We opted out for expensive hospital photos, especially since Giuliana had jaundice and spent 24 hours in phototherapy leaving her with little white rings around her eyes. We own a Sony Alpha a6000 camera which takes awesome quality photos so I figured, we can shoot newborn photos at home. With the help of a few props and a free photo editing app – I’d say I did pretty well.
The white faux fur throw that Giuliana is laying on is only $12.99 from Ikea and can be found here. We used a Boppy Newborn Lounger to prop her up, a lot of natural light, and made sure the room we shot the photos in was decently warm for baby to be extremely comfortable.
Last but not least, we used super adorable baby accessories handmade by Princess Baby Boutique. My dear friend Amanda is so talented and creative with making all kinds of baby accessories for both girls and boys – I highly recommend checking out her Facebook or website for a child of just about any age. Also, ALL of her products are so individually unique and extremely affordable!
