On-location: Your own backyard

You don't have to travel far to find a background for outdoor portraits. The best backdrops could be found right outside your door.

These mommie/baby portraits were taken in the sideyard of their home. Fences, swings and shrubbery provided familiar props and background items, and I worked hard to throw them slightly out of focus to keep the viewer's attention on our two subjects.

Thinking of getting some portraits made? I'll visit your home beforehand to discuss possible locations for pictures both inside and out, and will even take some sample shots so you can see how others see you home -- I'll bet you'll be pleasantly surprised at how good your home can look in a photo (not to mention you!).
