Photographer Props Sets - Ready to Ship!

Linda Maintanis, knitting, warwick, ri, mrsmay, governor francis farms

Phew! What a month it has been. When I took my sticks and yarn to Saint Martin to build a chest of props I had no idea of what I was getting into. A month later I have finished a dozen sets of 6 pieces each and am ready to release the newest line of ready-to-wear props created just for baby photographers.

The 6 piece set includes a MrsMay Yarns' original design Peapod, and another MrsMay original, the Swaddleskin, in a coordinating shade. Within your color selection 4 hats round out the wardrobe; a fluffy Beanie, 2 variations of the Umbilical Cord Hat and a unique Stocking Hat.

Sets are available in 5 color families, PINKS, BLUES, NEUTRALS, HOLIDAY REDS and HOLIDAY GREENS.

MrsMay reveals Photographer Prop Sets!

Photographers have been contacting me for months with inquiry to purchase my handknit props. As seen at Heidi Hope Photography, their demand keeps growing. I set aside my other projects and began to develop a set that would arm their prop-chest.

MrsMay Yarns is proud to offer handknit newborn photography prop sets. Created as a resource for busy photographers to build their chest of props, all pieces are handknit by MrsMay using the finest organic, handspun, hand-dyed fiber.

The focal point of the set is an original design by MrsMay, the Peapod. The Peapod comes with another MrsMay original, the SwaddleSkin, in a color which will co-ordinate with your Peapod so you can swaddle a baby snugly before sliding into the pod.

4 hats come with your set, an infant Umbilical Cord Beanie, an infant Fluffy Beanie, an infant Stocking Cap and a standard acrylic infant Umbilical Cord Beanie.

Baby Girl: Pink solids and blends say GIRL out loud!

Baby Boy: Blue, Blue, Blue with light and dark shades too!

Baby Neutrals: Yummy shades of cream, green, yellow, whites...sometime soft, sometimes vibrant!

Holiday: Red and White, Green and White, and combos of any of the above...the holiday look that made MrsMay famous!
