I recently met Shannon, i.e. “OrganicMama,” on Etsy, and she creates these wonderful hand-knit hats (with ears!) and cocoons for little ones. I have been looking for some simple props to include in my newborn shoots – they’re often asleep for the whole time and of course can’t do many “poses,” so props, environments, backdrops, etc. really help stage an adorable newborn photo.
This past Sunday, I photographed two 2.5-week old munchkin girls, Vivian and Anabella, both born on the same day to moms that are friends – crazy coincidence! They were past the cocoon stage – which is within 10 days or so of birth, as they need to be teensy weensy and scrunched up; these girls have matured and can straighten their mini legs. However, we got some adorable photos using Shannon’s hats. I absolutely love the yarn she uses; I’m normally not a fan of traditional baby pink and baby blue, but the marbled colors in her products are understated and really sweet. And of course, they are so, so soft.
Here are a few of my favorite photos featuring Shannon’s beautiful hats.
