It’s time for another weekly photography tip!
This week, I want to talk about getting creative with backgrounds for your photos. This time, I am talking more about taking photos of babies or kids, but the same concept can also be applied to families in some ways.

All of these can give you a great, solid, and smooth background for your photos. You want the background to compliment and enhance your subject, not take away from it.
Here are some examples of backgrounds I’ve used in my photo work:
Try it! Use different background options in your photos of your kids or your family.
