10 Must-Have Newborn Props for Your First Photos

Yesterday I talked about my love for newborn photography and how I’ve been browsing Etsy well, always. Seriously, it’s pretty much part of my job description. Right under professional shopper. While I’ve been stocking up on a few things, I’ve come across tons of adorable props along the way. And well, I mean tons. Since I can’t buy them all {my husband is already rolling his eyes} I thought I would share my little prop treasures with you because well, they are just to cute to hide. From backdrops and photography props to cute bow-ties, hand-knitted pretties, and headbands; I think I’ve found it all!

After the jump, take a look at 10 of my favorite newborn props. Hopefully you can incorporate a few into your newborn photos whether you are at home or in a studio!
