Wow, thanks guys for the votes and comments! My daughter was pretty jazzed to hear she won another ribbon for me..haha. We sure had a fun night creating this photo.

Lighting setup:
alien bee w/umbrella placed on the left/front side the height of the subject.
alien bee w/umbrella placed on the right/front a little lower than the subject..this light wasn't as bright as the other which gives depth on the face. I stood on a stool and shot from above. The background is white.

Sorry I don't know the light settings. Would have to dig all that out to and I probably changed it. I mess with them with each pose and subject and I had my little one in this shoot too. hehe Pictures Here and Here.
