Newborn Penguin Crochet Outfit
I got my start as a designer in the photography prop industry. It was soon after I had my first son I loved anything newborn related. By the time I had my second son, I had such a passion for newborn photography that I had become a newborn photographer. While I no longer take photography clients, I still enjoy designing newborn props. It's also nostalgia for when mine were so little. If I could reverse time, I would put my baby boys in this cuddly Newborn Penguin Crochet Outfit outfit. You don't have to be little to enjoy this penguin stuffy! He is cute for holiday decor or to just have around. And of course, I think he makes a great gift for all ages.
