Baby Hot Air Balloon

I think we all wish we were crafty enough to “whip up” awesome photo props like this on the spur of the moment!  What a powerful combination to have the prop making skills along with the photography expertise.  Very impressive and it looks like it was a lot of fun!

This was a session that I did for a beautiful baby girl with some props I had whipped up at home (crown and hot air balloon). I love to make props. It’s my favorite way to relax. I wanted it to be very dreamy and whimsical, so I paid attention to all the details and the styling to bring my vision to life. My beautifully planned session was almost ruined when the heat caused my baloon to expand in my hot car, and I froze my butt off in near-arctic temperatures with my air conditioning on full blast to contain the damage the whole way to the session! It all worked out in the end though, seeing my beautiful little subject tucked inside her dreamy hot air balloon, fast asleep.

Gear Used:
Canon 7D, 35mm 1.4L, 85mm 1.2L, 100mm macro 2.8L
