Photography Props For Newborns | Southwest Florida Photographer

Photography Props For Newborns | Southwest Florida Photographer

It has been a busy couple of weeks at Laura Michele Photos!  As I prepare for my upcoming newborn photo shoot, I have to resist the temptation to purchase every one of the adorable little hats and photography props that are available out there for newborns.  So instead, I have taught myself how to crochet!  Here is what I’ve come up with so far.  I can’t wait to see them all on the new baby boy!  I wonder how many other photographers make their own props, because these things are expensive!

I tried knitting a while ago, but I had a hard time with the two needles.  I was most likely doing it wrong, though.  Since I had read that knitting was easier than crocheting, I figured I wouldn’t even try to crochet.  But then I started adding up the cost for all of these cute little newborn props, and it was decided:  I am GOING to learn how to crochet!  To my delight, it was much easier than I thought it would be.  There are some more advanced techniques that I have yet to learn, of course, but I’ve been able to make some of the adorable props I would have paid $20+ each for!  So I’m pretty happy with it.  I’m so grateful for all of the wonderful patterns available online!

In addition to the hand-made items, I’ve been able to find several cute baskets and a crate, as well as plenty of blankets, wraps, and scarves.  I can’t wait for this little bundle of joy to arrive!  Although I’ve photographed all kinds of subjects, this will be my first professional newborn shoot!  Sure, I’ve practiced plenty on my own newborns, but I’m not sure I even prepared for their births as much as I’ve prepared for this shoot!  Just a few weeks to go.

So I’m new to this whole website thing, but not new to photography!  I’ve been, and still am, working as an independent contractor for an outdoor portrait company based out of Michigan.  They have photographers working in different parts of the country, but I’m sure it’s safe to say that we Florida-based photographers are the only ones busy this time of year!

I love my job as a photographer, and I love meeting all kinds of new people.  If you’re in the Southwest Florida area (Ft. Myers, Naples, Bonita Springs), please contact me to schedule your family’s next portrait session!  Click here to send me an email, or visit my Contact page for other ways to reach me.  Thanks!
