New backdrops!

I had been eyeing these backgrounds for awhile now, but just kept thinking I couldn't have them because of my carpet. Then all of a sudden last week it clicked...all I needed was a piece of plywood to lay over the carpet so the paper wouldn't get rumpled and holes poked in it! My sweet husband agreed... after just a little pleading on my part... to get me a piece of plywood, even though he knows this will mean he has to drag it in and out of our front room every time I need to set up the paper backdrops! :) So while he was at it I had him pick me up a piece of plexiglass to lay over the paper for reflection. I got the paper in gray, crimson, brown, pink, and blue. Yeah, it's SO time for a studio, I know, I know...!
Well, the paper got here this afternoon, as did some really fun pettiskirts that I bought for the girls, so it was like Christmas for me today!!
Not to mention yesterday Cohen turned 11 months old, so it was time for some pictures of him anyway!



I know what she's wearing looks a bit crazy with the skirt, but we were just playing around, so I didn't worry about it too much! :)









Technically, he isn't walking yet, so naked pics are still okay! ha ha
And I couldn't decide which I liked better, so here it is in B&W:




We had fun playing around today with this! I think I ♥ it! :)

Tomorrow, some more of the Sulser family pictures!

  2. Cohen's 11 month pictures are adorable; such a big boy! Maddie Kate looks so much older in the serious pose; when did that happen? She and Ava are beautiful!

  6. Wondering for the pexi glass if you just put it on there and tak pictures? Is it hard to edit with it? I need to try it and I am going to try the ply wood under my paper backdrop!

    I love the pictures and the idea of the plexi glass. Where did you get the paper from? And what colours are yours?
