Family Portraits

Jackson at 3 months

At three months old, I got my first born son in front of my camera for the first time. For the first three months I left the portrait work to other people, but after getting burned by portrait company, I decided to take over my own kids portraits, at least for the time being. 

Tech Details:

Set: A black sheet on the couch draped in a sweep, a boppy pillow under the sheet and the kid laying tummy down in the U-shaped area of the boppy

Lights: a single Canon 580exII through an umbrella to camera right, triggered by PC sync cable

Notes: Patience is key with kids, they are often cold, wet, hungry etc. when its photo shoot time
