MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Isn't this hilarious!!!  This is my nephew!  Which we were laughing cuz he totally looks like a pretty girl in this picture!  While the boys were busy golfing in 30 degree weather on Saturday I decided to take some pics of my kids and then my nephew came over so we had to get some of him!  I'm sure you seen pictures similar on Pinterest.  It's very easy to do.  I'm no master, but here are some simple instructions to achieve this look:

I got some icicle lights on a white cord and draped them over one of my white backdrops, but you could also use a wall.  This was taken on my bed in the master.  Put the lights on the back wall and place your subject as far as possible away from your backdrop.  I wish I even had 10 feet between him and the backdrop and I would even have more blur with the lights.  I had two large windows to the right letting the natural light come through.
I used my 85mm 1.8 lens that I love!!!
F stop at 1.8
ISO 200
  Shutter speed 1/60.
If I would have planned better, I would have used a tripod since you really need a steady hand since your shutter speed is so slow.  Also, do it when you have the most natural light.  We did this at about 3:30 so I was losing light, but still turned out!  
Hope you have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and enjoy taking pics of your kids!

B + B = London

 I'm not going to lie that it was so refreshing shooting a couple that would just pose and I didn't have to chase around!  It helps that they are beautiful and the most fun couple too!



 We had so much fun and I can't wait for these two to experience parenthood for the first time!  Their is nothing as special as having your first baby I think. 

Thank you for driving clear from Logan and we love you guys!  I'm so excited that we are due 4 days apart.  You better lock up your daughter cuz my little man is going to be all over her!
