I love to talk about props with my clients!  Especially for personal branding sessions!  I even have a dedicated section in my style and prep guides specifically for incorporating props!  It can be something as simple as a hat, bouquet, champagne, coffee, iPhone, designer sunglasses, jewelry, bags, or the products that you make! Props often […]
