And it is your portrait and your decision.

Great light and you see that very well. Many don't

Don't know if you've ever seen these but here are some very strong straightforward family portraits. Some of your more straightforward work in a way kind of reminds me of Sally work

Absolutely stunning! What used for lighting? The light is just beautiful too.

I LOVE Sally Mann! I want to do some work this year that is inspired by her family images.

Thank you!! I shoot 99.9% natural light only. These were taken in my garage. I did a few with my speedlight as well, and ended up liking the naturally lit images 100x more. :)

I do have a pullback of a similar setup in my garage. The black 'blob' you see at the bottom of the pullback image is 6 yards of black fleece fabric. I stretch it across the opening of the garage (about 3-4 feet high) and clamp it to the garage door tracks with those little clamps you can get it Home Depot. It basically turns the garage door from one giant opening (which can cause your images to look up lit, especially if you have a sunny driveway right outside) to more of a high, long, narrow window. I like the light so much better when I do this, and it's so easy (and cheap).

Wow - lighting is outstanding - no 2 shot is my favorite. The hair & those eyes, you know how to shoot for the maximum effect!:-)

Very nice! I'd love to get my daughter to pose like this for me. :)

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
You're a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock, hurtling through space. Fear Nothing!
