Photography props are very important for both the photographer and the client. As the photographer I want to deliver exactly what my client desires. The look of the photos are of highest importance to my clients. If you want a timeless classic look, or something more bohemian, props make that happen.
If you know me personally, you will know that I am a mini "Mother Nature" type of person. I buy fluoride free toothpaste. I shop ONLY at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. I believe the cure to anything can be found in nature, and I have a reverse osmosis water filtration system. In a nutshell, I like things "ORGANIC" & "OLD SCHOOL".
So why make my own props? Simple. It is the easiest way to bring all of that into my photography. When I am making my own props, I envision a part of myself in that prop. Whether I am crocheting a hat, a blanket, or a wrap, or gluing flowers on head bands, IT-IS-ME! At that point I have created something completely unique. Something that only I can offer. And that transforms over into my photography. When I see a pice of art in my clients nursery or bedroom, and the baby in the photo is wrapped in the wrap that I hand made, and the tie back that I created, I feel the greatest joy!
Do you have a personal prop or family heirloom that you would like to use in your session? I want to know about it! What is it? Do you have a picture of it? Why is it so important? What is the STORY behind it? Post below, or email me: MashaGPhotog@gmail.com I'd love to hear from you!
