These are officially my first self portraits using my new studio lighting and backdrop! I hung some Christmas lights in the background to get the playful bokeh. I’m so vain.

Don’t you love my scarf? It’s 100% cashmere and ridiculously soft. *SPOILER ALERT* I got my mom a pink one for Christmas and never sent it to her. Mom, you’ll just have to open it when you come visit in a few weeks. I’m sure we’ll still have the Christmas decorations up anyway.

I am seriously obsessed with my new equipment. The reflective umbrellas create such a natural daylight effect. I mean, with the exception of some moderate touch ups to my skin, these pics are basically SOOC.  I used my new fixed length 50mm lens, too. SWOON. So CRISP and SHARP. I was THIS close to sedating Moose so that she’d sit still for some portraits. SOMEONE COME BE MY MODEL! Annahita, I’m bringing my gear when I come take your preggo/family pics so clear some space for the set-up! lol
