Flat Lay Photography Prop Haul – My Current Instagram Feed Must Haves

Quarantine has positively challenged me to find ways to create content while stuck inside my house.

FIRST go here to see the giveaway I’m doing!!

I’ve always had a fascination with flat lay photography and the way so many people on my instagram feed were able to style photos to be so stunning and well balanced. I’ve posted before some of my photography must-haves.

I also have a whole board over on my pinterest filled with all the links!

*note* I am in NO way an expert, I just find this kind of content fun to make, especially if you’ve been keeping up with my instagram 🙂

(all the links will be in the pinterest board above!)

Time for the haul!

– random bits & bobs –

I’ve had my eye on this rattan-like circle (normally used for setting the table) from Target for so so long. It took a while to finally get my hands on it because it was out of stock online for a while. Similarly, I got a pack of these four rattan-like coasters. I think both look really great on camera to add some texture!

A more random purchase was this glass measuring beaker. I thought it could be fun if I test out more recipes like the cold brew lemonade one I did here.

– wooden trays –

Very recently, here in New Jersey, most stores have opened back up with a limited capacity. This meant that I could venture off to buy more home decor, not just from Target.

I bought the first one over at Home Sense and the second one from Home Goods. I didn’t plan at all to buy two wooden trays but both were so cute I couldn’t resist. I’m blaming all the stunning photos I see on my instagram feed with these aesthetic wooden trays.

I’m just imagining these now laid out on my bed with a nice cup of coffee, and maybe even a dairy free baked good. OOOOH!

I found a similar one on amazon as home goods/home sense doesn’t really sell online :/

– bohemian mirrors –

I’ve had my eye on getting a cute boho mirror for photos, again, thanks instagram! Also that recent “tik tok trend” also blew up the whole idea of using mirrors for photos. Even just looking at these photos I quickly took gets me SO excited to play around with it, maybe a beach photoshoot? hmm we shall see. Stay tuned!

Big shoutout to my friend Mia who I was with shopping. I was debating hard core buying this mirror (it was only $20) and in the end she nudged me to just get it & I’m obsessed.

Here is a similar one I found on amazon.
