I assisted my friend the other day with a newborn session. She is always my sidekick when I do mine. It was only fair that I pay her back with all the help she gives to me. She asked me to bring a flower headband to the session to use as a prop. I must admit I am kind of against the whole 'huge flower on top of a baby's head' trend. I like to keep the newborn pictures simple. So...I made a headband with a ginormous flower and then a few crocheted headbands that were smaller, as well. I was surprised that I really liked the way the images turned out! It actually got me thinking about all the props I should start collecting. I do use fun baskets occasionally...but I would LOVE to expand my basket of props. Especially FUN hats! So...I would love to hear what your favorites are! Please leave a comment with your favorite prop and where you buy from! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Etsy! I love buying from moms with talent! Please list your favorite sellers. This will be great information for us all to find props and also great advertisement for those selling these types of things! So...if you know someone who makes darling hats, cocoons, or any other photography prop...let us know who they are!
At the end of the week...(Friday-ish) I will randomly select a winner from the list of comments and send you 3 custom newborn headbands (Made by me) as shown in the picture above! (You can choose from the available colors...) You do not need to be a photographer to leave a comment! Everyone is welcome to join in!
So...let us know your favorite props and sellers!
If you don't have any ideas for props or sellers...you can still leave a comment letting us all know what you like to see in newborn photography...
