In just a few minutes, I am heading out to do my first photos at a local daycare.  I’m so excited, and also nervous.  I’m doing a holiday setup that I hope comes out really well!

Have I ever done a holiday setup? Well, not really!  But did I work my butt off practicing my technique until it turned out nice, well, I think I did! I usually don’t use the backdrop, as I’m on location – or the studio lights, but I know how to set them up & go with the flow of things when duty calls.  Overall, I love the look we turned out with.

My practice subject is most often Donovan, and while he hates it, I still love the time we spend together & the questions that he asks are so insightful.  Last week, I practiced my holiday photos with him.  And while they started out all wrong, in the end I hope the children & parents are going to enjoy these – I enjoy the practice shots I did of him in the blue, and eventually I threw him in some holiday wear & will use these for my Christmas cards!
