I have had a bit of feedback about my Newborn mobile studio as of late: it is so big, and the selection of props is so large, that I have overwhelmed some clients. So, in response to this, I have built an online inventory of ALL of my props. Newborn clients are welcome to browse the listing and pre-select their favourite props, so that I am not overwhelming their space with a minivan full of rubbermaid totes.
Below, you will find a visual listing of every single newborn prop and blanket that is available to bring to your home, as part of the mobile studio. I typically aim for 2 bed/basket type shots + 5 outfits + 3 different wraps per session. Please let me know which items catch your eye!
Wraps are one of the most important props I use in newborn photography. They can coordinate in with various other props/hats etc, or be draped over baby in bum-up pose. They can also be used as a soothing tool with an overstimulated baby, in various different wrapping styles. I highly recommend choosing several wrap colours for your shoot, as they can give you a lot of variety in your photos, without having to disturb baby too much between shots.
In addition to the items listed above, I bring everything that is needed to photograph your baby. This includes a backdrop stand, and a big beanbag-filled posing pillow. I also bring additional posing aids to position your baby properly – with proper support where it is needed, for the baby’s safety and comfort. I also have large white and back backdrops for the family and sibling portion of the session.
I don’t typically bring stuffies with me, but I am happy to work with a stuffy that you may have on hand. The reason for this is that everything that I bring into your home is cleaned between families. Stuffies tend to look old after repeated washings. I also don’t have an inventory of team props, as everyone has their own favourite teams. I tend to say that if you are a big enough fan of a team that you want your baby photographed with their logo, then chances are that you already have something in your home that has the team on it. Jerseys, t shirts and hats can all be used in your session.
Lastly, if you have a hobby or theme in mind, please don’t be shy to mention it. Once I receive enough requests for a certain theme, I will order it, however if the request is a one of, or a more rare theme, I will try to work with something you already have in your home 🙂
