Prop Ideas

Prop ideas for your next photo session - JCPenney Portraits


Add a Personal Touch

Photographs tell stories that last a lifetime. Bring your unique story to life by incorporating personal props from home. Maybe you have a cherished family heirloom passed down for generations, a special hand-knit baby blanket, or a favorite holiday accessory. Using personal props is a great way to customize your session, giving your photo memories a personal touch.


Prop Policy Updates

Your safety continues to be our top priority. As part of our enhanced cleaning and safety protocols, all studio locations are discontinuing the use of soft, porous studio props. This includes items like blankets, swaddles, stuffed animals, fairy wings, dresses, accessories, etc. We will continue to provide props made from hard, non-porous materials, including chalkboard signs, stand props, ornaments, wooden snowflakes, etc. Customers are required to bring their own baby wrap or blanket to photograph newborns or non-sitters. We encourage our customers to customize their sessions and bring personal props from home.

Learn more about our new safety protocols that will be implemented at all JCPenney Portrait studio locations. We sincerely appreciate your understanding during these times of uncertainty. We look forward to capturing your precious memories.
