As many of you know my now, I’m completely addicted to buying props. This is an item I’ve wanted for so many months and after trawling through ebay, antique stores and the likes, I got nowhere. Sure, they had suitcases but they were either too damaged, or just reproductions. I wanted an original vintage case and believe it or not, they are very difficult to find, so I’m really excited to have one! Everybody that knows me knows I’ve been on the look out (I’ve had everybody else searching too!) and at a show I was at lately, a friend pointed out a stall that had vintage cases displaying her jewellery. I honestly didn’t think she would let any of them go, but when I explained what I wanted it for, she sold one to me. The one I purchased is so perfect! It definitely needs a little airing and cleaning before I put a precious little baby inside, but it will be ready to head over to the studio soon!
I’ve added another amazing prop to my collection. This beautiful red wagon! I have been on the look out for this specific item for quite a while, but I struggled to find the perfect size for newborn sessions. They were either too big and fit two toddlers in them, or too small and barely fit a doll inside. At long last, I found it and made a 3 hour journey to pick it up. Although I have yet to use it, I know for a fact it was worth it and i’m excited to find the perfect little boy to dress up and pose in this cart.
