There is nothing I enjoy more than getting together with my photographer friends to do what I love most….photograph babies.  It is even more fun when one of your best photographer pals is also an ah-mazing prop vendor.  A lot of people how don’t realize how much actually goes into a photo.  Having beautiful high quality props totally makes a difference.

Marina is famous for her little pillow/tieback sets.  They are so perfect for the bum up pose because it gives just the right amount of leverage and helps make those precious back rolls you see here on one of our past models.

But when I saw this adorable fuzzy bonnet I thought potato sac was a must!  I love how it turned out.

I was so excited when I saw the picture of our sweet model, Remi.  She has the most beautiful little face and perfect skin.  She was a dream to photographed and flashed the sweetest smiles.  I was lucky to capture one because she was quick!

These bonnets fit so perfectly and are so unique!

The great part about Marina’s sets is that they are SO versatile.  Sometimes the pillows have a flip side with different patterns and tiebacks to match each side.  And some come with a tie back AND a hat so you can use for a boy or a girl.  You get so much variety out of these.  Like this adorable set.

I’m obsessed! Remi looked so cute!

With this little red plaid set, you can pair it with so many different colors and it will look amazing.  At first I thought it would be sweet with blue….and it totally is!

But then Marina suggested tan and some darker tones for fall and I have to say this is my favvvvvorite!  I just adore this especially with the upcoming holiday season.  You could plan your whole session around these little pillow sets for a beautiful cohesive look.

I am in love with Marina’s newest style headband.  It is a little bandeau and looks so sweet!

When I was finished I realized there was one more little pillow set to be photographed.  By this time Remi had woken up and had a bottle and was pretty content.  So I set her down and snapped away.  She was making the cutest little faces but this little growl made me laugh!
