Aura Knits - and More



This post is very special to me because it is for my mom.
About 2 weeks ago I helped my mom launch her very own etsy shop called Aura Knits.
For years now my mom has created beautifully hand crafted items using her amazing knitting and crochet talents.

She can knit and crochet almost anything!

I not only have been blessed with a great mom... but a mom who has made me some of the cutest most adorable infant hats.

Since starting my photography business I've needed some photo props. Hats have become some of my favorite props to collect. My supplier? My mom, of course!

  1. I'm just getting into photography and LOVE hats, but have yet to purchase any! I'll keep your mom in mind! I especially love the Crochet Newborn Hat With Picot Edge and Mary Jane Booties. The colors and everything are just perfect!

  9. Not sure if this is where I should comment, but I will.

    First let me say that I love, love, love these! I want to share a story with you real quick to as to why I would love to have one. I can NOT knit, but I know a little (I mean little) about how to crochet so I bought some yarn and crochet needles and went to town. When I finished up 30mins or more I *made* a hat or sort of. Here's the kicker....It only fit my son's sock monkey!!! Thanks for the opportunity and Good Luck!

I did my first newborn shoot yesterday (http://www.feelyphotography.com/blog) And I really didnt have any props to use. So for my next one, hopefully in the next couple weeks, I would love to use one of your props!! I can send you the picture too :) Thanks for the contest! I will be having one on my blog next week for a crochet hat too!
