I recently did a photo session with our two month old...I don't have a ton of experience with studio type setups and backgrounds, but I thought I would show you what I did to fake it a bit!
I started by picking my props...I'm realizing I am not a huge fan of lots of "extras" in the photos...I just want to capture my kiddo's personalities in a interesting way. In this case I embraced my obsession with everything vintage! I chose a chalkboard...I know, maybe chalkboards are becoming a bit over done? I don't think quite yet, and who cares, if I like it, that's all that matters, right? You may remember this chalkboard from one of my Yard Sale Posts? It cost me a whopping $1! I have had it hanging in my entry way, not getting much attention, for a couple months now. The cool thing it is two sided, one side has the alphabet and the other is just a plain chalkboard.
Not bad for an impromptu -oh, no! I better take some photos because this kid is already 2 months old!!!- photo session!
Haha...Elle was mommy's little assistant- she was very concerned that he had a wet diaper- we can't have that in pictures now can we!
Here is a comparison of his newborn/2 month pics!
Babies grow way to fast!
