CHOOSING PROPS

When choosing props I always consider various things. To begin prop must be SAFE FOR BABY been this the most important point. They must be stable, use excluvesily for newborn session and have the correct measure for baby to fit.  I always bear in mind they are produce at smoke and pet free homes as I never know if my clients may be allergic. 

Most of the colors are neutral colors. I love grey, blues, green, creams, browns and off white for boys as well as mint, pink, purples and lilac for girls.

All wood box, buckets, wood nest, need to be well done and no nails can be seen, of course when preparing the set ups I always  layer up so baby doesn't have direct contact with the props, is comfy and safe. I also have rustic trays, fabric nest, lovely dreamweaver bowl and crochet nest. My beautiful wood floor backgrounds give the final touch together with the headbands or bonnets which are delicate and unique.

I will write soon a post about baby safety when posing and so many shoot which are compose, but for now I like to show just some of the props I have...

SIBLINGS IN NEWBORN SESSIONS

Newborn sessions are all about the new baby, but is also about the new family. When photographing newborn I always take the time to make beautiful photos of the whole family and photos of the siblings. Of course is a special time for that big brother or big sister which the world have totally change for them. So with patience and some tricks I get those magical pictures for their parents. 

But how to go ahead with a newborn session when toddlers are running around, shouting and maybe crying... when baby needs to sleep and mom to be relax so she can enjoy the session. Well it can be tough that's why before I start I have those little hands helping me, they love to be helpers! and when photo shoot begins they are the first ones to start doing the sibling pictures and follow later with the family ones. This way they are free to go and play, I can start with the baby and what is most important parents already got their precious family in a picture!
