These balloon-filled photoshoots capture the whimsical and childlike nostalgia of this popular photography prop. Everyone from editorial curators to advertisers are captivated by the seemingly simple inflatable sphere. The prop’s varying shapes, colors and sizes provide stylists and photographers a number of creative outcomes.

The prop can also bring festivity when scattered amongst a chaotic party performance. In other cases, photographers will create surreal sculptures using these latex decorations. Whether its a picturesque picnic editorial or a quirky engagement photo, these innocent party decors add glee to typical snaps.
