Styling Your Session Part 2: Newborn Photography with Props


Did you know that with “Little Crumpets Photography” your newborn photography session is completely tailored to you? If you prefer natural images you are welcome to select those or if you like crazy and out there prop images, we can plan your vision together! When styling a session I ask for your favourite colours from a long list of colours that I have with props in every colour! That way if you hate girls in pink or want something unique, we can plan it perfectly to your vision. You are also welcome to select images from my website portfolio, my Instagram or my Facebook page that you love and would like me to recreate for you!


“Part 2” is all about the prop portion of your session. In your session I aim to do about 5-8 different set ups depending on how baby feels. In these I do about half with prop set ups. I love prop set ups because they are actually easier for baby to do than the natural images. Baby adores being swaddled as they have been curled up in the womb for 9 months and they feel safe doing this during a session. I start with swaddled set ups as I find it easier to get a greater variety while keeping baby very snug and happy!


What are props? Props are anything that we use with baby like crates, buckets, bowls, wraps, hats, teddy bears, blankets etc. In each session I like to do a crate pose and a bucket pose as I feel these are super cute and show just how tiny baby is in those first few weeks! I have such a wide variety of props that you are welcome to choose from a long list of colours that I provide, I have almost every colour to offer you!

Newborns are best photographed from 5-14 days old due to them being more awake and less-curly that when they are fresh newborns. It is best to book your session around 20 weeks pregnant as my calendar does fill very quickly. The reason I take a limited amount of newborns per month is due to needing to be flexible for their due dates. We book for your approximate due date month and I have you contact me within 48 hours of giving birth to schedule in our exact session date. It is important to book prior to giving birth however so that I can save space in your due date month!  Email me at to secure your newborn session today!
