The Joy Bag {review+giveaway}


Prepare to be inspired, wowed, and totally spoiled with fresh and unique camera accessories by Tracy Joy and the Joy Bag Collection!





Let's meet the ever fab Tracy -- you might know her from her widely popular Prop Insanity blog, maybe the TJ Accessories etsy shop, Pink Heels Boudoir, Tracy Joy portrait photography... oh and co-authored a must-have photography book called the Ultimate Photographer Sourcebook -- seriously!  Plus she's a mama and actual, busy bee real-life successful photographer too!  Why not create her own line of drool-worthy camera bags?  I am tired just thinking about her many projects!


Perfect size and protection for a dslr camera with lens attached, and I actually can fit my prime lens in my snazzy GLEE bag too!  I love the funky designs and the long strap, so I can chase kiddos and keep my camera safe at the same time!  I just love my GLEE bag!!  Paying attention to style, the Joy Bag Collections really blow any standard boring camera bag out of the water!  :)


And very gorgeous too!



A quick browse of TJ Accessories and you'll find camera strap covers and perfect lens bags too!  All in designer fabrics -- love!!



Tracy makes it easy for any level of photographer to incorporate a little art into their photos.  If you spend a minute or two on Prop Insanity, you'll see that Tracy incorporates props beautifully into her photography sessions!  These perfect parasol umbrellas are a great addition to a prop collection but also for weddings, parties, or playtime!  I just love the bamboo handle too!  {at $9.25 you can really get an affordable and chic parasol!}




As a very amateur and hobby photographer, you could even call me a mom'tog, I am ever inspired by miss Tracy!  I cannot stress enough how gorgeous her photography is and how seamlessly she incorporates props and poses into natural, art-worthy shots!  She knows a thing or two about the business, so when she creates and IT bag, you know it's the ultimate!






The IT bag isn't actually a bag at all, but a camera bag insert to accompany your stash of totes, diaper bags, handbags to instantly transform a standard bag into a safe, functional, and stylin' camera bag!  The insert is padded and sectioned, so you can safely stash your camera body and lenses in the cubbies without worrying about bumps and scratching!


Tracy has so sweetly offered one of these IT inserts {$73 value!} from the Joy Bag Collection for a lucky reader of The Ivy Twines!  YAY!!
