Wow! So I finished my first professional shoot with a newborn and what worked great from me in hospital has produced disastrous results on location. I utilized their neutral wall with a similar cream blanket that had just a bit of soft texture. The results are very flat and smudged looking. Thankfully, they made outstanding B+W images. Still, I realize I need to bring my own backdrop in. And as much as I like white, I think I need black so we don't lose baby in the lightness (especially as I like light and bright images). Now I can't afford a huge set up, and it wouldn't be practical to take into someone's home anyway. Do any of you know where I could get a backdrop frame that's portable and professional looking? I've seen a few DIY's but I want to present myself to clients better than those options if I can.

Well, I guess it depends on what you mean by two small stands and a pole. I just want it to look professional. Plus new parents can be nervous and I don't want them to worry my backdrop frame isn't sturdy. I was hoping there is something out there that's small, portable, and not a DIY.
