baby wraps for newborn photography When it comes to newborn photography, the props and accessories and the inspiration are endless. One essential prop for most photographers is are newborn wraps. Soft, cozy wraps and blankets can be snuggled around your newborn, offering comfort for them, as well as a cover over diapers for a polished look. If you’re in the market for beautiful new newborn accessories, stretch knit wraps, stretch lace wraps, mohair and cheesecloth are popular choices. These types of wraps can be used as a full baby wrap, diaper wrap, baby blanket or cocoon. If you’re new to newborn photography and aren’t sure which option you’d prefer, we’ll show off the details of each material style for you here!

Stretch Knit Wraps

Stretch Knit Wraps are  made of a soft, super stretchy open weave; made for ultimate comfort and breathability for your new model. They measure 60 in x 18 in unstretched. Stretch knit wraps have a more textured style than cheesecloths, and are able to be stretched super wide for a tight swaddle. We recommend knit wraps as the best unisex wrap choice as well.

Stretch Lace Wraps

Stretch lace wraps are an alternative stretchy wrap option that offers a more elegant and classy style than the rugged look of stretch knit wraps. They are made of a soft lace fabric and are perfect for swaddling your new model. Available in 19 colors, you can find bright and bold or earth tone shades to match whatever portrait theme you have in mind. These wraps are very stretchy, and measure approximately 27 in x 39 in when unstretched.
