These two were SO cute! I just loved working with them to take some couple photos for their 1 year anniversary!

So I have had quite a few of you fellow photographers email me over the past couple of years asking about backdrop stands and I thought a blog post would be the perfect way to answer this question for several of you at one time! I’m honestly not a huge fan of the PVC pipe shindig that has been floating around the past year or so! It’s just not an easy or convenient solution when many of us have to travel to our client’s homes for sessions. So, allow me to share the perfect solution with you! The backdrop stand below is from YescomUSA. They have a little bit of everything, not just photo related equipment. Their selection is quite great and they are super affordable!

The stand arrives in this easy to carry case:

I love how well they come packaged! You can tell YescomUSA pays special attention to ensure their products arrive top notch!

I absolutely love, love, LOVE this case! It keeps everything nice and organized and separated so that it doesn’t get all scratched up!

And here is the coolest part! This backdrop stand is totally customizable for your needs! It adjusts from 5ft in width all the way to 10ft! Most stands I have found are automatically 10ft-ish. This makes it difficult when you have a small space to work in! I LOVE that I can make this one 5ft, which is perfect for all my newborn/baby sessions! Pictured below is my stand at 5ft width and my 3×5 flokati attached just to give you an idea of proportions!Photography Backdrop Stand


So there you have it! An awesome, portable backdrop stand! In case you missed the link to check it out, here ya go again:


I hope this helps you in your backdrop stand search! :)

Happy Shooting,

I am planning some super adorable mini sessions for the kids, which will be held in my home studio with a Valentine’s theme background, as well as couples! Couples sessions will be held outdoors {still determining which location}! If you happen to be one of the few men out there reading this post, this would be a GREAT V-day gift for the lady in your life! Trust me, this will top them all! ;)

There are limited spaces available for both days, please email me ASAP to book! =)

The end of 2012 got pretty hectic for me and I ended up having to slack on my blog updates quite a bit! But I wanted to take the opportunity to post my tribute to my amazing 2012 DTP family and say THANK YOU for your continued support! This year has been amazing and I can not wait to see what 2013 holds!


* Please note….if you had multiple sessions with me this year, you will only find one photo! I had to save room for all the other sessions! lol.

A good friend of mine asked me to second shoot a wedding a few weeks ago and I was so excited to join her! This wedding was so much fun to shoot! The couple was awesome and I had the wonderful task of capturing the groomsmen before the ceremony! These guys KEPT me laughing! I hope you enjoy a few of my favorite shots from the day! =)
