Antique Newborn Props

Kansas City Antique Newborn Props…  It’s funny how these simple beings can be so completely fascinating, especially when they are your own.  He was so incredibly easy to work with and that sweet face just melted me!  His hair has a tinge of red to it, he is just a peaceful little guy!

I routinely scour the antique stores for the most “one of a kind” props I can find.  I scrub, wash and disinfect the heck out of everything between sessions, even if it doesn’t touch baby.  {Tiny bit of OCD that way}.  Antique shopping is one of my favorite things to do, so if you see anything you think I might fit a baby in, definitely send me an email.  I am all about rustic and vintage!

This teeny cradle was handmade by the most wonderful carpenter -my grandpa.  He originally made it from my mother’s dolls.  Everything I have that he made  {candlesticks, a dressing table, a foot stool} still looks absolutely new.  He polished and sealed the wood so well that it just stands up to the test of time.  I used to put my own dolls in this cradle and now I use it in my Kansas City Newborn Photography shoots all of the time. It is a special thing and reminds me of him every time I pull it out for a shoot.

Mom’s maternity session was full of color, love and that sweet feeling of expectations and excitement.  Every expecting mom should document that time!  Thank you so much for choosing me to document your pregnancy and create your newborn portraits, it was a pleasure working with your sweet family and I hope to see you soon!
