This is my amateurish entrance into the world of baby prop photos. It's also my exit. This was fun, new and extremely hard. Babies are the disaster element in this project. The peaceful look that she's sporting in this photo was a fleeting moment. I was just happy I could snap one photo...even if it didn't match my intentions.
The backdrop and accessories were a cinch to make. I used a large sheet of black eco felt as the background and white eco felt as the birch trees. They were very simple, I just notched out the black parts with scissors. The gnome hat was ill fitting - but it did the job (serves me right for eyeballing it). And the little bodysuit? Duh, a Wishing Elephant original! This is the newborn size (5-8 lbs), can you believe how tiny she is?
