DIY Creative Photo Backdrops

Here are a collection of my favorite ideas for Creative Photo Backdrops.
I enjoy photography and love to photograph family & friends. I photograph all our business jewelry and the models wearing my designer pieces. But I have been looking for more creative ideas. Here are a few.

I've also set up a Pinterest board that includes all of the backdrops features in this post

1.)Light it UP!
Drape your lights lengthwise down the window for an illuminating effect.

2.)Country Comfort
A Fabric Strip Backdrop

With the fabric strips you can use any number of color combinations or just a solid color mixed with multiple shades of that color.

3.)Western Woodlook

For a Rustic Photo Back drop, you can use butcher paper. If you add strips, taping the back sides together or onto poster board, it will keep longer.

4.)Billowy Curtains
Using lace Curtains is an inexpensive way to re-purpose curtains that have been cut to different sizes.

Finding curtains at your local thrift shop, Salvation Army, Good Will, or Habitat For Humanity Re-Store is a great way to find a thrifty deal and have a great back drop for your photos!

There is no limit to just one color. Use burlap, denim, check, patterned curtains that will go with the style of the scene you will be creating. The ideas are limitless!

5.)Beautiful Balloons
Great idea for New Years, Wedding, Bridal Shower or a Special Anniversary!

Check the party supply stores for colored balloons of all shapes and sizes!  I even found character balloons for children's birthdays!

6.) A Chair & Colorful Back drop
This would be a great way to set up for a child, disabled or an elderly person. A place to sit is a great idea for those of us who need it now and again!

7.) Giant Flowers

I would love to do this with my grandchildren for Spring/Easter photos!  The pastels and flowers are perfect. Follow the directions in the link above. And enjoy!

7.) Marshmallow Snow

Here this is used for a wedding, but I can see it as a Christmas Theme with a tree, presents & Santa Hat.

This is a lovely idea!

8.) Outdoor Scenery

When my children were little, I use to photograph them outdoor all the time. It is a great backdrop and free!
9.) Flowers & Antiques

Prayers for Healing Update

Prayers for Healing (Prayers for Healing UPDATES) Hello Dear Ones,

When a believing person prays, great things happen. (James 5:16b NCV)
I've been giving thought to how to go about our prayer chain. I have decided to do an ongoing prayer post with updates and with Praises as they come in!

If you would like to be on this list, or if you would like me to post a prayer for you, please just let me know in the comments below in the Subject line put "Prayer Request", add the first name and last initial, prayer request and I will add it asap. I remove the info from the comments, so you will not see it below, but on this list here when I am done.

It has been said to me many times that, " if we don't know what to pray for, be it huge or small, we don't recieve the blessing that prayer will give the person who needs the prayer and the person praying". Please keep posing the prayer requests. All personal information is kept private.

We pray to you Lord Jesus Christ to…
