A friend of mine, gifted a Newborn Session to her son and daughter-in-law for their first little girl. Mama and Dad were big Star Wars fans as well as Disney. I didn’t get a chance to discuss plans with Mama ahead of time, but knew about their interests. I had quite a few ideas and props ready to go.
When the family showed up, Mama had a zillion great ideas and props of her own. She had even brought her wedding dress.
We immediately got to work, with eight day old, baby M wide awake and ready to check everything out, we started with the Princess Leia set up. My daughter made me the bun hat and I got a part of my birthday gift early with the Chewbacca Itty Bitty doll (from Hallmark.)
After that set up, little M ate some more, changed into her next outfit and passed out.
With all the props Mama brought to the session, we ended up skipping the Disney side of things. Maybe we’ll plant that in for the six month session :)
If you are hoping for Newborn portraits, please contact me to make an appointment. I really like to start planning months in advance. Also, I only take on a limited number of Newborn sessions, so when you get to your second trimester, it would be a great time to reserve your spot!
