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!
