Bringing in your own props can make the images from your sitting truly yours. Think outside the box...or basket and choose an item that reflects your family’s passions and personalities. During your sitting there is usually time for 2-3 setups and or looks. I suggest planning on having one formal look and then one that is a reflection of your family. If you have small children let them pick out their outfit or bring a favorite toy. Giving them this responsibility and choice usually creates a sitting that is relaxing, which always produces great images of your little ones. The sitting should be fun and not a chore...this is the best way to achieve images that you will proudly display in your home for many years to come.
