posing newborn babies in props

I know that the newborn babies are so beautiful just laying in their mama’s arms. But oh to put them in a prop every once in a while is so very fun! I love posing newborn babies in fun props.

And for more blog posts on newborn prop ideas you can look at these different blog posts. They have more prop ideas, fun newborn prop ideas based on daddy’s job, and some of my favorite props that I’ve purchased at antique stores.

more newborn photography props

I thought it would be fun to share some more newborn photography props that I’ve enjoyed using. Newborns are so fun. Especially when they’re new enough and little enough to mold them and play around with them. If the props are kind of random and out there than it’s my preference that there be some kind of connection. Let me show you what I mean… This shot below was done for a family that does melon farming. Awesome right?! See, it makes sense because they are melon farmers.

And this little girl’s daddy is an almond farmer…

And these pretty little girls…their daddy is a tomato farmer…

We get lots of farmers up here you see in our agricultural valley. It’s so fun!
