Although we have a pretty good selection of toys in our studio, we really love it when people bring in their own toys, props and costumes for their kids to use during their shoot. It really helps make the photos more personal and representative of that stage in their life. They can look back in years to come and remember how much their child used to love that teddy or ball! It works particularly well for the 2nd Cherubs shoot as they are at that age where they are really interested in toys and doing things, and it brings out some brilliant expressions. Unusual props are also great to inspire some different images. Here are some recent photos where people have bought in their own things.
