I admit it. I’m a prop junkie. I love searching for them and using them in my portrait sessions. I’ve discovered that they help with behaviour management during a children’s session and the kids have such fun with them. I usually try not to go overboard with an abundance of props in a single session but Valentine’s Day is an exception!

I love looking in pound stores for props and their seasonal/holiday items can be great for props! With Kaylee’s Valentine’s portrait session we used an old “Sunlight” crate (again, from the Antiques Market) and various items from the pound shop. As you can see, Kaylee had a great time with the props!
