What Props Are Used in an Infant Photo Shoot?

Infant photo shoots are one of the best ways to announce your new family member to the world while also creating a memory that you’ll get to cherish and look back at for the rest of your life.

Unfortunately, since babies have to be posed and nestled into surfaces to catch a great picture: it can be hard to pick what props you use. Nevertheless, these are the most popular options out there!

Hands of One of the Parents

One of the best props for newborns is completely free! With help from your newborn photographer, parents can hold or prop up their infant, posing them in comfortable and dreamy positions that help show the connection between the parent and the child. Some parents even double up, with one hand from each helping to pose or cradle their infant comfortably. 

Doll Furniture and Decor

The type of doll furniture and decor that works best for an infant photoshoot is the type that’s sized close to the infant’s size. Furniture for dolls like American Girl dolls is the best option for this. Avoid anything too small to be comfortable or has tons of tiny pieces. You don’t want to risk a choking hazard. Although your newborn photographer will be with you for every step, it’s vital that you still take steps on your own to be safe.

Stuffed Animals

Stuffed animals have always kindled imagery of comfort and peace and are a great prop for an infant photoshoot. However, avoid going for anything too contemporary, and instead, purchase an infant-safe toy that has a more ageless look to it. If your infant has a toy that a family member made for them or that you expect them to keep for many years, it might be a good idea to use that toy since it can be part of the memory that these images are capturing.

Cozy Duvets and Comforters

What’s better than a fluffy and comfortable scene of soft surfaces? Cozy duvets and comforters can help your infant look like an angel resting in clouds and gives you the chance to create the most peaceful and relaxing image possible. Colors most popular for duvets and comforters in these types of photoshoots are either off-white, pure white, or some muted and pale colors.  

Wicker Baskets Made Soft

Wicker baskets themselves aren’t very cozy, but when filled out with pillows, blankets, cushions, and other soft materials and surfaces, you can turn this into a comfortable bed for any child. Some families even stage the basket to look like it’s full of clean laundry and the baby’s taking a nap in warm freshly-dried linen. Make sure that if you use this prop, you protect and support the baby as much as possible with whatever is in the basket.

This Photoshoot Should Create Wonderful Memories

Although there are many stressful things about raising a newborn, your photoshoot shouldn’t be one of them. Instead, work with a photographer you can trust, and create images you’ll look back at fondly.
