I thought I might share a bit of the preperation that goes into a newborn shoot with you. I get super excited, I LOVE newborn shoots. They are the most time consuming work I do and physically and mentally exhausting, but I love them! I have been planning this one for a while, but really got into the planning last week when my client told me she had given birth to two healthy baby boys . I usually plan on 3 different main props for newborn and work around that, so for these two babies I have planned 1) a superhero themed prop (watch out for the pics). 2) a halloween themed setting. and 3) a basket to place them both in.The main thing is to ensure that the babies are safe and warm, and to try make this shoot different to the other shoots I have done of other newborns.
I spent the week looking at all my favorite haunts for props. Charity shops, resale shops, Jo-annes, TK Maxx, etc and I brought three items.
