Someone I go to Bible study with booked six photo sessions with me as her gift to her niece. (Best gift ever if I do say so myself!) We did the pregnancy pictures not too long ago and just last week I got to photograph baby Jadyn at just six days old.
I think newborn sessions could quickly become a favorite for me! The babies are always so tiny and cute and awesome. And I love the adorable pictures we end up with. :)
So... I'm an amateur photographer. I still call it my hobby and not my job or profession... because it's not. It's a hobby. I set up in my living room with blankets and things I've collected along the way... which isn't much. I also like to tell the mom to bring along anything special she would like to use.
I'll share about some of the stuff we used because you'll probably find it's things that you have around the house too or can find cheap.
In these first two we used a blanket that was made by someone for the baby...
The basket below was maybe $2 from a thrift store and they wanted to use the butterfly wings...
I crocheted the soft blanket that fills the basket.
For the following pictures I have a beanbag under the blankets.
The pink and white polka dot is just a piece of fleece I bought from the craft store. I need to buy more. I think it's on great sale today but I don't know if I want to deal with all the people!
(One of my favorites!)
I'll get to see Jadyn again around 3 months... and then 6 and 9 and one year. :)
