Neutral Newborn Photography Props from Amazon Prime

If you’re a photographer just starting out, you might be searching for the perfect neutral newborn photography props to add to your prop collection so that you can capture those amazing first days of a baby’s life for families. I’ve slowly been adding props to my collection over the past few months so that when I open my studio a few months from now, I have a variety of baskets, buckets, wraps, headbands and more to offer my clients. I’ve had great luck finding props and accessories everywhere from eBay and Etsy to Craigslist and local rummage sales. But I still needed some basics to fill the holes, so I turned to a trusted resource – Amazon. I bet you didn’t know they have tons of options for photographers!

I’ve pulled together some neutral newborn photography props that you can pick up on Amazon (all are Prime eligible). Amazon has tons of options for the newborn photographer. I just chose to pull together a variety of props in neutral colors that all coordinate to get you started, whether you’re shooting a baby boy or girl.

These sophisticated box crates are perfect for storing props in your studio when you’re not using them to pose a baby, so they easily do double duty!

Use the other three pieces as needed to get baby in the proper position.
