Ok so here we go… 3 of my favorite things that I can’t live without…
1. Sheep skin rugs.
They are so versatile, I use it pretty much in all the session, both newborns and children. They make for a great basket filler and background. Babies love to snuggle into a warm fuzzy sheep skin and children loves the texture and they way it feels. I have them in pretty much any color and sometimes I even stack them to have a more textures feel.
No matter how fussy a baby can be, a cocoon is a session saver! As soon as the baby slips inside a cocoon goes to sleep or just stay in there quiet and I can shoot away!
3. Ring Light
This one I use for each single session, from newborns to adults to products photography… a Ring Light! This light goes around the lens and gives me that signature catchlight that my portraits are very well known for! I received one to test a couple years ago and now I cannot live without it, totally worth the money!
