I encourage clients to choose wraps or backdrops for newborn photos that hold some sort of significance. Before Maddie arrived, her mama posted a photo of a nursery wall hanging she had created using handkerchiefs from the soon-to-be-baby's great-grandparents and dear family friends. I texted her right away to ask if we could use it as a backdrop for the in-home lifestyle session we had planned. She loved the idea.
I hope these portraits will remind Maddie's family not only of the preciously fleeting first days of Maddie's life, but also of the special people represented in the squares surrounding her.
