When planning a portrait photo shoot and you know you want to use a prop, here are some great photography prop ideas to help you plan the perfect sitting:
Image background or backdrop - Try to keep the background simple. When in doubt, go with a solid colored background or even white. If you are shooting outdoors, a field full of flowers or beside a bridge or neat architectural structure looks awesome in a picture.
What to Wear - Depending on the little girls, age, a tutu as a photo prop really creates a fantastic look in a picture. Usually that is the only prop you will need because it’s so dramatic and beautiful to look at.
Baby Blankets - If the child is a newborn or infant, lay her in a baby blanket or swaddle her like a cocoon in one too! Put her in a little baby tutu, place her in a basket or neat box with the blanket and snap away. This look is truly breathtaking for newborn and infant girls.
Diaper Covers - If your little girl is crawling or can hold herself up on her knees, this is the PERFECT age to use diaper covers as a photo prop. Order a pair personalized with her name or in a favorite motif. Position the little girl on her knees or get her to crawl toward a favorite toy. Quickly snap your camera as she is moving away from you to capture the sweet name or saying on her little bottom. It is also a great excuse to photograph those pudgy baby thighs!
Real Cake or Cupcakes - Smash cake sessions are the newest rage in photo props. They are truly fantastic for 1-2 year old little girls and make the most incredible pictures for 1st birthday portraits. Picture your one year old toddler girl in a short, fluffy tutu with a big bow on top of her head smashing into to a gorgeous cake with absolutely no restrictions. Messy yes, but the pictures look really good. You can capture this look too!
Whether you are having professional portraits done or if you’re a self-taught photographer or mama, you’ll want to create the perfect photos possible. Props really have a way of creating cohesiveness when putting that finishing touch on her special portraits. Tutus are not only for baby photo props. Teens even enjoy wearing them as a prop for special sweet 16 portraits!
