I'd much rather shoot them than adults..... some shots of my son, and my niece.
all shot with my dlite 4 kit
1st up, my niece Addison. She's 2 months old... and anyone who has kids, or shoots them knows that they're easy to shoot, but a pain a the same time. much easier at this age with the parents interacting... but that session will be done later.

and now on to Kingston... hard for me to grasp that he's 19mo old now... he's always on the go so we had to bribe him with some M&M's to sit still long enough to take his pic.

Nice shots...specs on lighting setup. I've been taking shots of my nephew and i'm 99% close to clicking the buy option on the following

1 vivitar 285hv (plus my 430ex i have)
cybersyncs to synch them
2 westcott silver umbrellas+light stands

All i need is the seamless paper for the backdrop. thanks in advance

it's an elinchrom dlite 4 kit. used 1 med softbox, and a small softbox for fill on some of them. key light was at about 45deg cam left, while the fill was right next to me cam right.

tell me about it.... he's smallish if you go by the doctors "percentiles" but he's smart as a whip... he's already doing 70% of the flashcards we got him that are made for 3 year olds :eek3:
if i compare my son and my daughter its actually funny. my son is 4 inches shorter and 4lbs lighter, but my daughter is 4 and my son is 18months. :rofl: but my daughter is WAY too smart. she's already trying to outsmart me and her mom. :o

some great photos of kingston :cool: i need to take more photos of my son. i have a million of my daughter but not very many of him.

I saw them on flickr. :bowdown:

I'm putting the 'lighting bug' on a friend on thursday. She's bringing her infant daughter over to mess with the lighting. She had questions about it, so I told her to come see for herself before she starts spending money!

Great shots. You have a style that I can see pretty consistently in all of your photos, which is a great thing.

I love taking pictures of my kids. I have a daughter that is almost 4 and a son that is almost 2. Both were pretty easy to photograph last year, but this year they just won't sit still. My son is especially difficult. My wife lost it during our Christmas photo session. I got 2-3 decent shots, but last year I got some great pictures of them.

I'll just have to get better at candid photography.
