How to make a floral baby bonnet prop

One of the most exciting parts of newborn and baby photography is not just the cute, adorable subjects I get to work with, but the fun and creativity involved with every photo session.  With spring in the air I wanted to create some beautiful spring themed set ups and loved the idea of  the floral baby bonnet prop to use at the studio.

Some of these bonnets can go from $40US – $100US on websites like etsy…. however you don’t need to spend a ton of money on expanding your prop collection if you have a little creativity and a hot glue gun.  One of my favorite things to do other then photography is creating beautiful handmade photo props to use during my sessions.

      I have had them on little ones from 5 months to 18 months… for the smaller ones I just clip the felt in the back to make it tighter so it doesnt move as much… I have yet to try this size on a newborn.. excited to though…
