I have my first real newborn shoot this coming weekend. My "babies" are now nearly 3 1/2 and 5 1/2 so it's been a while! I have lots of props for older children but nothing for tiny infants. Mom and Dad want black and white so I figure we do ones of them holding the baby, baby laying in their arms, kissing the baby etc. I'm sure I'll do the traditional close up of hands, feets, etc as well. I'll plan to bring my black paper backdrop and one cloth one. One thing I have seen is to get a cloth diaper and but it under the baby, lay him on top and get the blackmail nude photo for embarassement later when future girlfriends come over :mrgreen: Other than that I don't have any great ideas for shooting the baby by himself (they want to do birth announcements). Any other suggestions? The baby is about 3 weeks old.
