DIY: White Light and Sheers Background

Why yes, it is as easy as it sounds. This do it yourself project may take you 10 mins to set up and cost you anywhere from nothing to $20. 

Things i used:

white lights from big lots. 2 boxes @ $6 each

Sheers from Ikea: they come in pairs for $5 a set. I have a ton of them, but you can use 2 sets and be good to go, (even 1 set if you must)

I already had a wire hanging thing from Ikea BUT you can totally use those clear push pin things if you have to! I'm not judging-i use them ALL the time for stuff-i even hang pictures with them. 

I hung the sheers first, then un winded the lights so they would be all twisted. Followed by draping them almost to floor and back up again stretching them out a bit as i went. plugged it in and well...i was done. 

DIY lighted backdrop-for anyone, not just 'pros'

You check out a sample of a family portrait session using this same background setup as i have here...HERE. 

Super Simple. Try it with colored lights, and add a baseboard to make it look like an actual wall if you want. i used the sheers as a sort of "snow" as well because hey, here in florida, we happen to lack that cold white stuff!!

DIY Bonus Idea: You may see the kids blowing something "snow like" that is bean bag filler! Just make sure you aren't using it around babies or kids who will try to eat it-that stuff is toxic. 

I would love to see what you come up with, share with me your links to what you come up with in the comments below! 

Why Are all the Santas Different? and other Santa Questions.

So its way into holiday time...actually only 2 days until Christmas that i write this. My kids are watching their morning cartoons, i am trying to wake up, and across my facebook newsfeed i read about a friend who's daughter asked her Why all the Santas she sees are different. I thought the blog would be a good place to answer this honest and oh so innocent question.

Sexy Sunday: Lady Dani {Boudoir}

So i get a call from this vibrant person who did not need much convincing that she needed to do a shoot. She saw another clients images and was pretty set. We met for coffee and to go over details so i could answer any questions she had and it was a blast. We went over products, and options and what she was hoping to do with her images. If her boyfriend was lucky and behaved of course, he might even be allowed to see them ;)  I learned so much about her from our first meeting, that when it came to shoot time, we just laughed the time away.
