We’d like to welcome Becca from Rebecca Crosby Photography sharing her experience in newborn baby photography. She recently had the opportunity to photograph these adorable newborn twins and is here to share her tips on choosing the styling before you take your photos.

I love taking newborn photos, getting to meet these sweet babies that are just days old is such a privilege. Like most professionals, I have a slew of props, backdrops, bowls, and baskets I utilize in newborn photos and have a plan for what I want for each photo’s composition– occasionally derailed by the plans of tiny people, but that’s part of the fun ;)

I love when my clients have a special item they want photographed or a blanket from a loved one/when they were a baby. I always finish my shoots by asking, “Is there anything you were thinking of or have seen on Pinterest that we didn’t capture today?” You can imagine my excitement when Nichole told me her plans to have some adorable hats, blankets, and ideas for her twin daughter’s newborn photos.

She had picked her favorite twin announcement from Tiny Prints and we looked at it before the shoot so that I could photograph for the exact orientation/theme of the card. Can I just say this is genius!! It made things a breeze for both of us.

So often we fall in love with announcements, birthday cards, or holiday cards that do not fit our family photos. You have the perfect horizontal newborn shot? Great. I bet your favorite announcement is one that utilizes 3 vertical shots. There are SO many cute options on Tiny Prints, it makes more sense to browse and decide while you’re pregnant when you still have sanity time.

Another fabulous perk? I consistently get asked as a photographer to send people 5 of their best images so they can order senior graduation announcements, save the dates, newborn announcements, etc. and this took the guess work out of it. I knew exactly what shot was needed before my typical turn-around time on edits. Dealing with the chaos of a newborn is exciting enough: do yourself the service of finding that perfect announcement and have your photos shot to fit it!!

I was pleased with the options Tiny Prints offered because it allowed us to create something uniquely Becca and Reese!

Something that made the girls’ announcement even more special was the personalized postage!

The stamps added a special treat for their family and friends right out of the mailbox!

I love being able to capture images that my clients want to share with their friends and family!! I will certainly be encouraging everyone to pick out their announcement, invitation, or Christmas card when they email me to set up those sessions so that we can make the photos fit the perfect unique card for them!

Princess Fruit Wands DIY

What more fun to add to a princess party than fruit wands? I believe every princess needs her own wand so the minute I saw the fun Princess Collection I knew I had to make them. They are super easy to put together and everyone will love them. Even the adults HA! Are you ready for this? Let’s go!

Supplies

  • Watermelon
  • Blueberries
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Cookie cutters

Directions:

  1. Cut out slices of watermelon, thick enough for you to create shapes using your cookie cutters.
  2. Once you have a few shapes ready, slide your fruit on your skewers alternating the fruit as you wish. That’s it! I told you these were easy!

The fun thing about these is that the possibilities are endless when it comes to mixing both shapes and fruit. Cannot wait to make them using pineapple and strawberries next. I just loved the mix of “purple” and “pink” for this round.

What do you think? Will these be making an appearance at your next Princess party?
