Photography Tip


Ready to add a photo of your precious bundle of joy to the family tree? Here’s a good tip: when you’re taking portrait-style shots, clear out the clutter and opt for a neutral, basic background. You can place the baby on a soft white or cream sheet or blanket draped over his boppy pillow or laid out on a bed. Learn more on our article on how to photograph babies.
