10 Newborn Photo Props for Your Baby's First Photo Shoot

10 Newborn Photo Props

10 Newborn Photo Props

While I hold no claim to be a professional – photography is a love of mine. Shooting with my  Canon 60 D is one of my favorite hobbies – and my favorite subject to shoot? Babies of course!

With a couple of newborn photo props and a good camera, you can save a few hundred dollars on newborn photos. Do know that patience and timing are also 2 must haves when capturing newborn photos.

Here are 10 Newborn Photo Props for Your Baby’s First Photo Shoot:
