Choosing Newborn Photography Props for your newborn photos

Newborn photography props can add cuteness and creativity to your photoshoot! Here are some popular props for newborn photography:

  1. Wraps and Swaddles: Soft, stretchy wraps and swaddles can help create adorable, cozy poses. They can be used to cover the baby or create cute textures.

  2. Knit Hats and Bonnets: These add a touch of cuteness and can be matched with other props or outfits. Ensure they are soft and not too tight.

  3. Headbands and Bows: For newborn girls, headbands with delicate embellishments or bows can be a lovely addition.

  4. Faux Fur and Blankets: Soft, fluffy fabrics can make for great backdrops, and they can be used to tuck the baby in comfortably.

  5. Baskets and Crates: Baby-sized, shallow baskets or wooden crates can be used as props. Line them with soft blankets or fur for the baby's comfort.

  6. Tiebacks and Floral Halos: For a whimsical touch, tiebacks made of small flowers or floral halos can be a beautiful accessory.

  7. Stuffed Animals and Toys: Very soft, non-irritating stuffed animals can be placed near the baby for a cute, snuggly look. I love the felted animals that fit nicely in baby's small hands.

  8. Nest and Nestling Pods: These can provide a cozy space for the baby to nestle in, and they often result in adorable poses.

  9. Props with Meaning: Incorporate items that have significance to the family, like a favorite book, a cherished blanket, or a family heirloom.

  10. Minimalist Props: Sometimes, simplicity is key. A single, well-chosen prop, like a simple knit blanket or a textured basket, can create a striking image without overwhelming the scene.
