Finding Backgrounds & Locations

This is one of my favorite parts about photography! Finding the location. Here are some ideas to help you find the perfect spot for your photos. 

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.

A little editing and voila! A pretty portrait!

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.

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!)?
