we had the best time doing this fun little photo shoot in the extra bedroom. no, we aren’t even close to being professional photographers and we don’t have any fancy equipment...just a basic camera, some props and a cute little subject. (notice the fun little onesie i made and featured in my ‘create’ section a few days ago. i think it turned out just right for this!)
i have created this same kind of scenario for halloween and christmas and we have a lot of fun with it. for the previous holidays, i used wrapping paper but, this time around, i found a discounted vinyl table cloth. i love it more than the wrapping paper, the bird had fun sliding around on it and i can re-use it instead of tossing the paper. we just tape it to the wall and floor, making sure it covers enough wall and floor to fill the photo background. i try to include some kind of prop to keep the bird somewhat in place (it is hard to take photos of her because she won’t stay still for even a nanosecond.) we put on some music and just shoot away!
