Picture-Perfect Memories: Using Freddy & Co Play Mats as Delightful Photography Backdrops

At the last expo I enjoyed chatting to baby photographers, they are a wonderful group and are in fact return customers. But what about for all the days in between a planned family shoot?  Babies grow so quickly and we all know how fast those precious baby moments fly by. If you are anything like me you probably have 1000s of pictures of your babies on your phone. That’s why we're here to share an ingenious idea that combines functionality and style – using your beloved Freddy & Co luxury baby play mat as a stunning backdrop for your little one's photos. Get ready to capture those heart warming memories in a whole new way!

Preparing for the Shoot: First things first, let's talk setup. Natural light is your best friend here, casting a soft and warm glow on your baby's sweet face. Experiment with angles and camera settings to find what works best for your desired effect.

Setting the Stage: Picture this... your adorable baby engaged in play or relaxing on the neutral tones of your reverse side. It's like creating a mini studio right at home! The unique design instantly transforms the background, making every shot pop with personality.

Themes and Storytelling: Thinking of themes? Let the play mat guide you! Whether you have a little adventurer exploring the world or a book worm on their alphabet animal play mat, the play mat design can set the tone and add a touch of magic to your photos. And if you have something else in mind the light neutral reverse designs available make the perfect backdrop that doesn’t steal the attention (we even supply to photographers).

Choosing Props and Outfits: Now, let's talk about styling. Select props and outfits that complement your play mat's design – think toys, headbands, or even cute onesies that match the colour palette. The key is to keep the focus on your little star while adding charming details.
