Pack these props for a gram-worthy vacay

May 14, 2016

If you follow me on Instagram @alishylishy, you know that I LOVE to travel! One little behind the scenes tidbit about my travels is that I usually have an entire carry-on suitcase full of photo props with me! Not only do I use trips as a backdrop for the colorful content on my own feed, but also for my clients.  Since everyone may not be able to give up an entire bag to props, I put together a list of 14 easy-to-pack, photo-worthy, props that will take your flatlays and lifestlye imagery up a notch on vacation!

1. Food Props
Make any tropical cocktail, milkshake, or dessert pop on camera with these colorful and metallic goodies.

2. Office Props
Tiny little finds to make “work” from the beach look as fun and colorful as it actually is! And they’re actually practical too. You’re always going to need a pen, headphones, and a cell phone, for example, so make sure they’re super cute!
