Ever so often, I meet a new mom with a vision. Layla’s mom knew exactly what she wanted to capture during her daughter’s newborn photography session at their home in the Greenville area. Simple, classic family portraits that focus on the new bond between Layla and her parents was the focus at the beginning. The same theme continued as I posed her with elegant wraps and headbands for her portraits. Though I often prefer simple set ups, I must admit that my favorite portraits with props recently occurred at this newborn session as well. Layla’s father owns a travel company; therefore, we incorporated travel items from their home along with a suitcase I brought from my prop closet to complete the set up. We also used my bed prop along with the ribbon banner Layla’s mom purchased off of Etsy for the final shot. The chandelier in the formal dining room completed the look. I placed Layla’s bed on the table to create the wood floor reflection while allowing her to be closer under the chandelier.
