Props are objects used during photography session to personalize your photo. It is simply considered to be anything movable or portable to stage your memorable moment. Photography props help illustrate the composition to tell more about you and your family by adding information about your job, hobbies, what you really enjoy doing, or something just for fun.

For example props at newborn photography help to show size and context of your newborn, and simply adds to the cuteness of the photo. You can use anything, but be wise and choose props that you will be pleased to see for years to come.

Newborns always look best in their birthday suite. Example of props: bigger sized hats, simple baby hats, stuffed animals, different type of baskets, toys or even a cute wooden doll bed. Props can help to tell the story. Even simply showing your hands together with your baby will show how small your baby is.
How about a photo session of first year birthday cake eating?

Toddlers and older kids will have fun climbing a tree, playing with a ball or different color balloons, someone can stand off camera and blow bubbles at kids or they can blow the bubbles themselves.
