Christmas Photo Tips

I love to use rolls of wrapping paper for photo backdrops.  Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on cloths and vinyls.  It's all about proportion.  I did these shot pretty close up because I didn't want to plaster my wall with paper....but you get the point!  They turned out pretty good!
 
He was actually just sitting on the bed, on a stool, in the extra bedroom. 
 
I had the windows open and the light shining in......
 
Candy and bribery go a long way when photographing 2 year olds!


 And eventually it comes to this..."Mom stop this....you crazy yo!"

So cute! I've used rolls of wrapping paper as backdrops for food and other items but no people yet. I have 3 kids I need pictures of and I suppose it could work if I did all of their pics individually and then did a collage card. Can you imagine trying to photograph 3 kids (one newborn) all together with 1 roll of paper as the background?! LOL That could be interesting...

What a great idea, you're so smart! I would have never thought to use wrapping paper, geesh. And you're little man is adorable, but I don't blame him for getting tired. I would have done the same thing. HA!

Hugs to you, happy Thanksgiving, and see you soon at the bloggers meet-up!

What a great idea to use the wrapping paper as a backdrop! Love it, and the "Bokeh" is great on your camera as well!
