Backgrounds set the tone for portraits. Dramatic low key shots using a black background create a rich portrait. Switch to a solid white background and you'll find yourself bathed in white and bright lights. One of the most impressive backgrounds is achieved by composite photography. See more ideas on our blog staging backgrounds in your home or business.

"Douglas Simon Photography....thanks...beautiful! It truly was an experience of a lifetime for the girls. Doug does amazing work." —Janet B, Claremont, CA

"My Husband and I have had the pleasure of having Doug capture some beautiful moments that will last a lifetime! Douglas Simon Photography not only met us at an outdoor location for beautiful nature shots, but they also came to our home and made it very easy and convenient to capture studio portraits. Doug made us feel comfortable in front of the lens and allowed us to be creative with poses. We now have professional photos for business purposes and very fun casual photos that you can't help but want to display and share! Their work is superb and we couldn't be happier with the results. You can't be disappointed by professionals that want to make you happy and that they do!." —Dezarae K., Aliso Viejo, CA via Yelp (filtered)
