Take a fun, bright quilt or sheet outside and drape it over a large patio chair. Sit your subject in the chair (candy always works for me), snap away, and then crop out the background.
Drive around! You never know what you might find in your area…
…like this graffiti wall.
Maybe a nearby hotel with a lot of history.
The laundromat makes for a great location!
A bright door (matching shoes are a bonus!)
Speaking of doors, a white garage door is such a great backdrop!
How about about an open field (bring an extra person to keep an eye out for snakes!)?
An amusement park has fun bright colors for your backdrop and your kids will be happy
