The Ultimate Blogger Photo Prop Wishlist

22 May 2015

Ultimate is probably too strong of a word. But how often do you see bloggers with their beautiful photographs, filled with pretty props that make everything work perfectly together. I wracked my brains and scaled the internet and rounded up some pretty cool items that will help bring your blog photos from drab to fab
Reclaimed Wood Tray - Anthropologie | Faux Fur Rug - Adairs | Marble Ceramic Plate - H&M | Life Journal - Kikki.K | White Horse Candle - White Horse Home | A2 Chalkboard - Typo | Home Pennant Flag - Typo |
A lot of these items give off an especially luxurious feel, especially the marble tray, faux fur rug and the candle. These can be styled in photographs to show off trinkets and beauty items. The journal is something pretty to add to photos as an extra bit of lovely. 
I really love the reclaimed wood tray because you could photograph close enough so as not to see it's a tray, just as a lovely wooden background. Perfect for rustic shots of food or any DIYs you've created. The Home banner is a nice touch to have sitting in on a photograph, and the chalkboard can be used in the background, with writing or without, or even as the base for your main prop to be photographed on. 
So tell me, what is one of your must have photo props, when you take a photo for your blog or instagram??

 I'm currently loving white backgrounds for mine, but would love to add some marble in eventually.
Have a great weekend! Cya! xx

  11. I always wonder how bloggers have such different pretty backgrounds for so many different posts. I always thought they just had a lot of paper lying around. Hahaha. I tend to use scarfs or a white fabric for my props but I must try to find a chalkboard and wood tray! Maybe a corkboard too!
