Thrifted Photography Props: Hanky Panky Poo

This is my nephew, Mr. Hank! (I call him Hanky Panky Poo but only behind his back cause its not manly) My Sister came in town last week and I asked her if we could take some pics of this handsome little guy! I just couldn't resist!  We threw a few things together for this cute photo session. We went and picked up some fabric at Joanne's, with a coupon of course! I wanted a textured floor for him to sit on so we headed to the Restore and picked up....... It's actually a fence! 

Once again, I forgot the before picture!!!!!!!! GRRRR!! I hate that! It was just a plain unstained wood and I quickly slapped some white paint on it. 

All the props used in Hanks pictures were either from garage sales or hand-me-downs.
My Aunt bought this wooden crate at a garage sale and then sold it to my Mom for $15. I bought him that little tie :) Of course I bought it at Savers for $1.50.

My Mom bought this old telephone at a garage sale for $3 dollars. Hank's shoes were also bought at a garage sale for .50 cents.

The old truck is actually my Grandfathers when he was a little boy. I will be keeping my eyes open for a truck like this at garage sales! I love it!

My Mom picked up this old rocking chair at a garage sale for $10

This is one of my favorite pictures. Mr. Hank is actually named after my Grandfather and these are his boots and his hat! Such a sentimental picture!!!! 

Such a handsome little guy!

Photography props can get really expensive!!! In my opinion, the best place to find props is garage sales!!!

I also snapped a few family pictures while I was at it and I couldn't resist the urge to share!!!

Oh ya! Thats right! Ain't no question! My Dad is #1!!
