1. Tell us about your business! What kind of products/props do you offer?
What makes them stand out from the rest?
I specialize in baby
knits, although I also do headbands, tiebacks and some sewn props. I am drawn
to classic, vintage styles. I love that baby knitwear gives photos a timeless
feel. I am a perfectionist in my work and believe in great customer service.
2. How did you get started in the prop vendor industry?
My grandma taught me to
knit as a child, and I grew up surrounded by crafters, specifically my mom. I
picked up my knitting needles again when I was pregnant with my son and knit
him an outfit for his newborn photo shoot. Our photographer (Zoe at Snowy Photography)
told me I should start a business selling props. Over 3 years later, here I am!
3. Where do you find your inspiration for your creations?
Almost anywhere! Often in
nature and my kids. I also have a great stash of really old vintage knitting
books that I love to look through.
4. What is YOUR favorite product/prop that you offer?
I love knitting bonnets,
they are my favorite. Whether a simple knit with wool or an intricate pattern
in angora, they are a great way to change up the look of a session.
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've been fortunate to work with Keri Meyers, and I never tire of seeing my creations in her gorgeous photos. I have also loved working with Crystal Lee Photography, Katy Brunkard Photography, and Organic Bebe Photography. I have made friends with some wonderful and talented local photographers, including Emily Leeman Photography and Rochelle at Two Twigs Photography.
6. Please share with us your top 5 favorite images featuring your creations.
Why are they your favorites?
This was so difficult as I
love each and every image shared with me of my pieces in use. I truly
appreciate when photographers take the time to share images with me or write me
a little note telling me that they loved the things I made for them.

8. Tell us about YOU! Who are you other than a prop vendor?
I've been married for
almost 10 years and I have a 6 year old daughter and 3 year old son. I love
coffee, being outdoors, reading, and anything chocolate. I have a background in
elementary education and psychology, and at heart I'm just kind of a nerdy introvert
with a wicked sense of humour.
