First Birthday Pics

I made this a page because I love looking at them so much… and didn’t want them to get buried. 

I’ve had several people ask how I took these.   This is a white muslin drape.  I only use muslin, either digital or real.  I like the effect, I like the texture.  Some people prefer paper for a smooth look, but I don’t.  Muslins are awkward and very heavy to take to my shoots, but has a nice look.  You can get a good muslin background for around $100.00. 

A clear sheet of plexiglass for the baby or toddler to sit on finishes the effect.  I used three studio lights, one as a small backlight.  I love the faint reflection of the baby in the glass!
