    I would love to win this type of hat! Hats are my fav photography prop and they are quickly becoming a addiction!! With baby #2 on the way for us, I can’t wait to use them on my own newborn!!!

  2. Holly on January 12, 2009 at 12:34 pm

    Oh, goodness, those hats are just precious!! I have to say that my favorite prop for girls are great hand-tied tutus. They can be just what every little princess needs! For boys, I think my favorite prop is food – what boy doesn’t love food, and that surely comes across in photos!

  3. Tracy on January 12, 2009 at 12:40 pm

    My favorite prop is my metal tub! Paid $8 for it at an antique store…was way cheaper and not as shiny as the one at the feed store! YEAH!Love the hats!

  4. Macy on January 12, 2009 at 12:43 pm

    This is going to be my favorite prop if I win! I’m trying to find cute, new stuff as I start an indoor studio at home. These are great hats.

  5. Kara on January 12, 2009 at 12:46 pm

    I love tutus for girls! They are my favorite props 🙂 – these little hats are beautiful!

  6. ali hohn on January 12, 2009 at 12:55 pm

    Those hats look adorable!

  7. Heidi on January 12, 2009 at 12:56 pm

    ADORABLE hats! My favorite prop is a smile… can’t have a great photo without it!!

  8. Gayle on January 12, 2009 at 1:02 pm

    I haven’t used a ton of props yet, but have been wanting to find some fun winter hats to photograph. These are just adorable and the picture at the top is so precious.

  9. ~Jen~ on January 12, 2009 at 1:04 pm

    my favorite prop is something that means something to the subject that I’m photographing. Like a child’s special blankey or teddy.

  10. liz applegate on January 12, 2009 at 1:14 pm

    hats are my favorite prop

  11. Jill on January 12, 2009 at 1:15 pm

    Lately my favorite prop has been my basket for newborns. Even my latest 3 mos. loved it–it’s so cozy when I put my fluffy blanket in there. Those hats are precious too… I’d love for it to be my next favorite prop–especially with the next two newborns I’ve already got on the books for!

  12. Ann on January 12, 2009 at 1:31 pm

    My favorite prop is my “tea cup” flower pot, I got at Walmart. It’s a flower pot size but looks like a polka dot tea cup and can fit a baby up to ONE YEAR! The hats are darling, would love to add that to my list of favs! Thanks.

  13. Tyra on January 12, 2009 at 1:33 pm

    Oh my! i have been wondering where to find these hats for quite some time! I really want to win! Right now my favorite photo prop is an old orange vintage chair that I bring with me on location (recently in the snow) and it really gives an artistic element to the pictures!

  14. Abby on January 12, 2009 at 1:34 pm

    Hats and tutus for little girls are my favorite props!

  15. Kelly on January 12, 2009 at 1:39 pm

  16. Lori M. on January 12, 2009 at 1:41 pm

    I LOVE hats but don’t have many right now so I guess I’d have to say a little brown wooden rocker that I found at a flea market. It works great for girls or boys! 🙂

  17. Marissa on January 12, 2009 at 1:43 pm

    OH I love those hats!!! I must say my favorite photography prop ARE sweet little hats on babies… or funky clothing.

  18. Stephanie on January 12, 2009 at 1:45 pm

    I love these hats. I always thought I would knit one…like that will actually happen. I haven’t used also of props. But I love my bean bag chair. For newborns they get into it, curl up and fall asleep.

  19. rebekah on January 12, 2009 at 1:49 pm

    i’ve lovin’ chairs these days. little ones, big ones, old ones, colorful ones! 🙂

  20. Sarah D on January 12, 2009 at 2:15 pm

    I LOVE props and hats have to be my favorite! It seems to relax the kids when they get to dig through my basket of hats, tutu’s, and boa’s to pick something to dress up. I seem to get the best faces when they are trying things on! My altime favorite is my tutu, little girls go nuts over it and their pictures turn out great!Love these hats, what a great addition they would be!

  21. Amanda on January 12, 2009 at 2:15 pm

    My favorite prop is rocks! We live outside of town and they are perfect for background, stools, and things to throw in the pond!

  22. Raquita on January 12, 2009 at 2:18 pm

    Oh I am totally in and will probably order a few for this coming season awesome find!

  23. Raquita on January 12, 2009 at 2:19 pm

    Oh I am totally in and will probably order a few for this coming season awesome find! Oh yah my favorite prop for babies right now is the daddys hands, I also like bowls, wooden ones.

  24. Barb on January 12, 2009 at 2:30 pm

    My favorite props are chairs; I’ve got a definite chair addiction! My favorite way to get them are Freecycle and thrift stores, but I check craigslist almost daily for THE chair! Still waiting for a good red one, I’ve got a great gold chair, a beautiful pale blue chair, and I believe I’ve gotten rid of more chairs than I currently have. :DI love these hats, though, and have been waiting to have some to use as props, so I’m grateful for the opportunity to win one!

