My studio backgrounds are handpainted which adds to the luxurious painterly effect of the final portrait. I ordered them from the states and they are masterpieces in themselves…in fact the artist has signed them! I advise my clients to bring clothes that don’t scream out, ‘look at me’! I plan to create portraits where the child and family members stand out first: clothing is just decoration 🙂 You will be able to proudly hang the portraits on your walls for many years even if your interior design at home changes… your portraits will be timeless.
If you are looking for pictures of your kids in their everyday brightly coloured bold colours and a white background, I’m probably not the photographer for you.
I have 4 backgrouds, brown, dark grey, light grey and my most commonly used one which is in a natural canvas with pink, blue, green and yellow tones so it goes well with most neutral and pastel toned clothes. I typicaly use the lighter beige to start with and if all goes well and baby is having a good day, I’ll do a series on a darker background. These pictures really pop with babys light porcelin skin against the darker background! They are often my favourites!
