I first met Emma when she was a wee 4 days old.  How much they change in one short year!  It was just delightful to have her back in the studio for her 1-year portraits.  After such an easy newborn session (I don’t even remember her making a peep), I knew we’d capture some beautiful images.  She was a bit of a tough nut to crack at first, but mom assured me that would all change once she pulled out the cake.  Moms always know best.

Emma Grace, one year:




So wonderful to see you again little one–thanks for sharing your sweetness with me!

    Just lovely, adorable and beautiful lighting.

    Are you able to say if you use white seamless with a PS treatment or if this is a cream backdrop? If you were ever to share a guide on how you light your studio portraits I’d be really interested.

    Thanks so much, Lisa. The backdrop is actually just the wall of my studio (Muslin by Sherwin Williams, I think) and for the lighting I use a strobe in a Westcott 50×50 softbox and feather it in front of the subject. Hope that helps:).
