Our Company 

Newborns can be a challenging customer. Their tender skin needs a soft and protective cushion on which to rest, whether they are feeding, sleeping or posing for their very first photo shoot. We have developed a faux fur that's so silky and comforting, babies fall to sleep before the first click of the camera.

Our own hard-to-please newborn photography prop designers search high and low for the best raw materials so that each fur, newborn posing fabric, swaddling wrap or baby headband is one-a-kind and completely exclusive. All of our custom photography props are cruelty-free, hypoallergenic and durable enough to last for years.

Newborn photographers and new parents alike love our newborn props! We are currently sought after as the leading producer of custom designed newborn photography props in the United States.  Our props have been used by Carrie Underwood and the Jonas family and have won many product endorsements from industry leading newborn photographers.

Meet the Leaders of CPP

At the age of 16, Kerri was given the opportunity to manage a restaurant in her hometown in New York. Even at that young age, she was continually filled with ideas on how to change the business and make it grow into something better. The skills she developed then would prepare her for opening and growing her own company.

When Kerri is approached to share her company story, she usually says that she was solving a problem.  Kerri and her husband had a precious baby girl and were having newborn photos taken. She searched the internet for unique newborn photo props but nothing fit the bill; she wanted props that nobody else had and wanted to put her own personal touch on it. Loving crafts, Kerri set out to make her own. Elizabeth Pellette of Elizabeth Pellette Photography, located in Springville, New York, arrived at the newborn shoot and loved what she saw. After a lot of encouragement from loved ones, Custom Photo Props was born in 2009.
