    Hi everyone! I am new to photography, but I have been making photography props for a little while now. They are mostly for younger kids, and I have an Etsy shop

    Doodlebug BooteekPhotography Props by Doodlebugphotoprops on Etsy

    But I am at a loss as to how to the word out there about my shop. I've tried contacting local photographers and such but nothing seems to be working. Can you guys give me a critique on my shop and tell me honestly what you think about my items?

    Thanks! :D

    I think theyre good. You just need to figure out how to get your name out there. Research may be one way, or contacting a marketing company could be the answer.

    For everyday use these would be okay, but for use in portraiture the bold colors tend draw the eye to the prop rather than the subject. Another thing is can these be purchased elsewhere? If so the cautious mother may prefer using one of their own rather than one that may have been soiled by the child you photographed earlier that day.
