DIY studio

We had a little time this evening before baths and bedtime to take some pictures on the seamless white background setup that Cody built in the garage.  Here is the set up:

We definitely need to get some additional light stands but for now the power washer and stepstool seem to be working. He built the setup so we could get shots like this:

(Andrew, Parker, Nicholas)

We also tried to get a picture of everyone on their tummies, but we were only able to capture one before they melted down. We’ll try again for this shot when it’s not so close to bedtime.

I have a feeling we’ll be spending a lot of time taking pictures with various props over the next few weeks (or years). The solid background also gives Cody many options for post processing. We also have a cloth background for taking other portraits. I think it’s exciting that we can take pictures of the boys without having to load up the van and if they are cranky we can always try again later.


  1. Those are great! So cool that you have your own studio.. nothing more frustrating than putting in all the time and effort to get the kids dressed and loaded up to go get pictures done and then not getting any good shots because either they are freaked out about the new setting, or the photographer, etc, etc. Can you tell this has happened to me:)?

  2. where your cars go?
