Perfect Newborn Photo Props

There are some things that are just easy to photograph:  sunsets, sleeping puppies, and babies.  And it’s easy to take newborn photography from good to great – you just need a visually interesting prop.

In general, there are two types of newborn photo props:  props the baby sits in or is surrounded by, and props the baby wears.  You can combine both types of props into one photograph if the props are along a similar theme (for example, the baby sits in a giant bird’s nest with a crown on flowers on her head).  But if the prop is really eye-catching, like a funny hat, it may be best to keep the rest of the photo simple so the prop doesn’t overwhelm the real star… your cutie pie.

Here are a few of my favorite props from Etsy!
