    is that towels in #1 ???!!! I've never seen that! But I really like the idea. At first I was like, "towels? really?" but the more I looked...the more it seemed to give the picture some more interest. (like it needed more help with an adorable baby boy)

    A lot of parents love putting their brand new babies in jeans for pictures. I'm not a big fan of it because you *want* them to look like a baby and jeans don't give the impression of *baby*. 6 is my favorite.

    I got the towel idea online somewhere, and now it is my most asked for set! I think I want some fluffier towels, though, these aren't as soft and fluffy as I want . . .

    I agree with you, my favorites for babies are the naked shots, or even just in a little onesie where you can see all their features. Outfits like their religious dresses (christening, blessing . . .) are fine, because they have meaning, plus they are usually quite ornate - almost wedding dress style!

    If you don't mind me asking ... do you shoot against black background or is it PP ? Do you use strobes or maybe continuous ?
    I love these portraits.
    Thanks

    I do these against a black background. I have an old bean bag chair that I drape black fabric over. This holds the baby without looking like the baby is flat on his/her back. I then selectively burn the portrait in photoshop.

    I use 3 continuous lights. 2 with umbrellas, and one with a large softbox.

    Thanks for looking!