  25. LaRell on January 12, 2009 at 2:32 pm

    A kids size couch in brown leather is my favorite prop. I can use it in so many ways with kids and adults. It is so versatile!

  26. MegganB on January 12, 2009 at 2:44 pm

    I love my blue bench and blocks for babies 🙂

  27. Kelly on January 12, 2009 at 2:45 pm

    I love those hats! Too cute. My favorite photography props are hats and baby legs.

  28. Kimi Boustany on January 12, 2009 at 2:45 pm

    my favorite prop would be…. a nice grungy wall. LOL!love the hats!!

  29. Heather M on January 12, 2009 at 2:48 pm

    Oh…I want me one of those hats:) My favorite photography props is all the litten woodens chairs I have found at antique stores.

  30. Judy on January 12, 2009 at 2:51 pm

    I love the hats and would definitely use it as a prop for my forays into amateur baby photography.

  31. Marissa on January 12, 2009 at 2:54 pm

    I love love love HATS! I also love really pretty scarves too.

  32. Kevin Halliburton on January 12, 2009 at 2:54 pm

    To me a good prop has to be something the subject actually owns and uses often so it adds to their story. It changes for me on every shoot but I think the favorite prop I’ve shot with by far is a plastic light saber. After the session I lit it up in Photoshop and made that seven year old very happy.

  33. Debbie G on January 12, 2009 at 3:07 pm

    Oh I love these hats!!! My fav prop has to be hats. I also love chairs (antiqued)!!

  34. Catherine on January 12, 2009 at 3:08 pm

    Tutus! Any color, any style. So cute on little girls of any age!

  35. Jordan on January 12, 2009 at 3:10 pm

    I am a huge fan of hats, and also of cocoons for newborns. These particular hats are gorgeous!

  36. kristina on January 12, 2009 at 3:11 pm

    My favorite prop is an antique doll bed that I use for newborns. Those hats are just too cute!!!!

  37. Christy on January 12, 2009 at 3:14 pm

    I’m too new to photography to have a favorite prop, sad to say! I just love to shoot my kids with whatever they have in hand at the time, to catch their mischief in action.

  38. laurel on January 12, 2009 at 3:31 pm

    I love using the parents wedding rings. The hats are darling!

  39. Christina on January 12, 2009 at 3:35 pm

    So far, I’d have to say patchwork bears have been my favorite prop to use — although adorable hats fall into second place!

  40. Kellie on January 12, 2009 at 3:37 pm

    I haven’t found a ‘favorite’ yet, but I love my little red tutu for baby girls! This could be one of my new favorites thought … that’s for sure!!!

  41. DB Impressions on January 12, 2009 at 3:39 pm

    I think so far…the newborn shoot that I did right before Christmas…we used one of our Christmas stockings to nestle her into…grab the Christmas spirit. The baby LOVED it and it was just the most darling thing. These hats are BEAUTIFUL!!

  42. Stephanie on January 12, 2009 at 3:39 pm

    My favorite prop is colorful lolli pops. Kids love them and they make the photos look timeless.

  43. Matt on January 12, 2009 at 3:40 pm

    Just what I needed (and didn’t have) for my last newborn shoot. Thanks for this opportunity.

  44. Navy Sou on January 12, 2009 at 3:44 pm

    HATS! HATS! HATS!!!!

  45. Kelly on January 12, 2009 at 3:52 pm

    i love my old suitcase that i found at a rummage sale. love the hats!

  46. Anna on January 12, 2009 at 3:52 pm

    I don’t use a lot of props, but I think tutus are my favourite right now. 🙂

  47. Candice on January 12, 2009 at 3:54 pm

    These are soo stinkin cute!! My favorite prop for little boy & girls would have to be rain boots!

  48. Jenn Galloway on January 12, 2009 at 4:17 pm

    Hmmm… my favorite photography prop is usually invisible – but it is a bean bag chair – to make the babes nice and cozy.

  49. Janene on January 12, 2009 at 4:20 pm

    Super cute hats!! I would love to win one! My favorite prop is my wood toddler chairs. One blue and one yellow, with both of their paint flaking off and peeling (probably lead . . . yikes!!) and one just natural. They keep the toddlers contained (sitting on or standing on) and fun for those pre-walkers to pull themselves up on or to sit on.

  50. Tiffany Ruth on January 12, 2009 at 9:26 pm

    I love a cute outfit and KILLER SHOES!! Shoes say a great deal about a person!!

  51. Lysha on January 12, 2009 at 4:30 pm

    These hats are so precious! I’m still in the beginning stages of my photography business, so I don’t have that many props yet. When looking at others photography, I do love anything that brings color to the picture.

  52. shannon michaelis on January 12, 2009 at 4:49 pm

    A smile is my biggest prop! Love the hats!

  53. Jillian Guimont Paddack on January 12, 2009 at 4:49 pm

    A good grungy urban alley gets me all excited, does that count as a favorite prop?! Really though I’d have to say a fun colorful and well worn chair does the trick for me most days 🙂 Thanks xo

  54. Ro on January 12, 2009 at 4:51 pm

    i love my sheepskin rug for newbies!

