I hope you enjoy my blog! Take a look around and message me so we can start planning your amazing session!
Every newborn session I do is completely customized and unique for each baby. I love taking the time to create a new set up for each session. I am always on the look for something different. So when one of my last clients said they wanted to incorporate some stuffed animals, I was excited. When I found out that they were stuffed animals from when THEY were babies, I was ecstatic!
This is one of my favorite images to this day. I love how alert he is and just staring straight at me, family heirlooms tucked along side of him. I love the imagery it shows. The love of a family to preserve the stuffed animals. It shows that they were carefully protected throughout the years until they were lovingly passed on. This completely showcases how using a family heirloom can change the image! I’ve used this set up before, but this image is so unique and special.
When Nolan’s momma said that she wanted to use some antlers from their personal collection, I was so intrigued and excited to create something! This was so cool to work on. (Not going to lie, also more than a little difficult to get the antlers to entwine perfectly to form a circle!) It’s so perfect. Incredibly rustic and totally unique, and fits right in as a large canvas on the walls of their home.
So when you’re searching through my portfolio, keep this in mind. I have everything you will need for a beautiful gallery. All the wraps, headbands and props. But, a stuffed animal to snuggle close? A bonnet that was once worn by a loved one that maybe has passed on? Those are the things that will MAKE your artwork. Your session should also be about YOU. It should be about your family. Your heirlooms.
