Announcement   At Hello September, you will find heirloom quality baby knits. These items are ideal as newborn photo props, baby photo props, and new baby gifts. Be sure to check out my best sellers, which are knit newborn pants, knit newborn shorts, newborn bonnets, newborn rompers, newborn overalls, and sitter photography props such as knit baby pants, knit baby bonnets, and knit baby dresses. I make newborn boy photo props and newborn girl photo props. You’ll find a variety of these simple, organic knit photo props in my shop. I have something to suit every need.

I enjoy working with natural and organic fibers, such as organic cotton, wool, merino wool, mohair, angora, and artisan hand-spun fibers.

Unique textures and lace patterns, combined with high quality fibers provide you with new and exciting knits for newborns and babies, which is what my vision is all about. I’m always coming up with something new to offer my customers. It keeps everyone from getting bored with the seeing the same items in every photo!

I have been a fiber enthusiast since I was 9, and an Etsy seller since 2009, when I started my business after discovering how much I enjoyed making baby and toddler items for my then one-year-old daughter. I started out selling hats and fun accessories for kids, and created several best sellers in that time.

When my second daughter was born, I started dabbling with making newborn items for her first photo session. I was hooked! I offered a few pieces for sale on my Facebook page (http://www.etsy.com/helloseptemberprops), and they were quickly snatched up. Encouraged, I made a few more newborn items of this nature, and realized how much I loved coming up with new, delicate, tiny designs for newborn photographers.

What started out as a simple crochet business making kids hats has since flourished into a newborn photo prop business, with most children's items slowly being phased out while I focus on my true passion-babies.

I love working one-on-one with photographers both local and around the world, and seeing their visions come to life. Seeing beautiful images of my work in use brings a smile to my face every time. Knowing that parents purchase my items to keep as heirloom items for their new babies is something I am very proud of.

Please note, that unless an item is specifically marked as READY TO SHIP, and located in that section, that each item is specially made for each customer, and requires a 2-3 week turn-around time. If you need your item for a photo session, please contact me before purchase, to ensure that the item can arrive in time. If you are planning a session around an item you are purchasing, please give yourself an extra week to ensure safe arrival. Customer service is very important to me, but I simply cannot guarantee short delivery times. Not only do my items take time to make, as they are hand-knit, but once an item is shipped, the delivery time is entirely out of my hands. Please know that Mother Nature, customs delays, and holidays can all interfere with quick delivery and plan accordingly.

If an item is marked Ready to Ship (or RTS), then it will ship within 24 hours of purchase. My usual Post Office run is at 2:30 CST, so if you time it right, you may get same day shipping. If you are in a rush and want to ensure that your item goes out ASAP, please contact me before purchase and I can make sure to get your item packaged and shipped quickly.

Want to make your own items? Be sure to check out my section titled “Crochet Patterns,” and see if there is anything you like! Coming soon: “Knit Patterns,” but for now, I am perfecting these designs before offering them out into the world. Quality patterns take time to create, so I appreciate the patience while you wait for new designs to be released!

About

Why Natural Fibers Make the Best Newborn Photo Props

Newborn photo prop shops have been experiencing a booming business in the last few years. Babies first photos have transformed into a pure art form, and props help bring those visions to life.

Everyone has different tastes and expectations for their newborn photos. For a long time, it was believed that all natural fibers were itchy and uncomfortable. The last thing you want on delicate newborn skin, right? This belief brought on an onslaught of bulky props all made with the same materials in each shop.

I’m here to tell you that this doesn’t have to be the case! Natural fibers can actually be ideal for new babies and the perfect props for newborn photos. With the right materials, it IS possible to create stunning, SOFT, unique items for babies.

Natural photo props can add an organic look to your newborn photos. This helps you create the clean, simple settings that allow a new baby to be the star of the show. They help bring out the delicate, natural beauty of a new baby, without overpowering the image.

With a combination of delicate stitches and natural fibers, I can create the perfect props for your newborn sessions. One of the most popular, my Sweet Daisy set, is created from a luxurious angora yarn, and a simple – but stunning – stitch pattern. See a photo of this set in the slideshow at the top of this page to see just how perfect the pairing is.

Some of my favorite items to make include newborn bonnets, pants, shorts, rompers, overalls, and hats. These are all knit from quality, natural fibers, and help create stunning images for new parents to cherish forever.

-How I Got Started in the Newborn Photo Prop Business-

I have always had a creative side. Growing up, I struggled for years trying to find a way to embrace this creativity. I couldn’t draw, despite my father’s natural ability. I had no rhythm at all, despite my mother being a drummer. I couldn’t sing, like the rest of my family.

One day, my grandmother sat me down and taught me some basic crochet stitches, because she said I needed something to do with my hands. I loved it that first day. Still, I wanted more. Over time, I did what all kids do, and I forgot all about my love of crochet, as my materials gathered dust in the back corner of my closet. During that time I dabbled with jewelry making, sewing, polymer clay, tie dye, and all sorts of other crafts.

I didn’t honestly come back to my hooks and yarn until I was much older. When my daughter was born one Washington winter, I found myself in desperate need of some winter hats for her bald little head. With very little budget for a quality hat, and a strong distaste for the “cheap” hats I found in department stores, I decided to give crocheting another try. I was HOOKED! (←- pun intended). I made her several hats, and then moved on to making hats for my friends’ kids. A year later, I opened my Etsy shop with the goal of keeping myself motivated to create new items. As the sales started rolling in, I changed my goals. I wanted to be able to help support my family. As it was, we were struggling to pay the bills and put food on the table, and I felt like my creative side was the perfect way to bring in a little extra money.

Within a few years, I was bringing in enough money to actually help my family. I did this through various avenues, but without Etsy, I wouldn’t have even been able to start.

When I was pregnant with my second daughter, I decided I wanted to try knitting her some hats and props for her newborn photo session. I’d learned to knit a few years before, but never done anything more advanced than a scarf for personal use. Knitting quickly became an obsession, and before I knew it, she had enough knit props for THREE photo sessions. I posted some of them on my Facebook page (facebook.com/helloseptemberprops), and they were quickly snatched up. I made more, and posted those. Again, they were a big hit. I decided then and there to re-brand my shop, and focus solely on photo props. The majority of my items are now knit, which I feel just has a better fit and drape for tiny newborns. However, some of my more delicate crochet items are still being featured in the shop, as I feel that they also make a great addition to my line and to your photos.

I hope you’ll choose me for your knit prop needs. I have several years of experience creating items for babies and children, a knowledge of what fits and doesn’t fit on new babies, and HUNDREDS of satisfied customers to prove it. Just check out my feedback to see for yourself! I would love to create a trusting business relationship with each and every one of the photographers that gives me a chance.

Please be sure to connect with me on Facebook (www.facebook.com/helloseptemberprops) to learn more.

Thank you for reading,
Angie

    My dream to live a simpler life started here, with the ability to work from home and stay home with my daughter-my inspiration. Many thanks to my grandmother for teaching me the joy of crochet. Without her, none of this would have been possible.
