I offer three collections in my newborn photography sessions. The first one, described here, is a shorter version of a full session–a “mini” of sorts (though it’s still an hour!). After that, I offer the You Are My Sunshine Collection. This session usually is about two hours at most–if there are siblings or family shots, sometimes we do go longer depending on if the baby needs to eat or if we need to work through getting things to run smoothly with a sibling. I typically aim for about five different setups with this session. Some are with props, some are on a plain backdrop (as the two images directly above this paragraph show). For this session, the baby is not wrapped the entire session, but still will be for certain poses. Also, if the baby is having a bit of a hard time being content while not wrapped up, and it’s difficult for me to work through poses with them, then we will definitely do more wrapped than unwrapped so that I can still get you a good variety during your session.
As with my other collection, I talk through the color preferences with parents ahead of time. I always setup my studio the day before I have a session so that I can take my time selecting all of the layering pieces, wraps, props and little headbands/hats that I will be using for the session. And then on the morning of I can make any last minute changes as I feel are necessary after looking at everything a second time. I like to pair a lot of different textures within my setups for a layered but cohesive look that is visually appealing. For this collection, I have a little more freedom with adding a setup that might have a seasonal theme–springtime, fall, Christmas, etc. Typically I don’t do these type of setups with the Star Light, Star Bright Collection because I only aim to do a couple of setups for those and typically I try to keep those both classic and timeless.
