New-ish Ideas | Chicago Newborn Photographer

Not much going on over here, you guys. I wish I had exciting news for you but alas I’m coming up empty. We are in the “slower” months of the business, which is funny because its not really slow. Babies are born all year round so it keeps me busy. And I love it. Obviously. The newborns keep coming into my newborn studio 🙂

Okay, maybe there is a little news…Not really news worthy though. I am starting plans to build a new backdrop for the studio. My husband and I have talked about creating a second backdrop thats made of white planks. Its important for me to have a variety of looks, but not too diverse. I want people to see my work and know it was from me. So I don’t want a bunch of different backdrops, but I do want a couple of different looks for the studio. So we are hoping to buy older planks to paint white. So excited about it! We just need to find a lumber yard to buy old barn wood from and then paint it. And thats it!

The other thing I want to start working on, is another package available for clients to purchase for newborn sessions. I love the idea of B&W pictures. I will start a full portfolio on newborn photos before I add this to the list of packages. Very excited about this as well.

One more thing thats on the back burner to all of above… I want to start two more different packages…One thats a more natural posed newborn session, where I lay the newborn down on a neutral blanket and then I let the newborns almost pose themselves in their cute little natural ways. And the other is a travel session, where I do more of a lifestyle newborn scene with the newborn in their own PJs or onesie…and photograph them in their nursery. I love both of these looks and I want to start incorporating them into my sessions.

I have a lot to think about.

So yeah, its “slower” around here, but its good because it gives me time to think about what I want to focus on before spring hits and then I’m outside until fall. haha.
