photo props for newborn shoot?

Yesterday, I commented that I'm going to attempt my own newborn photo shoot with Rambo before paying for a pricey photog.

I got this hat a while ago on Etsy:

Who wants me to find some other cute hats, props, etc.? Big Smile

  • I love the precious hats on Etsy!!  A friend of mine had her baby photographed in this cocoon like thing.  It was really cute!  What else can you find?

  • OMG, adorbs.  My mother made me a very cute pumpkin hat for LO (due in October), and is working on a sock monkey hat...so I am looking forward to having a couple props in place when LO arrives!

  • After our fairly successful attempt at DIY maternity pics, I think that we too will be attempting DIY newborn pics as well.

    So I too have been searching for inspiration and prop ideas.

    Here are some of my faves thus far:

    image
    Obviously nothing so frilly for a boy, but some type of bloomers or diaper cover - maybe with LO's name on it?

    image
    A decorative blanket and a basket

    image
    I don't necessarily love them on LO's back like this, but some type of building block spelling out LO's name.

    image
    Stuffed animals

    This set reminds of a pea in the pod - so cute!

  • Have you ever seen any of the hats I posted that my mom makes? She makes all kinds of animal and holiday hats. I asked her to start making them for me for the purpose of pictures. She has ventured out and sells them now too. They are $10.00 and $1.75 shipping. I can post pictures if you like?

  • I think hats are just the cutest prop - and the one you got is adorable!

    Have you thought of looking up photographers blogs for prop ideas?

  • I found a football hat on etsy which I'm sure DH will like.  I like the naked pics too.

  • So cute! I just googled newborn photography and started looking through them for ideas. I found some where they take old fashioned suitcases and put a fluffy blanket in it and put the baby on there. My late great grandma happened to give me her old suitcase that is maybe a foot long. It has her initials monogrammed on it also, and Kellen's middle name is her first name. I think it will make a perfect prop :) Do you have any family heirlooms like that you could use? I was also going to go to the craft store when they put baskets on clearance.

    Is it wrong that I want several of these (particularly the ones with the big googly eyes) and I'm not even TTC again yet?  Love them!! 

    Kathy, are you on pinterest?  If not, PM me and I'll send you an invite.  I have seen TONS of great baby photog ideas posted there.
