Jazzing Up Your Photos with Sidewalk Chalk

We’re FINALLY having professional family photos taken next weekend and I’m so excited!  (There is a small chance it might not happen due to C developing a very persistent stye in his eye – of course –  but I’m sticking my head firmly into the sand and moving forward with haircuts, outfit selection, and the like as if everything will go off without a hitch.)

 

I found this wonderful photographer through a question/comment she left right here at MPMK.  As shoot time approaches, we’ve been emailing about the details and one of the things she asked was whether I prefer a more natural or urban motif.  That made my head spin a little.  I’d been picturing the standard photos in a grassy field, was she trying to tell me there was another option?

 

A quick review of photos on pinterest revealed that there certainly was.  And just like that I discovered my urban side.  I’ll be sure to share the photos once we get them.  For today I wanted to share something else I unearthed in my pinterest search, the use of sidewalk chalk as a photo prop.  I’ve rounded up 10 easy-to-do-at-home setups. (OK, 9 that are easy-to-do-at-home and 1 that’s completely astounding.)  Enjoy and happy weekend!