  55. Alicia on January 12, 2009 at 4:53 pm

    Vintage chairs are my favorite props for indoor or outdoor. Those hats are too cute. Pick me!

  56. Teresa on January 12, 2009 at 5:00 pm

    My favorite prop is an old chair I found in the garbage behind my church’s thrift store. My husband thought I was nuts, but I just used it for the first time in a session recently and it looked really great!

  57. Danielle Simone on January 12, 2009 at 5:05 pm

    My favorite prop is parents. I love kids holding their parents legs or them leaning their head on their parents.

  58. audrey daum on January 12, 2009 at 5:16 pm

    Oh! Please pick me 🙂 I LOVE these hats and love you blog!! You are so sweet to have these contests! My favorite photography prop is an old velvet red wing back chair that was actually in my grandparents home when I was a young girl. When I see it I remember all the fun times I had as a child visiting my grandparents and playing in the big red chair. It also photographs beautifully!!Thanks for the chance…Audrey Daum

  59. Vanessa on January 12, 2009 at 5:26 pm

    I love hats as props! They add so much character and can completely change the shot! 🙂

  60. Katherine on January 12, 2009 at 5:31 pm

    Super cute! Favorite props.. hats now 🙂

  61. Tori on January 12, 2009 at 5:44 pm

    My favorite props are tutus or pettis and hats!

  62. gina on January 12, 2009 at 5:59 pm

    hats are my favorite!!! I have one of these and want about 10 more!!! They are so well made, a perfect fit and the colors are to die for!!

  63. Angela on January 12, 2009 at 6:13 pm

    Love these hats!! the perfect accessory for a naked newborn!

  64. JodieM on January 12, 2009 at 6:22 pm

    I’d love to win that hat. How adorable!My favorite prop would have to been a chair. I’d like to start a collection of them!

  65. Irene on January 12, 2009 at 7:00 pm

    I don’t use props yet, but due to the cold weather, I find an adorable hat the perfect accessory. And these hats are absolutely adorable!!! Oh, I hope I win, although I will most likely have to buy more. I have 3 little girls of my own and I don’t think I can choose who should wear the hat!

  66. Julia Brown on January 12, 2009 at 7:17 pm

    Hats and big oversized chairs are my favorite props and the Happy Hats are adorable!

  67. Jillane Shuman on January 12, 2009 at 7:32 pm

    My favorite is old trunks,fabrics, and teddy bears!

  68. Kathryn Pierce on January 12, 2009 at 8:21 pm

    I don’t have it, but I just know it would be my favorite. I would like a vintage-y pink chair – it would become my favorite. My favorite prop of all time was a client’s pearl necklace that we had her newborn clutch. It was her mother’s (the grandmother) and she had just passed the year before.

  69. Sarah Morin on January 12, 2009 at 8:26 pm

    My favorite prop is a favorite blankie…probably because my daughter loves hers so much. And it works for both boys and girls. Love, love, love the hats!!!!

  70. robin on January 12, 2009 at 8:44 pm

    An old slate lap chalkboard – it’s so versatile. Write name, birthday, and weight and place it next to the wee ones or let the older ones take a shot at writing their name or drawing a picture. (Such a great ice breaker if you have a shy little one!)

  71. Tiffany Austin on January 12, 2009 at 9:24 pm

    These hats are BEAUTIFUL! So far my favorite prop for babies is a boppy….you don’t see it but it makes shots so much easier and helps with propping baby up. For kidlets, I love the rocking chair and another little chair my son has (they were mine when I was a kiddo).

  72. Jennifer on January 12, 2009 at 9:47 pm

    I would have to say my knitted cocoon and matching hat…love it!

  73. Elma on January 12, 2009 at 9:47 pm

    my fave props is hats of course!

  74. Tori Ryan on January 12, 2009 at 9:52 pm

    My favorite prop is a vintage scale I won on Ebay. These hats are too cute though. It would definitely move to the top of my favorite’s list.

  75. tracy on January 12, 2009 at 10:07 pm

    colorful striped tights and shiny red shoes always make for a fun shoot!

  76. gina on January 12, 2009 at 10:08 pm

    colorful umbrellas

  77. Michelle on January 12, 2009 at 10:24 pm

    I love chairs

  78. Gretchen Nishitani on January 12, 2009 at 10:25 pm

    Hats and smiles!

  79. Analiese on January 12, 2009 at 11:04 pm

    My favourite prop is the bubble machine. The kids faces light up and their minds are taken off the camera and onto the bubbles. Some of the best photos have come out of the use of that machine!

  80. Amy on January 12, 2009 at 11:14 pm

    I have a beautiful wicker bowl that I just love popping newborns in! Those hats are awesome! : )

  81. Lydia on January 12, 2009 at 11:19 pm

    Adorable Hats – I love hats and petties too.

  82. Annie on January 12, 2009 at 11:19 pm

    I love pettiskirts for girls and big, bright lollipops for all children! I’ve been looking at some hats just like this, with some newborn pics coming up and a new baby of my own too, I’m pretty sure this would go to the top of my favorite props list in no time!!

