Forest Friends Nursery Items to Use as Photo Props

They are many items commonly used in decorating a rustic nursery theme that can be used to add interest to your pictures. Including stuffed animals, receiving blankets and crochet baby hats with an outdoorsy vibe in your baby's first portrait shoot is an excellent way to guarantee that objects with sentimental value, handmade by loving hands will be never be forgotten.

Unusual and Unexpected Photo Props

Beyond the usual suggestions for decorative household items such as baskets, etc. there are other pieces of nursery decor that can come to our aid in the creation of a setting with forest themed atmosphere. One posing idea that is often overlooked; dresser drawers.

Layer a soft sheepskin or length of faux fur fabric inside a dresser drawer to give the setting an appropriately rustic look as well as to keep baby comfortable, place in a spot to where your props will receive indirect lighting from a window and start shooting! This pose will produce spectacular shots of your sleeping baby.
