Choosing a Theme for your Newborn's First Photoshoot

You're pregnant! Congratulations! Now---time to start making decisions.

Just for starters, you'll need to choose:

- Disposable diapers or cloth?

- Choose a pediatrician?

- Pick out a name?

- To circumcise or not?

- Which brand of car seat?

And the list goes on and on. But not all of the choices have to be hard like those. Choosing a theme for your newborn photos is one decision you can't get wrong!

Some people believe you become an adult when you turn 18, others say it's 21, still others say it's when you graduate from college. I believe having a baby is the real moment when you become an adult because your life is not only about you anymore. Soon you'll be watching Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol for your little one's sake.

Newborn pictures are one way to start blending your old life with your new life! Think about the things that make you who you are today. It can be anything!

Did you go to every midnight book release for Harry Potter? Then why not get your newborn into the wonderful world of wizardly early!? Look at this sweet baby Hermione dreaming of the perfect swish and flick for a Wingardium Leviosa spell.

Or are your book interests wider than Harry Potter? Is there a part of you who secretly wishes you were a librarian? Teach your baby the importance of reading early with a book themed session!

Crochet and knit newborn photography props are all over Pinterest, but when you've just had a baby you don't have time to be crocheting! So for this busy mama, I made the ultimate crochet newborn picture to show her love for all things yarn.
