These are all fantastic. The lighting, poses, props and "sets" are all perfect. glad you got to use the stump you spend so many days carving out.

A few questions if you don't mind - Bobbytannehill makes reference to a wood floor setup. Are your floors set pieces? If so, about how big? Are the background wallpapers actual walls in your place or are they also part of your set? Any information and especially a behind the scenes shot would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry you've been asked so many questions but I have one more, hehe
What is the green shaggy looking prop? Something you made, or something you bought? I noticed it in another session you did. Can you find it in other colors as well?
You are so creative in your newborn sessions- such an inspiration! :)

The wooden floor is a bamboo mat that rolls up its about 6' x 5'
The backdrop is just material hung up
The shaggy rug is a bath mat from a local department sore called debenhams it came in light blue and light grey too

Here are a couple of pull backs from an old shoot but the set up is basically the same

These are awesome! I know the parents love every one of them!

I have a few questions.

What lighting did you use?

I really love the last pictures in your gallery. (With the parents' holding the baby, black background) Did you just have them wear black? Did you have to do a lot of post processing on those images?

Did you use a boppy on your beanbag, or just a beanbag when you got "the pose".

I'm with the others, where did you get the barnwood flooring?

Thank you so much for sharing tips and pictures of your set up with us! It is such a big help!

Sarah -

Thank you very much for the information and pullback shots. That is a very clever and practical setup you have.

Also, as sad as many may be that you're not going to be knitting (as much), congrats on the success of your photo business. With your tallent, it's no wonder you are so busy.

What can I say that hasn't been said already? These are simply as good as they get.

Keep on rocking it, and can't wait to see what you come up with next.

P.S. Congrats on the 5d mkII. :)

Absolutely stunning as always, misssassylassy!

I have a few newborn sessions upcoming and for the life of me I cannot get the baby to balance on his little arms as you do.......would you mind detailing exactly how you do this? Some say they do composites.......other​s say the baby actually holds his own little head up......any advice greatly appreciated......in my sessions, the babies little head just smooches all up and slumps.....lol!

Also, how old is the baby in theses pix?

Also, for anyone interested....I am order some of these........check it out here, bamboo rug (external link)! They just got more back in stock!!!! :p

Sarah, maybe I missed it in the posts, but if you have a forum on a blog or website where you give tips to photogs, I would love to know about it. I haven't gotten into infant sessions yet, but want to & really need help with the how to's of posing, props, etc. These are so, so stunning.

Did you use a bean bag to pose the baby first? I've been looking for one but not sure where to buy...or what size/shape to get...any advice? I love that pose and am hoping to nail it sooner then later! Great shots... ;o)
