About

As a handmade photography prop business I provide specialist newborn photographers all over the world with new and unique props. I design and hand make most of Big Crocodile photography props using the softest materials available. Many of these materials I have sourced from abroad and are only available from Big Crocodile. My own brand of Snuggle Soft Yarn is very popular as it has no wool content, looks great on camera and is not itchy for the little ones and my Cosy Up Merino is the most gorgeously soft wool in a range of beautiful colours. I have also sourced some beautiful props from around the world to compliment the Big Crocodile handmade catalogue. 
My order list is often pretty long although I do try to get orders out within 2 weeks to everyone. I can't imagine how frustrating it must be to wait 6 - 8 weeks for items so sometimes I am working into the small hours to get your orders out. I am always increasing my ready to ship section as I know that sometimes short notice props are what is required. 
Please share your Big Crocodile Photography Prop pictures so that I can put them on the gallery.
Lets be social
I love it when you share with me - use the hashtags #bigcrocprops on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest and I will see it.

Big Crocodile the business has grown hugely in the last year or so. With the knitting skills I developed here I launched a personalised handmade hat brand. Made from the finest merino  you can design your own hat from a range of styles and colours. The hats were so popular that a clothing followed and it continues to grow - please come and check out our sister site www.bigcrocodile.co.uk and maybe treat yourself to a hat too.

 

Why Big Crocodile?

I often get asked why Big Crocodile? Well he is my second daughter's imaginary friend. He has been with us for years now but is slowly becoming a less frequent visitor. I enjoyed her stories of what he was up to so much that I did not want to forget him when she no longer needed him. He has therefore been honoured as my business identity. My daughters think that is brilliant.

          

Big Crocodile

This is a story about how for a while
We had a house guest known as Big Crocodile
He arrived one day out of the blue
Bought home by child number 2
He'd sit at the table, he had
his own place
Maddi made sure he had enough space
His favourite foods were cake and stew
Served up to him by child number 2
We had no shoes to match his size
So he wore roller skates as part of his guise
He loved to play games like snap and guess who
He was the best friend of child number 2
He was too big for the car so rode out on top
Slipping down the side when we came to a stop
He'd look through the window at Maddison Moo
Pulling funny faces at child number 2


Whenever there was trouble he'd get the blame
'Big Crocodile did it' she'd say with no shame
But eventually he moved on somewhere new
He had lived in the head of child number 2
