This is a copy of an award-winning image done by Hayley Hamlin in January. She told me how to do it awhile back and I finally just got around to giving it a try. Thanks so much Hayley! The mom loved it!

I think it's adorable as well. Was it hard to do? I'd love to try this myself if you would share.

I always loved the one Hayley did- could you tell us again what you did here? Window light? Plexi glass? Thanks so much for sharing it really is terrific!

Thanks everyone. I used a black muslin behind the baby and under some plexiglass I bought at Lowe's. I used studio lights, but I think Hayley used flash. If you had enough light you could probably used window light. You just need to make sure that you can see the reflection in the glass. I, obviously, had to use photoshop to combine the three images. I also had to use photoshop to darken some of the plexiglass, which appeared lighter becuase of the light on it. It's actually pretty easy and the baby loved it!