  83. Janie on January 12, 2009 at 11:25 pm

    I loooovvveee this hat! My favorite prop is my collection of hats. I have decided I am the imelda marcos of napkins, shoes(infant) and HATS! Have you ever read the childrens book of the hat seller and all the monkeys grab the hats and run up the tree? I LOVE it! Here’s to HATS!

  84. Melissa C on January 12, 2009 at 11:30 pm

    Oh my….these hats are adorable! They are definately my favorite prop and most addicting too I might say!

  85. lisa on January 12, 2009 at 11:38 pm

    My favorite prop is a child’s teddy, toy, blanket, something that is theirs.I have been drooling over hats like these for some time. We have a newborn baby session scheduled for the 30th, if Leilani cooperates and is born by then :-). I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have a purple hat for her as her mother love purple!

  86. Kelly Ann on January 12, 2009 at 11:43 pm

    I have a small bench that two years olds that just won’t stil still love to play with… it has saved me more than once! I’m not a huge fan of bring props, as I would rather use what the family has, but these hats look like a MUST have! So cute!

  87. Kristy on January 12, 2009 at 11:43 pm

    Those are so adorable!!! Love them!! I love tutus and fun hats for props.

  88. Tanya on January 12, 2009 at 11:49 pm

    Very cute hats!!! Favorite prop is pettiskirt for girls and I love my petal mat and flowers too.

  89. Stefanie on January 12, 2009 at 11:51 pm

    Wow! Way too cute! I have wanted a cute hat for so long because they make adorable props. I guess my fav. would be the tutu I made last Christmas. I have only used it twice but I love it! Thanks for all you do Jodi!

  90. Michelle Garthe on January 12, 2009 at 11:52 pm

    My favorite prop is a hat with a bare bottom (newborns)! These hats are soo cute! off to check out etsy! Thanks!

  91. Jill on January 12, 2009 at 11:52 pm

    My fav prop would have to be my new apple green cocoon! My 10 day old niece looked adorable in it! I think she might need a hat too!

  92. Cyndi on January 12, 2009 at 11:53 pm

    Look how adorable these hats are, so cute!! I so need one 🙂 My fav type of prop would probably be chairs, I have a bad addiction to them and baskets.

  93. Jamie on January 12, 2009 at 11:53 pm

    I have a round, dark wicker basket. That along with my fluffy faux fur blanket are my favorites for my newborns.

  94. Jenn D on January 12, 2009 at 11:59 pm

    I have a small red chair that I use when all kids want to do is run and don’t want to be in any of the pictures. It has really clean lines so the parents don’t mind and it’s one way to keep the kids still.

  95. Tracey on January 13, 2009 at 12:07 am

    My favorite photography prop is my little red stool

  96. Jolene Pienaar on January 13, 2009 at 12:17 am

    I don’t really own props as my passion for photography isn’t professional just yet, but I do love wings. I’m 6 months pregnant though, and have just totally fallen in love with these hats, they are the cutest thing ever!!

  97. Tara Pugmire on January 13, 2009 at 12:18 am

    Fav props are hats, flowers and bows for little girls and babies.

  98. Krista on January 13, 2009 at 12:21 am

    I love to use boots and hats! These hats are too adorable!!! Would be so cute on a baby!!!

  99. Alanna on January 13, 2009 at 12:23 am

    My favorite prop right now is my med b&w pettie – so fun!

  100. Nancy on January 13, 2009 at 12:40 am

    Hi, one of my favorite props would have to be a bottle of bubbles – kids have so much fun blowing them, and they forget about the photographer and you can get the funnest expressions!

  101. Tracy on January 13, 2009 at 1:08 am

    My favorite prop right now is a black and white printed ottman that I got at Target. Love the hats!!!!

  102. Kim S on January 13, 2009 at 1:29 am

    i have to say i love hats as props on babies and kids of all ages…the texture and colors are so fun!

  103. Jennifer Urbin on January 13, 2009 at 1:40 am

    hmmmm i’m not a huge prop person…but i do happen to have an ornate fabric umbrella with the most amazing colors and stitching and tassels on it. That would have to be my favorite prop. I love hats and scarves too.

  104. Shaila on January 13, 2009 at 2:00 am

    I’ve taken some pictures of my baby in a couple different hats and love it. But I think the ones I’ve like the most so far, are with my wooden rocking chair. I haven’t gotten into props much yet.

  105. Jennifer on January 13, 2009 at 6:13 am

    Right now, my fav props are the tutu’s for any age girl and all radio flyer’s for toddler boys.

  106. Mel on January 13, 2009 at 6:34 am

    These hats are too cute. My fav prop at the moment is chairs or balloons for young children.

  107. Mallika on January 13, 2009 at 6:41 am

    my favorite prop is the chair too! love anything with a pop of color or texture. but i can use HATS!

