Have you ever tried using a digital background?  I love that they can be so quick and easy as seen in this video tutorial.  In this case, I’ve designed the images with my props, flowers, greenery, layers, bowls, furs, etc, and photographed it with my big beefy camera.  All YOU have to do is insert your own newborn photo! (Examples below)  Today the NEW Holiday Digital Backgrounds are available!!!!!!!!  I love traditional Christmas colors like red and green, but I also like to use different, fun and unique color combinations to add variety to the holiday season portrait options.

New to digital backgrounds?  Here is a quick VIDEO TUTORIAL and some visual samples of how digital backgrounds work:

This design below is SO MUCH FUN!!!!  I added Christmas decorations to 2 different versions of this background, and then took it all away to create a simpler year-round option:

Here are some other samples of the NEW Holiday Designs in use:

Happy creating!!!!

I did a blog post on release day showing the polka dot backdrops in use here:  http://caraleecasephotography.com/blog/cake-smash/idaho-falls-id-newborn-infant-child-photographer-perfectly-polka-dot-backdrops/  Since the original release of these new backdrops I have added RED and GREY to the collection!!!!!  I know that I WILL DEFINITELY be using the red and gray for some of my December newborn sessions!!!!!  https://www.intuitionbackgrounds.com/collections/caralee-case-collection

I am so grateful that Intuition Backgrounds invited me to create a collection of backdrops.  I knew immediately that I wanted polka dot backdrops in my most used and requested colors!!!!  And here they are…..introducing Perfectly Polka Dots:

These backdrops are SO MUCH FUN!!!! I have been searching for the perfect shade of pink, something that reminds me of fresh raspberries, and it’s finally here!!!!  It photographs beautifully!

I love a tack sharp image with a dreamy, soft, blurry backdrop.  Compared to the rest of the backdrops in my studio, I made this one a little more green and the color is simply divine!!!!!!! 

This soft purple is a wonderful lavender color:

The denim dots are a MUST HAVE for every studio!  Of course this beautiful blue is perfect for boys, but it is just as perfect for GIRLS!!!!!  This is my most used and requested backdrop!

This backdrop is a soft bubblegum pink color. It’s not too warm and not too cool, just a pretty and precious shade of baby pink.

Another one of my most requested backdrops is Young Love.  I’ve always thought is was the perfect shade of yellow.

The new yellow polka backdrop is a bit softer and more gender friendly (no hearts!), but still a beautiful shade of yellow!!!!  Add a little saturation in post processing if you like to make the yellow polka dots as bright as you’d like!!!!  This backdrop adds sunshine to any set, and works for all genders!!!!!! Looking for the perfect purple?  Well here it is!   Purple meets a touch of pink in this backdrop to create a beautiful shade of lavender.

And here are some more samples of the gorgeous, gender friendly polka dot, Caribbean.

 

Thank you to Intuition for allowing me to create these backdrops, in colors that will get LOTS of use in my studio!  I hope you love them as much as I do!!!!!!!!

I have been teaching photography workshops since 2012, and it has been amazing!! Watching ‘my’ students grow, hone their craft, and reach the level of quality and success they desire makes me SO happy. I say ‘my’ students, because I love and care about EACH ONE of my students! Even long after our workshop has taken place, I’m there to continue the learning and support of the students; to be their cheerleader, advisor, friend, brainstorm helper, an ear to vent their troubles too, whatever they need. I LOVE teaching!!! It is in my heart, it is in my blood, I am passionate about it, and I strive to always give 150%!

 

A few days ago I received this message from a July 2019 workshop student, and wanted to share it with you!
