During pre-consults with clients I always ask them to bring favorite books, lovies, blankets, toys, etc. I can’t promise we can incorporate them but I always try. I’m pretty careful to not limit what’s “photoworthy” since you just never know.
Case in point: got a four foot giraffe? No problem.
So, if you have room for it and it’s special to you, bring it. You just never. know.
