1. Tell us about your business! What kind of products/props do you offer?
What makes them stand out from the rest?
I started making headbands
and girl accessories. Now I am also sewing! I like the organic look. I try to
se most of the time either preserved/dry or handmade flowers or materials. I
like to think that my products are unique! I try to follow the trend but I like
to design my pieces adding my own style. I love a pop of color!!!
2. How did you get started in the prop vendor industry?
Well I started my business
as a hobby to keep me sane from taking care of my newborn twins all day :). I
wanted to feel I was doing something since I have worked all my life. I first
contacted the photographer that shot my twins session. She was so kind to give
e the opportunity with her! She even let me get the props back. Then around 3
months later I got in touch with another photographer to do a trade but still
my product wasn't exclusively for newborn photography. She then asked me if I
could make a tieback for her. I didn't know what that was! Well I got to work
and created around 7 tiebacks for her, right there I switched to newborn
3. Where do you find your inspiration for your creations?
I have a lot of scraps of
fabric that my mom has sent me. She is a fashion designer and she sends me from
time to time fabric that she thinks I could use. I let the fabric inspire me. I
let the colors and textures to tell me what to do. It is a hit or miss but I wouldn’t
change my style.
4. What is YOUR favorite product/prop that you offer?
That is a tough one. I
love almost everything. Each item is my baby :). I would probably say that my
favorite if I had to pick one would be my Haylie tieback and my Blu tieback.
5. Do you work with a group of photographers to photograph your products?
If so, name your 3 faves and what you love about their work.
I have worked with quite a few. It all depends on what they have on the books. I wouldn’t be able to pick 3 favorites!! There’s so many I love to work with. If I need to mention only 3 I would say…
Maricela Wilson from Abba Color Photography-First photographer that gave a chance. I still work with her and she’s always willing to take photos for me. No matter what it is that needs to be photographed.
Kathleen Lindemann Photography- I designed my Haylie tieback for her and up to date has been my best seller. I will say that because of the amazing "in use" photo that helped my business get noticed.
Leah Harms Photography- This lady just have a special place in my heart. She is an amazing photographer and such a sweet person to work with!! No matter what I send her she always makes my items to look exactly how I envisioned them on a baby.
6. Please share with us your top 5 favorite images featuring your creations.
Why are they your favorites?
Cris is simply awesome! I
almost couldn’t believe that was one of my items.
My Blu tieback… It is one
of my favorite items and Leah just captured its essence flawlessly.
One of the first photos I
received when I started out. Luna Foto just captures moments in life. I adore
I had so much fun creating
this custom order for Susan Scott! My second best seller thanks to her awesome
image. I love that is something different than what you normally see in newborn
This is just such a
beautiful and fantastic image of my best seller. I think this photo marks a beginning.
The beginning of the next step for my business.

8. Tell us about YOU! Who are you other than a prop vendor?
I am originally from Puerto Rico. I moved to the states 4 years ago. I love to be the life of the party and to make people laugh. Very honest (sometimes too much) and willing to help everybody and anybody that asks me to. I studied art for 6 years before I graduated high school. I’ve always been creative and impulsive :). I get bored easily so I like to learn new things constantly.
