Newborn Baby Photography Props, Fabrics & Backgrounds

Part of the fun of newborn baby photography is in making use of props, fabrics & backgrounds to create beautiful images of your new arrival.

The studio’s inventory is constantly growing, so I can’t guarantee this page will always be completely up to date, but I thought it might be useful for me to show you some of the things we have to work with.

Newborn Baby Photography Props: Beds

Newborn Baby Photography Props: BOWLS

Rustic Nest

The rustic nest bowl is the largest prop in the studio and can comfortably accommodate newborn twins.

Wooden Heart-Shaped Bowl

The heart-shaped bowl has a natural wooden finish. It’s not very big!

Half-Barrel Wooden Bowl

Half-barrel wooden newborn baby photo prop
The half-barrel bowl doesn’t often work well for newborn photo sessions. Baby has to be just the right size. It’s great for sitter sessions a few months down the line, though!

Unpainted Metal Bowl

The unpainted metal bowl can be quite difficult to work with for newborn photography sessions, but it’s great for sitters!

Tall Rustic Wooden Bowl
