I also used a few vintage style props I'd gotten from various places such as Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I love the basket with the "No 1" on it since she's our first baby. ;)
She cooperated for about five minutes at a time, before she'd start fussing...which inevitably would lead to all-out crying. Luckily I was able to take a few good shots before that happened.
I think this one is my favorite, with the slight smile on her face...
I also ordered some cheese cloth in various colors from That Unique Bowtique. I've seen so many cute pictures on Etsy of newborns wrapped in such cloth like a cocoon - unfortunately I wasn't quite sure how to mimic that look. For those that are interested, my dad recently sent me a link to this blog, Newborn Posing, on which you can purchase a video tutorial showing how to get the desired look. Although I didn't have this beforehand, I got one decent photo by just wrapping it around her body.
Lastly, I got a beautiful fur prop in an ivory color to match the rest of the neutral color scheme from EcoStreet. Addie was a little more interested in eating the fur than posing for her mama. ;)
I took a few more photos on our couch using a blanket my mom recently gave us. It is incredibly soft and comfy - definitely my new favorite blanket to curl up with. I love how Addie's hands frame her face in these - she looks angelic. Our sweet little angel.
Sweet baby toes!!
I love the rustic, neutral colors in these. I'm happy with the way they turned out. And the great thing is, I have all of the props and backdrops for future photo shoots of our pretty little Addie. :)
