Well I just got a last minute booking from my first repeat customer, a lady whom I shot maternity pictures for wants me to do her baby girls newborn pictures, well I've been telling myself for months I needed to get some girl props but I just hadn't got around to it yet, all I've had so far is newborn boys so I have blues and browns in hats and cocoons but nothing for a little girl. Where would you get stuff like that locally that you dont have to have shipped to you? I tried googling childrens boutiques out here but I just keep getting clothing boutiques...I have this shoot on Monday so I have little time to get my hands on something.
Good luck! I can't wait to see the pics from it! Maybe you can make a little tutu for the baby, they are so easy to make. Otherwise, I have no idea cause I have never done a newborn shoot. (or any shoot for that matter! )
Michaels and craft stores. Ribbons and bows make for cute props to use in different ways. Also try second hand stores. I get cheap baskets, bowls ornaments, hats, etc. super cheap there and then just clean them up.
Thanks Nicole (MommaDucks) for my new & awesome siggy.
I have plenty of baskets and such, just needing girly hats and cocoons...Erin...I tried the etsy thing and when I search locations it just comes up with a bunch for shops in my area...how can I search of a certain item like cocoons and hats in my area? I can't figure it out...I don't just want to search shops with items I don't need.
If you don't know how to knit, you can get a knifty knitter set (they sell them at Walmart $12 or JoAnn's for like $19) You can make coccons and hats, I've made a lot, it takes about 5 hours to do a cocoon, and about a hour to a hour and a half to make a beanie! It's not hard AT ALL!! very very easy and very fast! E-mail me if you want more info!!
I went to Hobby Lobby and got some fabric cut to make my own cap and whatda know, I find knitted caps in all different colors a few aisles down lol...I bought some large flowers and hair clips and I am going to glue them on the back of the flowers to clip on the knitted cap. I also went back to a lady on Etsy that I ordered a cashmere cap and cocoon from and wanted to see if she had anything already made that she can rush ship to me and she did, she had a pink tube cocoon and a cashmere pink and white cap so I ordered those too.
Ohhh I so want to learn more about knitting, do you have a link to this knifty knitter kit thing?
