Props and planning I have an area in my studio that I do all of my prop and parent shots, I plan which pose I will do with each prop and how I will do it beforehand so once they are in the pose on the blanket I can keep them in that same pose and just move them over into the prop. I also plan ahead which blankets and poses I want to do. This helps me keep organized and keeps the session flowing well. I aim to get the session done in 2 hours but it depends on the baby, 3 hours is my average.
