When I first started out as a Newborn Photographer in Toronto, Ontario I struggled to find affordable props for my business. I would see the most beautiful items online but they would be from vendors located in the US, Australia and Europe and with the current state of the Canadian dollar the conversion and shipping fee's would simply make it not feasible.
I was determined to find top quality newborn photography props from within Canada and so my journey began.
After running my business in Toronto for 4 years now I have discovered some incredible suppliers and I want to share them with you so you can begin to save big too!
By sourcing your photography needs via these vendors you can literally save 100's of dollars over the years!
1. Posing Bags + Positioners // Studio Baby
Studio Baby is where I sourced my Travel Poser and Posing Positioners.
Great prices and great quality make it an easy recommendation. They run frequent offers and sales so if you time it right you can save yourself a little extra on top!
I have used the same poser for 4 years, lugged it to 100+ sessions and it is still as good as the day it arrived.
Fast delivery and great customer service too.
2. Floral Bonnets + Crowns + Wool Fluff // Fashion Touch Photography Prop Boutique
Now if you are in Canada this is your #1 stop for those incredibly beautiful sitter session floral bonnets!
If you have never used them then you just HAVE to go and check them out.
This store also supplies the best wool fluff around for both basket stuffers and blanket type layers.
Elena from Fashion Touch Photography & Prop Boutique is absolutely lovely and quick to respond to any of your queries.
She has been very generous and offered the readers of this blog a special

3. Wraps + Mohair Sets // TinyTot Prop Shop
Michelle from TinyTot Prop Shop is one of the most helpful and friendly vendors I have come across.
I source all of my stretch knit & jersey knit wraps from her and have never regretted it.
The product arrives fast and each item I have brought has lasted years.
If you love those super soft mohair bonnets and wraps TinyTot Prop Shop is also your go to place.
Beautiful colours and matching combos always available.
4. Rompers + Bonnets + Silk Wraps // Natural Whispering Wonders

6. Maternity Gowns + Tiebacks // DewDrop Photography Shop
If you photograph maternity sessions and dream of sourcing the gowns within Canada then look no further as DewDrop Photography Props has you covered.
This is also one of my favourite stores for beautiful headbands and tiebacks.
Created with great style and taste there is sure to be a tieback that matches your photography style.
7. Tiebacks // Pretty Petite Petals
Pretty Petite Petals sells beautiful, dainty tiebacks.
The owner of the store (Tracy) is a talented newborn photographer herself and therefore these products are a great design and great fit.
You can never have too many pretty tiebacks in this industry!
