Little 5 mo old Lucy.

I used one light with a large softbox at 45 degrees to the right (as you are facing her), a large reflector to the left and my other light pointed to the back drop to blow it out.

I really like this portrait - because although she is not smiling, she is 5 months old and starting to express more emotions and she was a bit apprehensive at first with her mom not being right by her. For me I like moments that capture who they are at that point in time, smiling or not.

Such a great expression - I'm not sure the final sharpness is quite there - the eyes are a little soft (though the brim of the hat is crisp). Nice nonetheless though.

Oh yes. I agree. I would so much rather have a natural looking child doing its own thing than a cheesey smile forced because the camera is there. I think this is an adorable baby photo. A good portfolio piece to market your style and excellent work!
