Newborn Props & Stuff

Posted by Nina on Jun 28, 2010

My favorite sessions are almost always newborn sessions.. There is just something so fun about brand new parents and teeny tiny little babies, and most parents are eager to let you put them in cute little costumes and funny hats. I’ve had a lot of little boys born this year so I needed plenty of gender neutral props so I started with this cute little hammock.
It’s a perfect prop for newborns. They just fit in the center and there isn’t a lot of fabric for the baby to get lost in. Most of my props that moms choose are neutral colored so I decided to keep this hammock in creams and browns. I do want to knit a couple more in different colors and possibly add some fringe to them.

Next is this adorable little pea pod! How cute is this!?!? I finished this set right before this newborn session only to find that the father hates peas with a passion! It was a total coincidence but we used it anyway! I am sure this is one sweet pea that the father will love… or so I hope!


Last but not least are these adorable little baby booties! They look like little moccasins with socks inside but they aren’t! These aren’t photography props, they were a gift for my client turned friend’s brand new little boy. They are quite possibly the cutest baby booties ever! Oh and see that throw the baby is laying on? The mom hand spun the yarn and hand wove the fabric. Yes, she’s that talented!

I am in awe of your talent and creativity – both at imagining props and knitting them up, *and* at photography.

The hammock is linked on my Ravelry page @CherrySprinkle, I don’t think I used a pattern for the pod but if I did, it would be from the same pattern author that made the hammock 🙂 Thank you!
