I’ve always wanted to try and shoot confettiimages! They are fun, whimsical, colourful, and I knew my kids would love them. And let’s face it…for most of us, photo sessions need to be fun for our kids to participate willingly!
The end result I was going for was my daughter softly blowing the confetti towards the camera, and I think we nailed it!

What You’ll Need
Your Camera (hehe!)
Confetti (I used coloured circles)
A plain background/wall. I used thunder grey background paper, but a plain wall will be fine
Being winter, we chose to shoot the confetti images inside relying on window light. I set up in front of a large window and used my thunder grey backdrop as I knew the colour would pop against it.
You don’t need a professional backdrop…a plain wall will look great. If I were doing this in warmer weather, I would have used a plain wall in our foyer with the door open to let in light or my patio wall outside. But as it were, I needed to shoot in a position in the house that needed the backdrop to avoid the surrounding clutter.
