CHICAGO LIFESTYLE NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER: MELISSA MARIE PHOTOGRAPHY: TEDDY
Stop! No need to empty your fruit bowl. We will not be placing your baby in it during their newborn session. Back in the day, when I first was doing newborn photos (and mostly hating it) I had a full on newborn session suitcase; filled with backdrops, baskets, blankets, ribbons, you name it. The more I gravitated and created what was authentic, the more and more I've become obsessed with newborn sessions. Sip that cold coffee. (Goodness knows you need it!) Curl up on your couch. Meander throughout your place. One of the things I mentioned in my info I send as parents prep for the session is that it's less about props and posing, and more about a day in the life of your family. What an unbelievable gift. A time-capsule of photos that forever will hold how special this time in life is.
