To prop....or not?
I know I've said this before - but when you are choosing your newborn photographer have a good look through their portfolio to decide whether you like their particular style. Do you want props or just straight forward images of your gorgeous little one? Never be afraid to call your chosen photographer and discuss what you do and don't like so you are both singing from the same hymn sheet on the day of the session. I personally like to use props to a certain extent, but not to a level where your eye is drawn away from the rightful star of the show, and I will always listen to what mum and dad want, no matter how keen I might be to use a particular prop! I am very lucky to have a wonderful mum who is a wiz with a pair of knitting needles (a gift I unfortunately lack!) and she supplies me with the most wonderful hats and knitted props. This gorgeous little girl who visited my studio today was the perfect model for me - 8 days new and still lovely and sleepy so, with mum's blessing - I had a great time!
