New born photographers from coast to coast are discovering the pure, simple magic of Living Felt MC-1 Felting Batts and we love what they are doing with them! Some call us looking for the wool “fluff” for new born props, because they have see the brilliant baby pics taken by their peers.
Christy Wallis is a New Born Photographer in San Diego, California who works pure magic with our felting batts. She is a talented photographer who is trained to work with new born babies ensuring they are safe and supported during the shoots.
Christy was turned on to our batts by a fellow newborn photographer whom she admired, and we are hearing that she and others like our earthy color tones and our heathered batts. Since little babies are touching the wool, everyone loves that the fibers have been washed with an eco-friendly soap and have not been processed with harsh chemicals [the wool is non-carbonized]. The dyes are the same as used in everyday clothing and this wool is from sheeps raised on US farms, it is dyed and carded right here in the USA.
While the use of the wool in new born photography is not “felting”, it is a great way for someone who is a felter or a fiber artist to contribute their passions to a new baby in the family.
With just 2-4oz of our wool batting, the sweet new baby photos are accented with wonderful, natural fibers and textures.
It is fun to see how different new born photographers are incorporating not only our wool batts for new baby pictures, but also other fiber art that has been knitted or woven. Shara Bachman of Bachmanville Photography in Orange County, CA is another talented photographer indeed. She books photo sessions for babies that are just days old.
Brenda Anderson is a new born photographer in Florida who also enjoys our wooly fluff as a prop for her photo shoots.
Jill Singer used MC-1 Willow to create this precious bear bonnet for her new born photos.
Rhiannon Logsdon creates wonderful and fantastical imagery for new borns, children and families. We love how she uses our wool with these baby photos.
If you are not near one of these talented women but would like your baby photographed with some of our felting batts, consider sharing this post with your new born photographer. They can start with as little as 2oz of our MC-1 Wool Batts.
