I have read so much about what you need to take newborn photos and how to take them that I really had to try to control what I needed to go out and buy.
I started out on Amazon purchasing a couple of newborn wraps one in gray and one in navy blue. Of course we needed a bean bag chair so we ordered that right up too. I also needed one of those cute outfits with just the pants and the hat for him.
Then my daughter and I along with the kids headed over to Marshall’s. We found a couple of really nice blankets to use along with many items to put him into. I ended up spending about $150 there.
So keep in mind I already owned my camera and lenses as well as a backdrop stand. I’ve also had about 20 months since my attempt with my first granddaughter to read everything I could about photography (lighting, posing etc.) and learning how to use editing software.
Now to put everything I have learned to practice!
