Studio Portraits

I don’t get the chance to shoot in our studio that often.  Here’s a couple shots from a really fun shoot the other day.  Adam & Kristyn live in our neighborhood.  So we bump into them when we’re out and about walking our dog and have gotten to know them over the years.  They are SUCH a neat couple.  So creating these timeless memories for them was a real joy for me. 

One of the best investments I ever made for our studio was connecting all my Alien Bee strobes via the RadioPopper Jr. remotes.  When working with a hyped up dog (you can see by that first image that it took Cami & Kristyn a while to calm down their beautiful Golden Retreiver, Sal!), you have to be able to move FAST!  So when the hair light needs to be reduced and the main light needs more juice, being able to do that in the blink of an eye right there on the camera is a HUGE advantage!  Fortunately Sal mellowed out and Dylan warmed up and we got some great images for them.  J
