November Portrait - Christmas Card Preparation

November 25, 2012  •  3 Comments

Christmas 2012 0008 I started photographing seriously again because of these two young ladies. Even the President's daughters may not be photographed as much. Since they were born they have graced our Christmas card which means each year I have to capture another image that Grandma approves for the card. This one did not make the card, but Grandma liked it. Photographing two energetic and silly young ladies is a challenge. I have to make sure I have everything setup before hand as patience for Grandpa and his camera wanes quickly. I used a 3 light set-up in my basement utility room studio: SB910 in shoot through umbrella camera right (key light); SB600 in a reflecting umbrella camera left; and a SB800 bounced off the background.

Such a precious picture. Can't wait to see which one made the Christmas Card. These two girls have given us so much pleasure as we have watched them grow up through your eyes. They are adorable.

Precious picture. One can hear their giggles. We are all excited to see which Christmas picture made the top of Grandma's list!

Bright Eyes comes to mind as a title for this one. Precious! Oh, to have that much energy and brightness again. If this one did not make the Christmas Card, then I can hardly wait to see the one that did.
