The Ultimate Photography Prop

I'm just starting to get into photography props.
One of the trends right now is using vintage chairs outside.
Like here and here.
So I'm going to try it out.
I started looking on classifieds for vintage chairs and look what I found in less than a day!

The ugliest, most beautiful chair EVER!
And the best part?
It was FREE!!!
All I had to do was go pick it up!
I'm soooooo lucky!

The lovely lady in the pictures is my friend Gaby.
She came with me to pick up the chair.

Yeah, that's right.
We didn't need a MAN to pick up a piece of furniture.
(Mostly because my man was at a conference and couldn't help me, but still...)

We took these pictures in my front yard. There's a huge empty lot beside my house with a farm on the other side. Yoda sneaked into this picture. But it's okay because he's adorable.

Seriously though, I can't WAIT to use this in a photoshoot.
Let me know if you want to be the FIRST to shoot with this amazing piece of furniture!
It would be perfect for babies, couples, seniors (high school seniors for my Canadian friends).
Hey, we could even do a photoshoot with your pet and it would be adorable!
Send me a note at my new photography e-mail:

On another note, I'm trying new things with Photoshop. The first picture has a green filter on it. The second has a sepia filter and I added noise to make it look older.
This is my first time rounding the corners of my pictures too. I'm really digging that look.
Let me know what you think!


  1. I like the sepia one. The rounded corners go well with "old" photos.

    On another note, I love the pink chair and balloons in the link you posted... you couldn't find a pink chair? haha.

  2. lol, my question is how did you get Tom out of the chair long enough to haul it outside and take the pictures?

  3. Oh I'm definitely on the hunt for a pink chair!
