Laurence’s mum and dad came to their newborn photo session very well prepared – they brought along lots of props and ideas and they were all absolutely gorgeous! Now, you don’t need to bring along anything at all apart from your baby and usual baby bag but you’re always welcome to.  It really helps to personalise your session and it’s a great way to create the perfect birth announcement to introduce the world to your new arrival.

Of course it does need some advance planning which is probably the last thing on your mind when you get home from the hospital.  Planning your birth announcement image though is the perfect and fun way to while away the waiting time at the end of your pregnancy and it also means you have time to order in anything you need – the personalised wooden cubes that Laurence is featured with in his birth announcement image are a great example of this.  Some items that you might want to include in your photo session are things you might receive after your baby is born, new teddies and soft toys or personalised blankets. All of these are brilliant additions to your photo shoot and will help to preserve those fleeting memories of your newborn days.
