My daughter's boyfriend's sister did DDs prom pics last year and they turned out pretty good but her choices of backgrounds were boring. She has asked me to do her pictures this year, I can take pretty good pics but we are limited to backgrounds. You can only take pictures of the lake or historic downtown so many times....KWIM?
Anywhooo......what are your suggestions or what were your best candid prom pic backgrounds?
Thanks for your help!

I am really big on props... Probably because I work at a party store on the side. I wish I had a better background suggestions. I have seen gazebos, greenhouses, playgrounds, my dd and her date did a shoot in the bookstore, and we have had kids come into the party store and take pics by some of our displays.

These are the book store photos. They both really liked these and got lots of compliments since they both love the book store. We did a before and after.

My dd's best pictures were taken on a playground.  All the others were standard pics, many on our steps in front of our house because they are so large and nice.  I still love the playground ones the best of all.  

My tiny dd usually had a pic of her on the back of one of her friends always too.

How old are you in the US when you go to prom?  Here our formals (proms) are in the last year of high school.  Depending on state it is usually 17 or 18yo here.

My kids only have their pics done at home...its not really a "thing" here.

The best background shots Ive seen are those in paddocks, forests or broken down old places...here our beaches play a big part in backdrops.

Here, prom is and Seniors, so 16-18 are the average ages, but a Senior can invite an underclassmen as their date, so this year will be my daughter's 4th Prom.

Your daughter has been going to proms for 4 years?  Our formals only include invites that are of the same age or one year down...16-18yo.  A 12 or 14yo would not be allowed at our formals.  To be honest I would be kind of grossed out....wondering what and where I had gone wrong that my 18yo was attracted to a 14yo....either son or daughter.

Yes, this year will be her fourth year. I've never had a an issue with her being friends with her high school peers.
