How I plan a newborn session: When I first started newborn photography, I didn’t have a studio. I did posed newborn photography in my clients home for 5 years…that’s right 5 years. While my SUV was always stuffed to the brim, I always made sure everything was planned out, so I could pack as “light” […]
