Tricia says:

“This session was very special because this little guy was a newborn client. I have been able to watch him grow up. It had just rained and it was still a very overcast day. I was disappointed because I really wanted a bright back lit session. I was more than thrilled with how this session turned out. The trees and flowers in my outdoor studio really had a chance to shine and added color and pop to this session.”

Tricia’s Photography Tip:

I really love photos that incorporate the environment. I especially love the color and texture that plants and flowers can add. My tip is to make your own backdrops by planting flowers around your yard or in planters. Pay attention to how the light falls in your back yard and plant flowers that would add color and dimension to the background of your images. If you do not have a large space you can plant flowers in planters and then place them where you need them. I also love to cut the flowers and use them as props.

By using the tips above, you will be able to add color and interest to your images, and you will have fresh flowers that you can use as props to add a fresh unique touch to your images.
