Hello! Happy New Year and Happy New Beginnings!
The new year brings new possibilities, adventures, happiness and so does that beautiful moment when you find out you are about to have a baby! Whether this is your first baby or your a seasoned Momma waiting for your new arrival, this blog post is for you!
At my studio, I have this little corner I lovingly call my "Newborn Nook." In this little nook, there is a darling distressed and chalk painted hutch that holds all the coziest blankets, soft colored backdrops, pretty posing pillows and much more. On the wall next to the milky colored hutch is a ladder filled with soft and stretchy wraps in almost every color to swaddle your sweet little baby. On the side of the hutch and also the shelf next to the hutch is adorable baby headbands and tiebacks. Many that you are able to see in the pictures are my own personal creations! I love to make things that are unique and different.
Another item in my Newborn Nook area, is a posing pillow and newborn stand to create dreamy and sweet little portraits of your baby. My newborn stand is also unique, it is something my husband made and designed himself. This sturdy stand has many great features, one of which is that it is able to be turned or moved, without disrupting baby, to be able to capture the best light for your baby's perfect portraits. Natural light is best and typically my studio is full of warm and beautiful light; however, sometimes a bit of help is needed when it is cloudy or dark outside. I do have a nice lighting setup to help during those times.
Because I always strive to be a bit different and aim for more natural and simplistic posing, I do have charming little baby beds with a variety of cute bedspreads, blankets and rugs. Besides the baby beds, I do have an adorable baby papasan chair and I'm currently working with a local crochet artisan to create a dreamy baby couch! Texture is always a good idea to add in portraits and we can use flowers, sprigs of garland, wooly stars, hearts or anything that we dream up! Truly, the possibilities are endless!
Finally, as I said above, I love to be unique and different. I like to achieve this by planning out ideas and creating setups that are fun, sweet and on the adventurous side. I am always happy to work your ideas into your newborn session. Your thoughts and inspiration are always welcome! In fact, when ideas are shared it is exciting for me! I encourage bringing your own items to enhance your session experience. I appreciate and treasure the opportunity to work together to create the most lovely portraits that you will lovingly cherish for years to come!
