Fondness for Chunky Knits

I like to contrast the smooth softness of baby skin with textured fabrics, especially chunky knits. When ever a mom takes out chunky knit items as options for shoot accessories/outfits, I immediately gravitate towards these blankies, sweaters and hats. You'll note that there are 3 different chunky knits in this set of photos.

Limited distractions. Indoor shoots does not mean studio-style photos; as long as there isn't a lot of (especially dark colored) clutter in the background, the natural home environment is a fine place for photos. Light color furniture and walls works better than dark, so that light reflects off the surfaces and reduces the need for additional artificial lights. It would be a whole different story if we were working on a dark brown velveteen couch with dark walls and curtains, for example.
