My son is now 7 months and half. I love him sooo much, Hope he will have some great memories of his first Christmas.:)

In this picture I use 3 flash, one at right, another at left and finaly the third behind my little polar bear to blast the background.

Definitely another cute one. He seems to have a lot of fun posing, and I don't doubt you're having a lot of fun shooting. Technically sound. That outfit must be awfully warm. White on white works surprisingly well.

Real cute!
great christmas shot

Another great children portrait. Though it's way to early for me to think of christmas I like your christmas feel in this and your previous shot.

Great expression your son has. He looks very happy.

Good note and I appreciate the info on lights. Now all I'd like to know is what do you use to trigger the flashes?

Bonsoir Cindy,
Quel adorable petit ours blanc qui a l'air tellement heureux sur sa banquise! Maintenant tu as un vrai Teddy bears pour t'amuser!
Une exécution très professionnelle avec ta mise en place et l'éclairage. S'il ne ne souvient pas de son premier Noël, tu pourras toujours lui montrer cette photo magnifique!
Toutes mes félicitations! Annie

Oh lovely! Cindy. Hmm... Christmas mood already, and the happy expression of your son tells a lot about how joyful it would be.

An excellent lighting. You did it nicely done and I must thank you for sharing the info.


so cute and very nice photo..

Bonjour Cindy !

Adorable , mignon et surtout si naturel. Ton fils a assurément beaucoup de plaisir à jouer au modèle. Éclairage superbe pour une ambiance très douce. Composition et technique sans faille à mon humble pointe de vue.
Joyeuses Fêtes en famille !
