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST WE DO?
We have many customers who travel from interstate and overseas for Baby Imprints. We strongly suggest that at the time of booking, to make a portrait viewing appointment immediately after your photography session so we can do the entire process on the same day.What is the difference between Ceramic Imprints and store bought DIY clay kits?A ceramic is made out of clay and permanently hardened by the heat of a kiln. A professional ceramist/potter is specially trained to work with firing and glazing ceramic tiles/pieces. Our products are built to last, made using the best materials and handcrafted by experts.Air drying clay kits are more commonly used for craft projects
8. WHEN WILL MY BABY IMPRINT FRAME BE READY FOR COLLECTION?
Please allow 4-6 weeks from the date of your order.
