Red Portrait

I took this image because it had been stuck in my head for a while how I wanted to take a color-based image… really focusing on red tones, like this shot… maybe I’ll do others as the whim arises.

Here is another portrait image, filled with ideas- the toy prop, the slight smile, the parent behind me catching the kids attention. This is from my recent Easter shoot and I kept with the same white background for the entire shoot, so that hasn’t changed. I took this in studio, and hope that it helps you to decide some portrait ideas for when and if you come to me for work!

Things to remember (me) with this photo so I can make it that much better next time- light the background better and stretch out the dress so it hangs better on the girl! Maybe a top light as well? Hmm…

Lessons from lighting…

This is shown at as well as flickr and facebook. Enjoy them all!
