Photography props was something I didn’t even think of when I first started taking photos. Then I started looking around and seeing all these awesome props and thought to myself I can’t buy these right now, however, maybe I can make them! So I started with tutus. I went to www.youtube.com and searched non sewing tutu making (I can’t sew to save my life). Wow! I didn’t realize how easy it is. Here are a couple of pictures using some of my tutus.
I then went shopping at Gordman’s and Hobby Lobby. I love these stores for props, however, I can get into lots of trouble in there buying! The first one box I bought was a treasure box here are a couple of set ups. The blue netting is a blue tutu on a hoop from a thrift store! The next prop I bought was the Pretty Box. Here is a shot with the pretty box and some of my tutus.
I didn’t want to forget the crowns I just made. This is simple: Go buy some lace and some liquid stiffener and paint. You can see my treasure box comes in pretty handy. However, I have gotten people asking me don’t you take pictures of little boys. I was so happy to have the chance to photograph this little boy. I had my children help me come up with this set using my treasure box and their toys. I can’t take credit for this prop but I did set him up with his dads old letter jacket.
I have many props and I keep buying them. I might be addicted to props! Here is my latest fantastic prop! My zebra chair and yes my purple tutu! I have to say awesome!
