31 Days of Photo Props: Chalkboards

Have you entered the photo canvas giveaway yet?
 One of my absolute favorite props is a chalkboard. You can make a chalkboard say anything you want it to and so it personalizes a shoot to the maximum. My favorite way to use a chalkboard is to fill it with a list of the subjects favorite things at that age. So many times as parents we forget the little things. This helps us remember.
Here are some of the ways you can use a chalkboard in your shoot.

Newborns- Lay them on a large chalkboard and list their weight, length and time of birth on the chalkboard. 
Children- List their name, age, and their current favorite things. 
Seniors- Year of graduation and clubs and organizations they have been apart of. 
Groups of children- Happy Birthday, Happy Father's Day, Merry Christmas and then use the photos for cards. 
Engaged couple- as a Save the Date with the wedding date on it. 
Families- Saying such as "Our Happily Ever After," or "We are a happy family." 

The possibilities are endless so get photographing!
