After the lighting photowalk, I started thinking about ways that I could create my own "studio looks" without actually having a studio.

The first thing I tried was using a backdrop with natural (outside) light.

I set up a screen/room divider I had painted white on my porch and put Allie in front of it to try it out.

I even brought out her rocking horse to keep her happy for a few minutes.

I literally had 5 minutes before she was tired of it and ready for a nap. :)

I am one of those moms...taking pictures and ignoring my crying baby :(

Crying never hurt anyone, right?

After her nap I tried something else...I'll post on that tomorrow.
