If let me do the newborn shoot for my baby again, I will use my own props and baby costumes due to hygiene reason. My baby developed some rashes after using costumes provided from studio. I guess it could be due to dust from it. Also, I will choose to do photography session at home instead of studio. Reason being it would be more manageable: it is quite tiring to travel with newborn to the studio as alot of things needed to prepare and it would be easier for me to breastfeed my baby in my own home.

She still loves the idea of baby photoshoots but with more fuss-free, carefree, natural poses.
