Say hi to sweet baby Heidi! It was a joy to take this new little ones photos, along with her sweet big brother & sister. They are so in love.
I say this all the time, but lifestyle newborn sessions are amazing, probably my favourite!
February has come to an end, it's finally starting to get light outside! Yay!
I am so looking forward to being outside with my camera but I am really loving working with light and shadows lately. These are some of my favourites from February: Spa days Valentines, playing in the snow, bedtime and morning routines <3
Bring on March!
Long winters means less light and photography equipment is expensive. I usually try to only buy what I need when I need it. I love my speed light but an Ice Light would be an amazing tool in my camera bag so as I wait and save for it I started playing with alternatives.
I cut a paper towel roll in half, lined it with tinfoil and attached an LED flashlight to one end. Sounds silly, but it was fun, it most definitely was not the effects on an actual Ice Light but I think it was a good starting point. Sometimes it's not what you have it's how you use it. I really liked the results, but they are my kids, so I may be slightly biased.
Since I was playing with a flashlight I had to give one to my son also, it was a great way to keep him from running away from me every time I came up to him with a funny looking light stick.
