CPP Baby Wrap Softness & Stretch Scales

There’s so much to love about our collection of baby wraps here at CPP! Our exclusive assortment offers a wide variety of colors, textures, and weights. To help you understand the important differences between each category, we’ve developed a softness scale and stretch scale. Soon all of our wrap listings at www.customphotoprops.com will feature both a softness and stretch ranking. Here’s a look at all the details of our Softness and Stretch Scales:

SOFTNESS SCALE

1 = I’d wouldn’t use that to wash my floors!

2 = Eh.. it’s not the best feeling out there but can be used for short periods of time

3 = Ah.. this feels alright

4 = Oh.. this is cozy and feels good

5 = Incredible softness and comfort! Give me a place to sleep immediately..zZ..zzZ..ZZZ

 

STRETCH SCALE

1 = No stretch at all

2 = The fabric gives a little bit but doesn’t look great if you like the form fitting look

3 = It has enough stretch to make swaddling easier

4 = Oh.. this has great movement and I can easily wrap a baby with this

5 = Holy smokes, this has some serious stretch

 

For an in-depth look into how each of our wraps rank and compare to one another, ceck out this article:

Swaddling Wrap Comparison

I’ve been asked several times this week on how our newborn baby wraps differ from one style to another, so here is an explanation on the characteristics of each fabric. ANDDD… thank you for pushing me to do this overdue baby wrap comparison post!

A couple things to know before we begin.. all of our baby wraps are exclusive to Custom Photo Props with exception of the Nubble wraps. We choose the fibers, dyes, elasticity content, and size of each wrap and bring it to life.  We love to curate new products for newborn photographers that surpass what’s currently on the market. Since we love having our own exclusive collection of superior products, we are discontinuing the Nubble wrap line. It’s not that they aren’t good in their own way, we just don’t like being like everyone else!

5 = Holy smokes, this has some serious stretch!

DREAM LUX SWEATER 2

There’s so much to love about our collection of baby wraps here at CPP! Each category is designed exclusively for our company, which means you can only find them here! They come in a beautiful array of colors that match our vegan furs, and are great for swaddling or layering. Since we offer such a wide variety, we thought it may be helpful to explain the important differences between some of our categories:

DREAM: Dream is the lightest, airiest offering in our wrap collection. Light as cashmere,  its delicate, open knit stitch provides a subtle sheerness and lots of stretch.  

LUX: Knit with a finer, tighter stitch than our Dream Wrap, the Lux Wrap has a lightweight sweater feel to it. Each one is hand-dyed and has a luxurious feel and generous stretch.

SWEATER: Multicolored yarns are interwoven to produce our beautifully muted, multi-shade Sweater Wraps. Their cozy, fuzzy texture gets even softer with time, and their multiple levels of color make them super versatile! 

MOHAIR: Our local artisans hand-knit soft-spun mohair into a delicate & open chain stitch that makes these wraps light as a feather and oh-so-soft! 

NUBBLE: Nubble is knit with a loose stitch that makes it extremely stretchy! They have a slight texture to them and are see-through once fully stretched.

ARTISAN: These come in a wide array of textures & colors and add a beautiful level of dimension. They’re accented with special design details like embroidery, applique, ruffles, lace  and tassel trimmings!

Custom Photo Props Spring Collection!

We are so excited to announce that starting soon, we will begin offering seasonal collections!

All of your favorite products, including our vegan furs, wraps, apparel & headbands, have been curated into beautiful new collections that will deliver every few months. This means that we’ve taken the hard work out of mixing and matching props that will coordinate for your studio sessions! All of the products in the collection have corresponding pieces that complement one another beautifully. Spring just happens to be our favorite season – how can you not love all those florals…all that fresh color- so we thought it was the perfect time to debut our first collection!

We think newborns + pastels = the epitome of lovely, so you can be sure that we’ve included as many pastel perfection hues as possible! Our palette of lavender, buttercup, mint, peach, blush & cherry blossom is universally flattering and will definitely freshen up your next photo shoot! Each color story features a fur, some wraps, headbands, and select apparel items that come together beautifully. You can use each one on its own, mix and match hues, or pair them with the collection’s creamy, dreamy, complimentary neutrals.

 Some fresh new items we’re excited to introduce are our beautiful new flower crowns –  these have been handcrafted with silk flowers, freshwater pearls, textured yarns and other natural elements. With so many special details adorning these, we know you’ll love them just as much as we do (especially since flower crowns are really trending at the moment)! Our new spring blossom mohair bonnet has been hand-knit and adorned with a beautifully handcrafted silk flower. This special, delicate piece is unique to CPP and has been custom-designed for spring! And we are just crazy about our fuzzy hand-knit bunny hat and soft-as-ever speckled rabbit faux fur – both will be perfect for your Easter photo shoot!

Spring is almost in the air, and we know you’ll love the fresh, new vibe of this collection!  For a sneak peek, check out our”New Spring Collection” video in the left hand tab of our Custom Photo Props fan page on facebook!

Puppet Warp Tutorial

Custom Photo Props is more than just your one-stop shop.  We want to create a relationship with our photographers that is more than just selling props.  It’s  been a while since our last Photoshop tutorial, so we thought it was time to bring another easy tip to help!

Not every newborn session goes perfectly when it comes to posing – there are also many circumstances that prevent you from getting the perfect angle.  The baby could have an injury or just simply doesn’t cooperate no matter how hard you try.  You may or may not be familiar with Puppet Warp, but this Photoshop tool will help you manipulate your images to be exactly what you originally wanted them to look like!   We came across this tutorial and just had to share with you!
