Being a newborn photographer in Boise Idaho is so much more involved than I thought it would be. When I first started photographing newborns I purchased props and accessories that I liked. During the sessions I would use the things that I wanted. After the session I would go through the pictures, pick the ones I liked, edit the pictures, and then burn them to a CD for my clients. Newborn photograph was just starting out back then and it was so hard to find props and backdrops. Things have changed so much in the last 11 years.

Design Process for Newborn Sessions

When I first started out I had a friend that lived in Los Angeles that was also a newborn photographer. She would go down to the LA fabric district and find us the most amazing fabric that we used for newborn backdrops. Whatever was available for a decent price is what we got. Having a limited amount of colors and access to fabric limited what I could do for my sessions. Now I have several websites that I order fabric backdrops from. I can even search by color and get exactly what I want.

When you book a newborn session with me, we have a design consult. We go over colors, backdrops, accessories, and poses that you would like to see for your session. Each newborn session is unique as each mom and dad never pick exactly the same thing. If you are wanting to specific color I am able to purchase what we are needing. I also have access to so many amazing prop shops that hand make so many adorable things. The design session is one of my favorite parts of the newborn photography process.
