    • Thank you! Clothes make such a nice background, and it’s so easy to do too. Using a bit of fabric is a brilliant idea, so much more affordable than buying the full rug xx

  1. Oh gosh this is so helpful! I just started blogging and I was just thinking about what to use in my pictures. I always thought I had to use a dslr camera with a tripod in order to have good pictures but you take beautiful photos using your phone!

    • Thank you, I am so glad you think so! You definitely don’t need to have the full equipment, it’s all about finding what works for you, and I hope you manage to find things that you love! Thank you so much xx

  2. These are all such great ideas! I’ll need to visit a place that sells wallpaper as I could definitely use some free backdrops! Otherwise I use marble contact paper from Amazon glued to a poster board. Also, I had no idea that you take all your photos on the phone, they look just as good as ones taken with a dslr!

    • Thank you, I’m glad you think so! It’s such a great way to get a backdrop, and you can’t beat it, if it’s free! That’s a good idea too. Thank you so much, that means a lot!xx

  3. I love your photos <3 The best part about blogging is that we all use similar things such as fake flowers etc. but everyone has a different style of photography! I have used things like my exercise mat as a background for my photos and even a bathroom mat, sometimes you just have to look around the house and there's so much you can incorporate into photos <3

    Lots of love,

    • Thank you so much, and I love yours too! That’s so true, it’s great seeing what everybody does with them, as we all certainly have our own styles. Looking around the house is such a good idea, you can make anything into a prop really xx

  4. I love to use flowers, they are my no.1 props, they are so romantic and give a lovely feeling to my photos. Also fabrics such as lace or velvet look good 🙂


  5. I just usually use my real marble cutting board. But, I have a faux marble covering that I found online as well for a project that I was doing. Your photos look great, dear! I love seeing creative images the most! /Madison

  6. Thank you so much for sharing this, it’s really helpful! Photography is something I’ve really been struggling with, I had no idea how other bloggers managed to take such amazing flatlays

  7. These are good tips! I’m no good at flatlays, I think I need to consider props more to get the photos right! 🙂 I love that these photos are from your phone too, you’d never be able to tell if you hadn’t said, they look really professional 🙂

    Hope you are having a good week 🙂 I had the day off yesterday and after a specialist appointment for the little one I dropped the boys off at their grandmother’s and did some Christmas shopping, yey!

    • Thank you, I’m glad you think so! It’s all practice the more you do it and experiment the better you’ll get, and don’t be so hard on yourself. Thank you so much, that means a lot!

      I am thank you, and I hope you are too! Christmas shopping is the best, hope you had fun and I hope the little one is okay too!xx

    • I’m glad you think so! It really is, you definitely learn as you go along. It really is, there are some great editing systems out there that don’t even cost that much. They really are, it’s fab when you spot something else to use. Thank you so much!xx

  8. This is a great post Hannah, so helpful! Your pictures always look amazing! I love using dishes and fake flowers. After reading this I deffo need to get more props! I’m obsessed with that photo of the NYX palette, I need it! xx


    • Thank you, I’m glad you think so! Dishes and fake flowers are great to use. I hope you manage to find things you like! The NYX palette is fab, all of the sections are really good xx
