Sneak Peak for B & R

I got to photograph another of my cousins cute boys, we are so lucky that our kids get to go to the same daycare so they are all pretty close. Sometimes a person shows up and finds the neatest places to take the pictures...this is truely one of my favorites:) T family, hope you like your preview!

B's mischieveous smile...him and my daughter T get into lots of trouble together...heard some of his moms side of the stories while I was there!

And R's eyes are to die for...

So grown up...

And for anyone who knows this little know this is a rare moment:) But I have to say it definately is one of my favorites from the whole shoot!!

Great photos! Love the location, too.

Sorry it took me so long to respond to your comment question. I feel like I'm the last person to be giving lighting advice, but since you asked, here it goes...
I'm not sure if you are a Canon or Nikon girl, but I use a Canon 430EX II flash set up on a standard camera tripod, using a Cactus V4 on my camera's hot shoe and attached to the base of the flash. I purchased the C*actus V4 set to see if I would even use the off-camera set-up before investing in the more expensive P*ocket W*izards. (The Cactus are a fraction of the price.) Eventually, I may need to upgrade to the PWs, but am happy with the Cactus for now. (I heard from my "camera store guy" that the V4s have a much better reliability than the earlier Cactus versions.) It takes a couple of seconds to re-boot, so I can't do consecutive shooting. (Not sure if I could with PWs anyway, since my flash takes a few seconds to recharge.) I have a variety of diffusers, but just purchased a white umbrella and like it the best. If I had to do it again, I might purchase the Canon 580EX instead, since it is a Master and my 430EX II is just a Slave. (BTW, I don't like flash lingo.) :)

I hope this helps! Let me know what works out for you.
