The Most Exquisite Handmade Holiday Photo Props & Accessories For Baby

It’s that time of year again. Many of us who do the holiday photo card thing have already booked the photo shoot or have grand plans of doing it all ourselves (me). I’ll admit this is the first time I am actually organized enough to get them done and mailed out the door in time. Even when we didn’t do photo cards, we always gave framed photos and collages (this year I have a few other photo gift ideas up my sleeve), so stocking up on a few festive accessories was a must. That and having them for dressing up for all of those special occasions that come with the holidays.

I’ll admit it: I LOVE dressing up my babies (okay toddlers now), every chance I get. There are worse offenses, to be sure. (They may argue this point years down the road, as they beg me to take down the 8 x 10 picture of them in a reindeer diaper set off of the wall, but I’m willing to take that risk.)

I’ve curated a selection of ridiculously cute options for you to agonize over (tough choices), in both patterns and ready to ship items. Enjoy!

    Is 3 years old (my boy) too old for this outfit? Because I REALLY want to dress him and his sister in this epic cuteness for some pictures. We’re staying at home on Christmas day…how adorable would they be opening up their presents and running around in these?
