My all time favourite newborn photography prop outfit has to be these little footed rompers
I get all fuzzy when I look at them, like when you see a puppy and your heart just melts, sooooo cute!!
I have probably made hundreds of these over the last few years, and each photographer seems to manage to put their own twist to the photo, making it look unique.
The little pajamas all have long sleeves, with a button opening at the back, and a matching bonnet.
Most of the rompers are knit in soft fluffy alpaca, that I brush before shipping, for extra fuzziness!
The outfits are also handknit by me, in sizes from Newborn (which fits a baby under 15 days old) to a sitter size baby (approx 9 months old). The suits are meant to fit fairly snugly, not loose like commerical pajamas. This is so that the lovely baby chubby contours are emphasised in the photos.
Please note that these are all meant for use as a photography prop, and are not designed (or practical) for sleepwear.
Over the past few years, I have made these little outfits as all kinds of animals. I have those that are currently the most popular listed in my shop, but feel free to contact me if you would like something different or special.
Some examples of the footed onesies that I have made include:
Some of the animals are given little tails, where appropriate, from a bunny pom pom tail, to a wide fox brush-tail, a plaited cow tail and a lion tail with a fuzzy end!
Although the rompers are knit in either brushed or smooth alpaca (because they feel so soft and snuggly against a newborns skin), they can, of course, be knitted in a synthetic yarn if your baby is allergic to natural yarns, or you simply prefer not to use animal product.
I am always up for a challenge, happy to create a new outfit. Some of my recent favourites are these gingerbread men
for Christmas. The suit has a crochet collar, big red buttons, and 'icing' around the sleeves, and on the hat. Then a fun crochet green bow tie is added just for fun!
And lets not forget the Santa suits
, just perfect for your babys first Christmas. These could also be made as little elf outfits, with a striped hat, with a long tail and pom pom, and the suit made in greens and reds.
