Every year I do holiday mini sessions. Since the weather is horrible this time of year in Poland, I organize it in studio and need to use studio lights, as natural light is definitely not enough. :( This year I was almost fully booked for mini session even before I posted  it on my blog. My regular clients were calling a few months before to check the date and make sure they had a spot. And as always I was trying to figure out how to make something new for them, so the pictures wouldn’t look the same every year.  I decided the theme would be holiday cooking this time.  All the kids were having fun with cookies and sugar and these two girls – Ula & Ola – were just amazing. Take a look…

  1. I love it! Simple yet festive and the lighting is perfect. Can I ask what your lighting setup looks like? I’m in Chicago and the winters are dark and cold too! I haven’t yet made the investment in studio lights but hope to very soon.

  2. For this session I used one strobe light (500Ws) with a huge softbox plus additional diffuser between the lamp and models.

  3. This blog was… how do you say it? Relevant!!

    Finally I have found something which helped me. Thank you!

  4. Lovely work. Beautiful children. Looks like you had as much fun as they did!