  108. Susan on January 13, 2009 at 6:56 am

    Chairs. But my husband told me if I bring another one home, there may not be any room left in the house for us.

  109. stacy t on January 13, 2009 at 7:12 am

    i don’t have a lot of props but i use my kids beanbag a lot to “prop” the babies up.

  110. jodi on January 13, 2009 at 7:20 am

    an old grungy, orange chair i found at a gargage sale.

  111. Kim on January 13, 2009 at 7:35 am

    My most favorite prop would be hats. LOVE them. All kinds. They are just so fun to play with. The kids generally like them as well.

  112. Rochelle Hoeger on January 13, 2009 at 7:49 am

    I don’t use a lot of props to get my favorite pictures. I guess, sometimes I think they just fill the frame with stuff that’s not going to be important in 15 years, because the “stuff” is mine, not theirs, and has no meaning to the client. So, my most favorite prop would have to be the same one I use all of the time….the subjects eyes. I feel successful when I can get the subjects eyes to tell the story during each session. As they say, the eyes are the way to the soul.

  113. Kathy on January 13, 2009 at 7:53 am

    Adorable hat!!! I don’t really have many props yet. I have an old wicker chair that I love using, but need to invest in baskets, tutus, hats, etc…..

  114. Alison on January 13, 2009 at 8:38 am

    My favorite prop (for babies) are their parents’ arms.

  115. Sara on January 13, 2009 at 8:41 am

    Those hats are fabulous! A picture of my 2 year old daughter in the woods is not complete without some kind of stick in her hand so I’d have to say that my favorite props are anything that kids find to play with in nature. This Fall all of the fallen leaves had beautiful colors and I love some of the shots I have of kids carrying around dandelions or pine cones. The look they get on thier face as they study something new that they’ve found is priceless :-).

  116. Tiffany on January 13, 2009 at 8:46 am

    I guess I’m with everyone else! HATS! oh, and big hair bows! I would love to add one of these to my obsession…I mean collection!

  117. Maureen on January 13, 2009 at 9:03 am

    Gorgeous hats! My favorite photography prop is the child’s favorite “lovey”

  118. Christina Valentine on January 13, 2009 at 9:30 am

    My favorite prop is a beanbag…especially for newborns…they just nestle right in! Love the hats!!

  119. Kim on January 13, 2009 at 9:32 am

    My favorite props – this is hard!! I love hats and lollipops and scarves.

  120. Jen on January 13, 2009 at 9:43 am

    Fave prop? I don’t have many, but I really like the baby angel wings I used on my son when he was born. What a cute shot!

  121. Pam on January 13, 2009 at 9:57 am

    My favorite prop is a single stemmed gerber daisy. Love the simplicity of it!LOVE YOUR BLOG!BLessings,Pam

  122. Emily on January 13, 2009 at 10:04 am

    I love baskets and buckets for babies. Those hats are adorable!

  123. Olivia on January 13, 2009 at 10:19 am

    For my little girls I photograph a super cute outfit and my pink cruiser wagon is TDF!!! I’d LOVE one of these hats. Especially since I am expecting in April! 🙂

  124. Debbie on January 13, 2009 at 10:44 am

    I also love pettiskirts, a victorian chair from an estate sale, and baseballs/mitts. These hats are adorable!

  125. Laurie on January 13, 2009 at 10:48 am

    I don’t really like props so much as colorful clothing (and hats) :0)

  126. shawnee on January 13, 2009 at 11:06 am

    I love fresh flowers!!! really bright ones are the best.

  127. Shannon on January 13, 2009 at 11:31 am

    My favorite prop is actually a silver plated tea set and a wicker doll basket — the little girls just LOVE it and so do bigger one’s too!~

  128. Casey Cooper on January 13, 2009 at 11:48 am

    I love these little hats! My favorite prop to use in a photo shoot are these silk gerber daisies that I bought ages ago when I first went to collage. I’ve never found any since that look as real as these and are precious used alone with the child or with other props too.

  129. Kerrie on January 13, 2009 at 11:58 am

    My favorite prop is an old green chair that I bought for $25. Most sessions start with a request to use the green chair in their session.

  130. Lori S. on January 13, 2009 at 12:34 pm

    My fav. is little girls in tutu’s and little boys holding baseball gloves! These hats are wonderful! I’m lovin’ this look!

  131. Trisha on January 13, 2009 at 12:37 pm

    My favorite prop is whatever a child or adult needs to make them smile-a toy, a hat, a pet, another person.

  132. Pam Davis on January 13, 2009 at 5:37 pm

    My favorite prop is a black rocking chair that is 50 years old just like me! I found this chair about 3 years ago in the barn at my parents home it was in sore need of repair. It now is the chair to fight over with my grandchildren and other children I have photographed.

  133. NiccoleCarol on January 13, 2009 at 12:48 pm

    I would have to say my favorite prop would have to be my 1930’s blue chair I have I use it probably 65% of my shoots. Thank you for the opportunity to win one of these adorable hats. They are precious, and would add to any newborn photoshoot.

