Hand-painted Photography Backdrop for Portrait Sessions at Danielle Sara Photography

Here are the final results of my very first hand-painted photography backdrop in action!

I do not consider myself someone who can paint or draw (stick figures are my go-to!). But painting is something I have been wanting to try as a different creative outlet.  With a little encouragement, tips, and inspiration from fellow photographer friends, I gave this a shot. I stepped outside of my comfort zone and took a risk knowing it could end up a complete disaster. I’m pretty happy with the results, even if it’s not perfect, definitely not straight, a lot of paint was wasted, and my 20 month old daughter was not a very cooperative model!  Maybe I’ll even paint another one 🙂

This backdrop will be available to use with all future sessions at the studio and will definitely be making an appearance again during Cherry Blossom season next Spring!




Summer Smash Cake Session at the Studio

This Summertime smash cake session was a perfect fit for baby Emerson. We incorporated fresh flowers hanging in mason jars for a rustic summertime feel. Customizing sessions for first birthdays is something we love to do. Each one of our cake smash sessions is unique to the birthday baby!  Mom chose a beautiful Pink Peony frame color to display her favorite smash image from the session.  It will hang in Emerson's room. What a fun session we had for this sweetheart! oneyearoldcustomstudio oneyearportraits oneyearoldsmashcake smash cake smashcake customsmashcake
