Melrose Newborn Portraits :: Mr. R

Mr. R’s Newborn Portraits with Props :: Melrose MA Photographer

Melrose Newborn photos

When Mr. R’s big sister Miss R was a newborn, she and her family came to my studio for a portrait session full of whimsy and props. I loved that Andover newborn session so much! So I was extra excited to have them back in my studio for baby brother’s session. Before any session I send out a questionnaire to go over styling, poses, props and more. For this Melrose newborn portraits session I was thrilled to hear that mom and dad definitely wanted to include some props. Each parent had a must have in terms of props. For dad, it was Mr. R on the stacks of luggage. For mama, it was the burlap crescent moon. These are two of my favorites, and I love how they came out!

Choosing Props for Baby Photos

I love that these Melrose newborn portraits were full of the same whimsy and fun that big sister’s had. While we still kept the actual props used unique to baby boy. One of the greatest things about photographing numerous babies in the same family is the ability to create this sense of cohesion across multiple sessions! This session had a great blend of rustic, vintage, and unique props. The perfect inspiration for all of your newborn portrait prop desires!

Mr. R’s grandmother came along to the session. She hopped into a few photos, helped out behind the scenes, and then took big sister so that she didn’t have to sit in the studio for the whole session! When it comes to including big siblings I always recommend having them leave once the family and sibling photos are done if at all possible.
