Holiday Photo Props Guide for Baby Photographers

A Baby Photographer’s Guide to Holiday Photo Props

The Christmas holidays are still two months away, but in photography time the holiday shopping is NOW! The time to be ordering gorgeous holiday photo props has already begun, in fact it’s almost over! These are by far my favourites for this year. Honourable mentions below to some of my favourite vendors who don’t release holiday collections, but have gorgeous year-round selections.


Dear Felicity

Candice Scott from Dear Felicity has created some of my favourite tiebacks in the studio, and she also has a stellar eye for creating baby and newborn rompers that are the perfect combination of dainty and simple. Best part? This little shop is Canadian. Her new Christmas collection is definitely something to swoon over! the perfect holiday red, with the gorgeous vintage lace look, these little outfits are a dream! But don’t just take my word for it, check it out for yourself!  Be sure to act fast though; last I checked she was almost sold out of her holiday photo props!


All Newborn Props

Not into the whole “red Christmas” stuff? This shop is perfect for you! Alda from All Newborn Props creates the most dainty and simple pieces for newborns and sitters, and her Christmas collection does not dissapoint. I have coined this year’s holiday photo props as ‘Winter Wonderland’ outfits because of their serene white colour and delicate textures. Those intricate details are definitely something to swoon over, just check out the little tree!


Cora  & Violet

The talented Baily Smith of Cora & Violet always offers the most creative, one of a kind upcycled baby props for sitters and newborns. Her holiday collection for this year has only started to sneak its way out, but I can guarantee that once that bunch is live in the shop, it will fo fast! Last year’s raindeer critter romper was adorable, and I expect nothing less this year. With vintage lace and plaid, you can’t go wrong!


Cute as can be Props

Holiday green is a rare occurence these days, since vendors tend to focus on red & white since they are the primary colours of Christmas. Cute as can be Props has escaped the mould this year and created lovely newborn rompers and hats and outfits in a stunning forest green (and gorgeous red and white ones to match and coordinate!). And by golly just look at that adorable snowman lovie! She’s even got a whole collection of snowman stuffies!
ps: rumour has it she is restocking this item the shop next week!


Soul Blossom Boutique

Another fellow Canadian vendor, creating ever-gorgeous props, Jolaine has put together a beautiful Christmas collection for us over at Soul Blossom Boutique. Her holiday collection “Magie de Noel” is a matching romper & tieback set for newborn girls. The lovely “Fleurette” halo is the perfect coordinating piece.


Honourable Mentions

The following vendors deserve an honourable mention for offering props that can be used all year round that qualify as “holiday photo props” for their creamy tones and delicate textures, and versitility, but who’ve not technically released holiday collections: Cocoa & Blush, Devoted Knits, Leah Michele Creations, Pooks & Lulu (their newsboy cap is my favourite!), Natural Whispering Wonders, Goodnightmoon Props, and many many more amazing vendors out there!


Forget black friday, let’s take advantage of the red, white & green beauties!
