My setup for on location newborn session

"What kind of props do you have?" 

"Can you bring some costumes for the shoot?"

"Do you have any backdrop?"

I get asked these questions at least once a day. My answer is always: I have a basket and a fur but I prefer my client to use their own props/costumes, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.
