Alright all you moms, bloggers, Etsy shop owners, photographers and casual picture snappers.

Do you want to make your photos look more professional? Have you ever thought about of using a backdrop? Sure taking a pictures of your adorable kids on the sofa is cute, and taking a picture of your shop products on the table is fine, but what if you had a professional backdrop to work with? Wouldn’t that be an easy way to make your pictures look nicer? More polished?

Those are the things I was was thinking about when I came across Butterfly Backdrops.

 

I loved everything about their company. They are small family owned business, they print all their backdrops in their own printing shop in Bay St. Louis, MS, and they use eco-friendly ink with no hazardous air pollutants, so you pull the backdrops out of the tube and smell… nothing! No harsh chemical smell!!!

Oh and arguably the best part, they have amazing designs and a huge variety! I can pretty much guarantee you’ll find something to your taste at their shop. They have classic patterns like wood grain, hay bales, and door frames, they have solid color patterns, but where I think they really shine is their playful patterns, they have polka dots, ballerina bars, chevron prints, sailboats, balloons and so much more.

 

 

I’ve been lusting after cute backdrops for a while and I was thrilled when Butterfly Backdrops offered to send me two of their vinyl backdrops; ‘Leafy Larry’ and ‘Fenced In’. It gave me a chance to try out a backdrop and floor drop (through the floor drop worked equally well a backdrop).

They day after the backdrops arrived, I had Dmitri dressed and ready for a photoshoot. I couldn’t wait to try them out. They were perfect! I have to admit this was my first time photographing against vinyl, and I loved it. I usually photograph against cloth backdrops, but the ones I have are thin so I have to layer them and they take forever to iron which often makes them more work than they are worth to use. With the vinyl, I pull it out of the tube, unrolled it, clipped it up and it was ready to go.

Okay, now some of you are probably thinking “I’m not a professional photographer, I don’t know the first thing about using a backdrop and I don’t even have the equipment to hang it.” Let me start by saying these backdrops are so easy to use, you can turn any space into photo space in less that 5 minutes, and you don’t need any fancy equipment.

I happen to have a bunch of photography equipment, but I wanted to make sure these backdrops could be used without it before I pitched it to all of you readers, so I found a semi empty wall and grabbed some masking tape. I pulled my backdrop out of the tube, unrolled it and had it taped to the wall and ready to go in minutes. (I would suggest using the thicker masking tape, because this tape worked but it came loose after about 15 minutes.)

Or here is a look at a more formal set up:

Having something simple like this allows you to take your photos from this to this in less than five minutes.

Or to create something like this:

I common complaint I’ve heard about photographing against vinyl is that you get a glare, but that was not my experience at all. The backdrops are textured, and feel a little rough to rub your fingers against and I think that’s what dissipates any glare problems. If you get up really close you can see a little bit of the texture, though it didn’t show up on any of my photos where I wasn’t focusing the camera directly at it.

The backdrops also had no chemical smells and I had no qualms about letting Dmitri play on them, in fact I think they would be perfect for cake smashes or newborn photos.

In short, I love how professional and adorable my pictures turned out with these backdrops. They were fantastic and super easy to use. If you’ve been curious about trying one I would highly recommend Butterfly Backdrops.

And because I can’t resist showing off my adorable son, you get a photo dump…
