Our Story

Thank you for visiting!  I’m Leah Severson – Indianapolis newborn photographer and owner of HomeSewn Photography Props. 

True story - even after more than 20 years as a newborn photographer - I'm still not great at wrapping babies.  A few years ago, I messed around with some fabric and my sewing machine and created a "cheat" wrap that I started using in my studio for my newborn photoshoots. 

It was a simple layer with bows down the front that I would lay over a traditional wrap, then secure with an outer stretchy loop, so I could change the wrapped look without having to unwrap the baby.

To be honest, I didn't tell anyone about these for years.  I was embarrassed that I couldn't wrap better, and I really did feel like I was cheating.  But one day, I put them up online, and people went crazy for them!

We now have a team of 6 Indiana moms and grandmas who sew our patent-pending TuckWraps™, our newborn photography swaddler called the UnderWrap™, and other fun baby photography props. 

My husband, Todd, handles all customer service, shipping, and marketing.  My daughter, Emma, handles our social media marketing.  And my daughter, Lindsay, cheers us all on.

We’re glad you’re here, and we appreciate your support of our small but growing business.  We hope you enjoy our unique, patent-pending wrapping alternatives.  We'd love to hear from you!

If you’re not sure how all our wrapping sets work, please spend a few minutes watching our videos or check out our Tutorials page.
