  1. Loved the video. Great pictures and ideas. I wanted to ask where do you get your props from? they are beautiful and very unique 🙂 would love to hear from you. Thank you

  2. Something I ordered a while back came in a USPS box that seemed just the right size for sitting a newborn inside and using baby's hands to prop up head on the edge of the box. I am saving it.  Not a professional photographer, but like to play a little.  Little kids and babies are not easy, but if I shoot enough, sometimes I get a great pic. Need to figure out how to make the edge of the box comfy for baby's arms.  Would like to use those packing "noodles" too.  Maybe gluing them to pieces of different sizes of fine netting could work?  A blanket or afghan would be nice too.  Wonder if using bubble wrap is possible…Props take a lot of trial and error and time!  Good to have a baby doll or teddy bear for experimenting.

  3. Congratulations on some beautiful shots. I would like to take similar photos of my grandchild. I just wondered what camera, lens and lighting you used.

  4. on the first bottom towel, did you use the first towel to cover a wood board? it seems so straight. If so, I like the idea. Can you confirm. Thanks
