My photographer sister asked me to build this prop for our pregnant sister. Apparently it’s easier to take photos of infants within the first 10 days or so, because you can manipulate their pose & positions without them fussing too much. The photo at the end with the baby, is just off the internet….I still haven’t seen pictures of my nephew in the moon yet.

This project was a challenge. I built it so you could remove 3 slats and sit a baby inside of the moon.

I hope my wife and kids don’t see this or they will be wanting one for sure. Good job.

Pretty darn nice for a simple prop. Very nicely done, nice quality prop. That should last a few hundred photo shoots.

Love it. My grand daughter is due any day now. Since seeing this, I feel a pressure to make one ASAP, as I don’t want to miss those first few photogenic days!

Nice work, I was wondering if you have the dimension for this project. I have been asked to make one for a young photograph friend.
