Please have some respect for a content maker trying to provide for her family. I've seen my backgrounds on Etsy and other background companies many, many times. Even amongst "reputable" names in the photographic industry. Please, just don't do it. They were created for you to use in your digital edits and hopefully, help boost your portrait sales but as final flat files NOT as backgrounds!

Backgrounds may not be sold, licensed, or distributed in a way that permits Licensee’s end users to extra or access the backgrounds as a stand alone file. By purchasing you agree to these terms.
