Something Old, Something New | Photographer Fayetteville NC

Newborn Sessions include all the props and accessories needed to create the unique and timeless looks you see on our website and Facebook page. Sometimes families bring items they want to incorporate. While nothing extra is ever needed, we do recommend that you choose carefully to ensure the accessory doesn’t distract from the baby. Large stuffed animals, cartoon character outfits, and movie themed items make the image about the ‘stuff’ and less about the ‘new baby.’ In 20 years you might look back and wonder why on earth any of that stuff was important to you. This is why we love heirloom items. They have a history and a story to tell and they add a legacy to the portraits. Below are examples of a wonderful use of heirloom items from one of our sessions.

The baby bonnet, with intricate detail, was hand made as a gift for her Grandmother as a newborn. The craftsmanship is stunning. It has been stored carefully for many decades. We were able to pull together other existing accessories from our prop closet to coordinate beautifully. What a treasure to have a multigenerational piece documented at such a precious time of life. We also included a newly crafted pair of booties. These were made especially for her by a close family friend. These two items gave our Newborn Session something old, and something new, to add interest and uniqueness to her session. Every time these portraits are shared the stories will be told about the heirloom pieces that were included and why they mean so much to this family.

We hope this inspires you to include meaningful things in all of your future portrait sessions!
