A blog from under the Mulberry Tree

The lovely ladies from AnK have asked me to  be a 'guest blogger' for this Madeit Monday. Quickly following their request I was met with the task of picking a theme for my mini blog.... only for Kristy to quickly point out that I could follow the theme of photography! Woohoo! I'm right into the swing of all things photographically themed at the moment. With the re-opening of my business as Mulberry Photo Art coming in June, I have invested quite a lot in new props & accessories... many of which have been located and sourced from Madeit! 

Of course one of my main made it loves is AnK Bowtique. Mulberry Photo Art will be offering 'Mini Pettiskirt Princess Photo Shoots' after re-opening.... exclusively styled by AnK.....needless to say my ever growing pettiskirt & hair accessory combination will need on going replenishment... totally totally excited about their new {vintage celebration range} of pettis soon to be released...and can't wait to photograph some beautiful little models in these during our combined photo shoot on the 8th of July.

I have also recently added another beautiful hobby horse from Calamity Bolt to my collection... already having had the gorgeous 'Buster' in the photography stable for quite a while and after the birth of my daughter I felt as though we needing to filly it up a bit... so I purchased another one of Elke's deliciously different hand made horses.

PS Whilst you're there check out the gorgeous photography courtesy of Elke's husband! Just stunning!
Love love love.

Bunting is excellent too. You can tie it up anywhere... including outside between trees. Last week I purchased a lovely green and pink bunting length from Sammy Jo. GREAT VALUE. Much longer than what you would usually find for this price...highly recommend if you're after bunting... exceptional quality!

Another prop that is a little out of the box is the good ol' mobile. Great to dangle over newborns... or to shoot through with depth of field focused on the main subject to create a nice 'whimsy' effect. I like these pretty pink hearts from Ruby's House.

And last but certainly not least... the knitted head wear... these have become must have props for any newborn photographer of late... I just adore this little pink beanie & cocoon from Cub Designs... digging the little wings too in this photo!

Anyway.. that's me! Hope you enjoyed looking at a few of my photography prop picks from Madeit... I could also go on to mention the extremely popular Oopsidaisi & Georgie Girl creations... but they go without saying  don't they? 

Off for another busy week.... preparing  for the 'AnK Next Mulberry Model' Shoot coming up in July...... can't wait!!! It's going to be bigger and better than last year!

Great job Phoebe. Love Calamity bolt, I only wish my girls were younger so I could give them one. I did manage to get two for my neices though and maybe I should just get one as a decoration in my house.....
