One of my favorite shoots to do with small babies involves pearls and feathers. These darling old-fashioned pictures look smashing in black and white or sepia, it gives them that vintage look everybody seems to be looking for these days.
I prefer to shoot these photos with the baby just in a diaper, with a diaper cover on, that way the pearls really stand out. These photos have three aspects, a headband of some kind, I like to use a largish flowers, a strand of pearls to go around their neck and then a pile of feather boas to surround the little one with.
Feather boas are a prop that I plan on replacing often, they just don’t hold together well over a long period of time, but the necklaces should last a long time.
These sweet pictures are always ones I keep up my sleeve for those beautiful baby girls.
