Win Photography Props from Baby & Me Boutique

Hi Epic Edits readers. I’m excited to be here and have the chance to introduce myself and my shop. My name is Jill and my shop is called Baby & Me Boutique. I sell a variety of crocheted items, but what I would like to share with you today are my photography props. I make all sorts of fun props for baby photo shoots: cocoons, hammocks, beanies, booties, and more! Many of my products are available in sizes for young children as well.

Good props are an essential for every child photographer. I love photography, although I’ll be the first to admit I’m not that great at it. However, with props like these even I can take a good picture. My props add a creative and professional touch to photos. And in the hands of a true professional (such as the talanted Shanda Leigh who provided the pictures you see here, and many of you I’m sure) they make the most gorgeous photos! Cocoons in particular are a growing trend and I offer several types in my shop.


I truly enjoy making the things I sell, which lets me keep my prices low and feel good about it. I love to see my products go to good use and create beautiful pictures. I hope you’ll stop by and take a peek! http://womenwhodoitall.etsy.com

GIVEAWAY CONTEST DETAILS

[tweetmeme][Brian here] First of all, a big thanks to Jill for offering up some free product to the readers of Epic Edits! She’s offered to give two winners any single item from her shop, so we have two ways that you can enter the contest (you can enter both ways and we’ll pick one winner from each).

DEADLINE: May 13, 2010

  1. POST YOUR BEST BABY/CHILD PHOTO
    Place a photo (or link to a photo) in the comments below of your best baby/child photo. Post only one photo, and it must be your own. This is a judged competition, so post your very best.
  2. TELL US WHICH ITEM YOU LIKE BEST
    Hop over to Jill’s shop and browse through her products. Then leave a comment below telling us which item(s) you like best. The winner will be a random selection (and be sure to leave this as a separate comment if you’re entering a photo too).

So there you go — two ways to enter for a chance at some free props!

December Challenge: Day 18 – Rex Auer

Rex Auer

I already shot one of Rex, but I didn’t get much of his face in the photo the last time. That one was more about the masked figure and his shadow than anything else. This one is a little more about my son Rex.

I shot this at ISO 3200 with the intent of converting to black and white. All that “grain” in this shot was grown right in the camera. The nice thing about using a high ISO (in addition to looking decent in b/w) is that you can shoot little hams like Rex in low light without waiting for the flash to catch up. I took about 80 shots of him within a 10 minute window.
