Prop Ideas for Summer Seattle Maternity Photography Session at Newcastle Beach Park

Last year we had the pleasure of photographing the Ferreira family for their awesome prop-filled Seattle maternity photography session. This super sweet family from Brazil was full of creative ideas to celebrate their soon-to-be-born daughter. They’re a rockstar example of a great way to incorporate props into your family photo shoot.

We always encourage families to bring personal items and fun props to make their photos more unique and customized.

The Ferreira family not only had their ultrasounds and baby clothes but they even brought along parenting books in their native language of Portuguese! Such a cute idea :D We love showing off props like this because it helps to tell the story of what’s going on behind the photos - they were not simply pregnant and about to have a baby like it’s no big deal...they were about to become parents and they had been researching and shopping and going to doctors appointments. All these props help to tell that story and these photos will help to trigger their memories of all those details of this crazy new and exciting time in their life.

So here’s to you Ferreira family - a little Throwback Thursday post to celebrate how clever and creative you were with your Seattle maternity photo shoot props! You guys are so awesome. Xx Chamonix & the Happy Film Company ladies.
