Where's My Props?

The New York Times has a Q&A with a baby photographer on how to take good pictures.



The photographer — a woman in San Diego — does seem to take nice shots, but I wonder if I should take personal affront at this part:
Q: What are the mistakes that people most commonly make when photographing babies?
A: ...oftentimes, I see too many props or loud props that steal the thunder from the baby. This is totally a personal preference, but I say keep it clean and simple.


Uh...so this wouldn't work?
