Newborn, Cake Smash, Maternity Photography

When I first met Terrie and Joe at their consultation, they told me that baby had a western themed nursery. After they left, I practically tripped myself running to the internet to find the perfect props for my vision.

I have to say, this little horse from Off My Hooks did not disappoint. She makes felted creations for newborn photographers. Sometimes the hardest part of my job is sourcing props for clients. For instance this little horse took 2 months to get to me. They can cost a pretty penny, but I trust they are well made and will last me many sessions.

Lucky for me, the horse arrived just 48 hours before his session. I was starting to sweat that it wasn’t going to be here and all my prep work was going to be for nothing.

As all sessions do, we started with parent photos. Cute little Dean was a perfect gentleman, he slept and snuggled his mom and dad in the cutest ways. I knew I wanted to dive right into my cowboy setup, just in case he woke up and decided to be non-cooperative. But I first did a quick potato sack pose on the flokati since he was already in the wrap.

Creating a setup

Now was my moment of truth. Dean was made to be a cowboy. Boy he got his tiny little hands on that horse prop and he wasn’t letting go. I love how he was so willing to just fold himself right around it. Seriously. Tell me this isn’t the perfect piece of art for a western themed nursery. I can imagine this printed big above his changing table, can’t you?

I’m so excited for Dean to come back in a year, we’ve already started talking about his western themed cake smash. Can you even imagine how cute that will be?!
