Making pictures stand out with props ✨

Taking pictures is easy but what isn’t easy is taking quality pictures. As I have been experimenting with my layouts, props and contents I have improved a lot, especially since blogging and seeing so much inspiration on the web. Since I have been getting better shots my Instagram follow is increasing, have your pictures improved leading to catching people’s attention more? I thought that I would share with you some prop ideas, ones I use or aim to use, what works well for your pictures? I am useless at taking pictures in the day with natural lighting so my first few help on those days.

What props do you like to use? I find seasonal events so helpful with what I should use, Christmas was so easy when it came to taking pictures. I am starting to stock up on some spring items like fake flowers… I do aim to grow some as well once the weather cheers up! For now fake ones will work a treat. I have started to write these down in my bullet journal so I can mix up what I use by ticking each one off.