  134. Jovana on January 13, 2009 at 12:58 pm

    My favorite is the old fashion blue chair I just bought! I love it!

  135. Jenn H. on January 13, 2009 at 12:59 pm

    Food! I love to let little ones loose with things like Watermelon or ice cream or lollipops.

  136. Teresa on January 13, 2009 at 1:08 pm

    Hats are my very favorite prop to use…I’m so excited to see these adorable hats, and can’t wait to order one (or five)! I also love tutus, rain boots, a vintage child’s chair, and old-fashioned wooden alphabet blocks. But hats are my go-to every single shoot.

  137. Beth B on January 13, 2009 at 1:22 pm

    My favorite prop is my new oriental style parasol! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!

  138. Beth B on January 13, 2009 at 1:23 pm

    First, I must say, I LOVE these hats and they just become a new favorite. But right now, my favorite prop is my new oriental style parasol! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!

  139. Jennifer Bresnahan on January 13, 2009 at 1:49 pm

    My favorite prop(s) are HATS!!!!!!! And I sooo want one of these! Pick me-pick me!!!

  140. Amanda Andrews on January 13, 2009 at 1:55 pm

    ohmygosh! i am such a HAT addict so i’d definately have to say hats. I just got a nessa hat and they are absolutely fabulous!

  141. Susan on January 13, 2009 at 2:25 pm

    actually hats ARE my favorite prop. I now have a boy and it’s the only way to accessorize him!

  142. julie on January 13, 2009 at 2:26 pm

    Love these , pick me pick me 🙂

  143. Andrea on January 13, 2009 at 2:41 pm

    I have an old fashioned kitchen/food scale that I like to put infants on (about 6 months) with just a shot of their bum and the scale. Love, love, love the hats!!

  144. Jennifer on January 13, 2009 at 2:43 pm

    WOW – these are too stinkin’ cute 🙂 My favorite props right now are vintage chairs – love them!!

  145. Jane Eaton Hamilton on January 13, 2009 at 2:46 pm

    Awww, they’re adorable. I’d love to rock my little guy shoots with that one in earth tones on the bottom row…on the cute model.

  146. Michelle on January 13, 2009 at 3:13 pm

    My favorite prop is a dog . . . big or little, they add interest to just about any image!

  147. Camille on January 13, 2009 at 3:42 pm

    a hat, of course!

  148. Sarah on January 13, 2009 at 3:52 pm

    My favorite recent prop was garland from the Christmas tree that looked like gold matte beads – the 17-month old I shot loved them!

  149. Annie on January 13, 2009 at 4:45 pm

    My favorite props are brightly colored objects. Whether it’s yellow rubber boots, a red umbrella, or a hot pink tutu. This hat would make a great addition!

  150. Rene on January 13, 2009 at 4:56 pm

    My favorite prop right now is a black chair I got for Christmas from my daughter and son-in-law. I do LOVE these hats, though! Would love to own one!

  151. Allyson Lyon on January 13, 2009 at 5:28 pm

    OMG I came upon this website from a twitter referral. You are my new idol. This is EXACTLY the photographer I hope to be someday. Your style is EXACTLY what I keep trying to achieve. Seriously I am in love.!! I can’t wait to see more. Allyson

  152. Sarah on January 13, 2009 at 5:50 pm

    Those hats are just TOO cute!! If only I could knit 🙂 But without those hats, my favourite pro right now would have to be chairs. They can be climbed on, sat on, hidden under….great for little ones and big ones!

  153. Rebecca Rodriguez on January 13, 2009 at 6:17 pm

    My favorite prop is bright colored chairs. I have a red and an orange one.

  154. Wendy Mayo on January 13, 2009 at 6:52 pm

    My favorite prop is a dog (or any pet). Is that a prop? I think so.

  155. Kristen Soderquist on January 13, 2009 at 7:08 pm

    I would say my favorite prop is chairs and baskets.

  156. Catherine Levy on January 13, 2009 at 7:18 pm

    I would have to say my favorite prop is anything I have on hand,like a child’s rocker, wooden horse, children’s table and chairs that sort of things. Beautiful hats that is for sure, thanks for this chance to win one :)! LOVE your blog too :)!Hugs,Catherinewww.mystampinggrounds.blogspot.comcatlevy@eastlink.ca

  157. Tracey Skadberg on January 13, 2009 at 8:01 pm

    A hat is my favorite!! Nothing beats it on a naked baby!

  158. Nicole S. on January 13, 2009 at 8:57 pm

    I LOVE hats! These are sooOOoo cute! Love them!

  159. Elizabeth Smith on January 13, 2009 at 9:36 pm

    My favorite prop is a red chair I just bought recently. It is old and distressed… and so perfect! The best part is that children can’t quite reach the ground when they are sitting in it. So, they tend to sit still for a few extra minutes.

  160. Litzie on January 13, 2009 at 10:00 pm

    Pretty hat. I love to use my son’s toys like his cars when I take his picture. I love capturing his photo while he’s just playing.

