The ModStyle Shot

Well this is a first of many Mod Style Shot suggestions for photogs!!! 
My goal is to try and provide photographers with an opportunity to have an entire shoot put together.....something mod, trendy, new, and fun!  Since I am a prop designer I keep up with all the new trends on props and can hopefully give all of you the heads up and keep you updated on the New Mod Styles that are surfacing in the prop and photog world!  With that said if anyone has any ideas they would like to see come to life please feel free to email me at chicbebe@bell.net!  I would love to hear any new ideas or style shots that you may have!!!

For this Mod Style Shot we used the Chic BumbleBee Beanie and NEW bum warmer!  These bum warmers are all the new rave and on top of looking super duper cute they are so easy for you photogs!  Drop on a cute little newbie bum and there is no fiddling with a  diaper cover!  Any hat can have a sweet little bum warmer added or if you prefer and like the look of a diaper cover better, you can also request that!

Why don't we start with how this shot looks like behind the scenes!!

The Talented and outstanding McCarthy Photography gave us a behind the scenes look at her set up for this bumble bee shoot!  It is nice to be able to see a pull back shot of what exactly photographers are doing so that you can get an idea and feel for what this looks like behind the scenes and how photogs are getting their end results!

When talking with Natasha from McCarthy Photography her advise on pairing floors with backdrops was to "Try and keep lighter backdrops with lighter floors and darker backdrops with darker floors" this will flow better and help with blending during editing. 

Natasha used floors from PhotoProp Floors and Backdrops for both of these setups.  In the picture below you can see the actual backdrop and floor images embeded into the set up image.  This gives us a great view on how Natasha eyed and paired up the floors and backdrops.

For the specific lowdon on floors and backdrops you will find below all you need to know to order these combos from PhotoProp Floors and Backdrops!

This is the actual backdrop used for the upper set up and is called:
