When mom told me that dad was a major Star Wars fan, I knew I had to incorporate a Star Wars theme into their newborn session. I immediately began searching for the perfect little outfits and started collecting figurines to use for the session as well. I had to be clever in keeping them from my own kids because I knew if they saw them, they would never give them back to me! As I started my search for the perfect set-up, the ideas started flowing. When mom and dad walked in for their session and saw the Star Wars props laid out, they got pretty excited. It’s an amazing feeling to be able to provide these special memories for parents. Part of the process when scheduling a newborn session with Dawn Potter Photography is filling out a pre-session questionnaire. This questionnaire is extremely helpful for me when planning a session. It helps me to visualize the parents’ goals for the session and get an idea of their style and taste. Knowing this ahead of time allows me to deliver a gallery of images to mom and dad that they truly love and are proud to display in their home. Because I also did a maternity session for Hunter’s parents before he was born, we also discussed goals for the maternity session for the very same reason.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from little Hunter’s Star Wars themed newborn session. And trust me, these were hard to narrow down!