  161. Nancy on January 13, 2009 at 10:11 pm

    My favorite prop(s) are chairs. I’m sorry to say I cannot stop collecting chairs and, therefore, need a larger studio. I love hats, too!

  162. Michelle on January 13, 2009 at 10:28 pm

    Far out these are stunning hats – love the colours! Beautiful!

  163. dana on January 13, 2009 at 10:57 pm

    I love baskets for babies, tutus for little girls and lollypops for cranky pre-teens!

  164. Jana on January 13, 2009 at 11:02 pm

    My favorite prop, since i specialize in newborns, is Mom & Dad’s hands. After that…. maybe these hats. they are so cute. I saw an image recently which used one and i’ve wanted one(or two) ever since. Thanks for the connection Jodi.

  165. Charisse on January 14, 2009 at 2:17 am

    My favorite prop is anything special of the childs. However, I do ADORE these hats!

  166. erinTphotography on January 14, 2009 at 4:22 am

    Oh, a couch in the middle of a weeded field. But dang these hats, anything with texture, is just more eye candy, love it!

  167. Shana on January 14, 2009 at 6:46 am

    My favorite prop is a wild flower. It can be tucked behind the ear, or you can stick little noses in it for a sniff or have a little hand hold it out for mom. The hats are sooo cute.

  168. becky on January 14, 2009 at 6:49 am

    my favorite props are hats and pettis. My current fave hat is pink and has a long braided strand on both sides that my 9 month old loves to play with, put in mouth etc.

  169. Paula Herko on January 14, 2009 at 8:40 am

    I think my favorite prop would be scarfs… i love them, especially on little kids- SO cute!

  170. April Alcorn on January 14, 2009 at 9:52 am

    Hmmmmm i’m not a huge prop person sooooo i’d say my favorite prop would probably be a super cool old chair or something with a POP of color, like a petti or a funky hat!!! And just to add… OMG these hats are BEYOND adorable!!!

  171. Tracy on January 14, 2009 at 10:13 am

    I LOVE all baby props… but I will admit that hats are my FAVORITE! And I dont have a happy hat… yet! Nothing is sweeter than a newborn, naked, in a cute colorful hat! IMO 🙂

  172. Trisha on January 14, 2009 at 10:29 am

    Right now I am loving anything hand made…cocoons, leg warmers, and especially hats!

  173. Laura Anderson on January 14, 2009 at 11:24 am

    My favorite prop right now is my babystyle lulu lamb. Could you image one of these hat on a new little bundle of joy curled up in lulu? What a beautiful image it would be. Here hats are photolicious. Can’t wait to get one.

  174. Missy on January 14, 2009 at 1:57 pm

    Those hats are DARLING!! My favorite props are the pettiskirts…I wish I had more. Hats are really great too and I use them a lot. I’d love to win one of these!!

  175. desi on January 14, 2009 at 3:10 pm

    my favourite prop is a wrap. gotta love them wraps!these hats ROCK!

  176. Kara L on January 14, 2009 at 3:57 pm

    I love any type of long hat, wrap, or blanket – anything that can surround the face and pull your eye to the subject eyes….well, maybe that’s three things… 🙂

  177. Deene on January 14, 2009 at 4:10 pm

    I just bought one of these hats right before Christmas and would love another one so that I can say these hats are my favorite. One thing I really love and have only used once is a HUGE blow up heart from Urban Outfitters. I need to bust that out. I also LOVE LOVE LOVE umbrellas . . . but only used them once as well! I’m not a huge prop girl. My clients and their personalities are usually propish enough!

  178. Karen on January 14, 2009 at 4:55 pm

    I think my fav is my Sophie Belle sherbert colored pettiskirt.

  179. Tracey Aukes on January 14, 2009 at 5:07 pm

    A vintage wicker basket

  180. Christina Guivas on January 14, 2009 at 5:19 pm

    I love these hats and newborn pouches!!I would say my favorite prop would be my mini couch, it is perfect for little ones and can be covered with any kind of fabric!

  181. Candy on January 14, 2009 at 7:42 pm

    My favorite props are newborn hats! I love them!

  182. Kerry on January 14, 2009 at 11:05 pm

    My favorite props are hats and old furniture.

  183. Kim Crum on January 14, 2009 at 11:44 pm

    hats and flowers are my favorite props to use, but this one would be my new favorite!!

  184. Bree on January 14, 2009 at 11:56 pm

    I like weathered paint chipped chairs and any kid of hat. It makes their eyes pop.

  185. Jeri Hoag on January 15, 2009 at 1:27 am

    These hats are gorgeous! My favorite props for newborns are baskets. I have quite the collection. 🙂

  186. Kortney on January 15, 2009 at 10:54 am

    My favorite prop is a fluffy blanket to wrap babies in.

  187. Tiffany on January 15, 2009 at 1:56 pm

    oh by far my favorite prop is my pink velvet tufted back chair I found for $20. What find that was!

  188. Fran Barker on January 15, 2009 at 3:41 pm

    My favorite props are knitted blankets and hats!

