During your pre-shoot consultation we will discuss many things; among them, we will talk about newborn photo props. Every newborn session has, at least, two components. Beanbag poses and a minimum of one prop. Some sessions may include features with family or additional props, but for now, I want to focus on the different types of props and the poses that come with them.
Over the years, I have collected many custom and unique props, and in some cases I have even made some specifically for use with newborns during a photo shoot.
Today's focus is the "Baby Bucket" pose.
In this pose, the baby is placed forward facing into a deep prop. This prop requires an assistant, and usually the parent is asked to stand close by for safety. This pose is only possible with a very sleepy baby and not all baby's will allow this pose.
