Geogrous shot Kelly!! I love the soft texture of the skin and how their features pop out at you. Nice composition too. What an adorably baby... ;) #78242

Kelly Billington

Thanks Judy and Debbie...i so appreciate you taking the time to write me...always makes my day

Betsy Drew

I love the baby's expression! What kind of lighting did you use? How old is the baby? Just preparing for my sister's new arrival! #89000

Kelly Billington

Hi BD....In both photos you wrote me about I used natural light with a reflector to the side. I love using natural light I think it look better and it's very easy to use...freeing up time to focus on the baby...In the sleepy baby photo...I used a black velvet backdrop....I sewed pieces together to make the size that I wanted and I nailed it to the wall...very simple and should take some pregnancy shots of your sister before she has the baby....let me know if you need anything else...Kelly #89095

Betsy Drew


I didn't even know they both were yours--I was just browsing through the category and commented on the ones I liked! Shows you you're good! When you say the reflector was off to the side, do you mean opposite of the baby or opposite of the mother? Thanks! #89107

Kelly Billington

the window is to the right...the reflector is to the left closest to the mom....the baby is around 3 months old....thanks for all of your nice compliments...things are going well so far...I've only been doing this for hire for about a year...still have soooo much to learn
