Welcome to the world, Zoya. 17 days new & breathtaking!
Good morning, friends! Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend filled with fun, family and friends. That's never a bad way to spend your leisure! Today, however, I'm ready to work and am excited to share details about the wrapping that's oh so special to me. It's a cornerstone of my newborn portraiture work and I like to tell parents what they may expect. Before we get started, I invite you to take a little look at my Houston Newborn Portrait Studio. It's located near Barker Cypress/290 with easy access to all major highways such as the Northwest Freeway, i-99, and i-10.
Style Number One: Potato Wrap
The first style of cozy newborn wrapping I implement with each and every session is called the potato wrap. This wrap is absolutely precious because baby is snug and sleeps wonderfully here. I spend about 10 minutes perfecting the wrap. Parents always marvel at how round baby is and looks like a little potato, ha! I always style baby with a custom headband, such as below, or an adorable hand knitted bonnet. These small pieces add a classic touch to your session without deterring from your portraits. Baby should always be the star. I like for their hands to show, too, since you spend about 9 months growing baby, ha! I also use a flokati rug with each session. They add much texture and variety to our time together. I have many different color options in studio.