  189. Jenn Bowen on January 15, 2009 at 4:21 pm

    Thanks for recommending Vanessa, Jodi! I ordered three hats and can’t wait to get them. 🙂 I’ll join in on the fun and maybe win another hat…LOL My favorite photography prop: TUTUS!

  190. Jenny Carroll on January 15, 2009 at 4:48 pm

    My most fave prop would be a great-looking chair.

  191. Sandy on January 15, 2009 at 4:56 pm

    Hats for girls or boys, and tutus for girls are my favorite props right now!!

  192. theArthurClan on January 15, 2009 at 6:08 pm

    These hats are amazing! I’m going to have to order one if I don’t win it. 🙂 My favorite prop would probably be…a hat. Love the unique look it can give to each photo.~Angie

  193. Kim Willard on January 15, 2009 at 6:22 pm

    I love those hats! I need one of those for my 3 year old granddaughter. My favorite props are all over my yard. We have lots of land with barns, tractor, and a pond. We have fun figuring out new places to try.

  194. Jennifer N on January 15, 2009 at 9:15 pm

    I actually like the anything knitted for newborn shoots. There is something about the cozy yarn and colors that you can use on the fresh baby skin. It looks so good. I like hats and cocoons. So if I won a hat. Yeah me… Thanks for the giveaway.

  195. Grethel Van Epps on January 15, 2009 at 10:08 pm

    Actually I LOVE hats as a prop!!.. I think the babies and not so babies look adorable in them.

  196. Stefani on January 15, 2009 at 10:32 pm

    I know,I know..I am probably the 195th person to say this but my favorite prop is a hat or knit item. The vibrance of the colors in the yarn next to the smooth skin of a baby is amazing. <>

  197. jessica stewart on January 16, 2009 at 12:00 am

    My favorite prop would be anything with a nice bright pop of color. Super cute hats- makes me wish I had a newborn…

  198. Becky M. on January 16, 2009 at 1:49 am

    I love tutu’s right now. Hats are a close 2nd though!

  199. Kansas A on January 16, 2009 at 1:51 am

    Oh my, the babies look so precious wearing these hats! I would never have thought to include a hat in my shots. I’m getting wonderful ideas from your blog and am thankful I stopped by :)As for my favourite prop… ummm well I just don’t use anything… but I think I’m going to now 🙂

  200. Brynne on January 16, 2009 at 2:48 am

    Holy crap those are cute!My favorite prop for babies is a tulle tutu and nothing else… so sweet.

  201. Melanie Meyer on January 16, 2009 at 3:28 am

    I can’t say that I really have a favorite prop but I do love anything funky, different, with a lot of color. I don’t always get to do things “my way”. I cater to what my clients want, but for myself personally… it could be a burlap bag that I pass while walking through Royal King that catches my eye. lol I actually bought 2 of those last week for my kids to jump in while being photographed.

  202. Andrea on January 16, 2009 at 8:19 am

    Lately, my favorite prop is an old wrought iron bench I found in the trash. I also love hats and garlands.

  203. Renee on January 16, 2009 at 10:57 am

    My favorite prop is a red vinyl stool with a back from the 70’s. Looks like a high chair from a diner.

  204. Brandi Stimpson on January 16, 2009 at 5:43 pm

    I love these hats. I so hope to be picked. My favorite prob is a knitted wrap I have and of course cute funky hats. I just love them. Thank you for the opportunity.

  205. Laraine Davis on January 16, 2009 at 11:46 pm

    My favorite prop is a childs pink chair that I found in an antique shop. The paint isn’t perfect, and it makes the best chair for little princesses to sit on. I would love to win the hat – 🙂

  206. Aubry Canales on January 17, 2009 at 11:34 am

    Probably to late to enter, but I LOVE using baby’s monogrammed stuff that mom brings…..personalized things are so precious. 🙂 I LOVE THESE hats by the way!!!

  207. Kristy Jo on January 17, 2009 at 4:51 pm

    Oh, I would love to win this!!! I have been searching for one of these adorable hats. And no luck until now. This would be such a great added tool to my new photography biz. Sincerely from the heart, KJ

  208. Cathy Schneidenbach on January 18, 2009 at 10:20 am

    I would have to say that my favorite prop is one of my antique baskets!

  209. Natalie on January 19, 2009 at 4:49 pm

    Oh I just saw these the other day and so need one!

  210. Tiffany Austin on January 19, 2009 at 5:36 pm

    Ouch. Should have bout earlier! They’re $54 now!

  211. Vanessa Corral on January 19, 2009 at 6:51 pm

    I love using Kaya Eve tutu skirts on little girls.

  213. Lisa Crawford on November 3, 2010 at 8:20 pm

    my favorite prop would have to be a mini bath tub! Hats are awesome too, but i didnt have anything half as cute as these hats when my baby was a baby!

    • Jon-Paul Dolby on June 15, 2012 at 3:28 am

      Hi,I just wondered if you would be so kind and tell me where you found your little white prop bath tub please.Kind Regards,Jon
