It can be difficult to know what you want in your newborn photos and it can also be an overwhelming market. Whilst your photographer might be hugely experienced, new mums often want to have accessories which they themselves have chosen out for the photo shoot. These will further personalise your photos and make them more memorable for years to come. To develop your creative eye, you should look on the internet and in books (which can be borrowed from your library or bought in a book store) at pictures which others have done. There are a number of famous newborn photographers who have made their name in the market and you will be able to find them easily.
1. Mom and Dad
The most important people in your child’s life is going to be you and your partner. You will fend for your child, feed your child and protect your child without question or thought. Why not have these two people in the photo, too? If you would like to have the presence of the parents but not you actually included in it, think about symbols of you which could be present in the picture, for example your wedding rings or an item of importance in the background.
