I am mostly an outdoor photographer, preferring natural backgrounds with natural light. But, sometimes our crazy Illinois weather leaves no choice but to shoot the session indoors. This was the case last week for the Birthday Boy’s photo shoot, as our late-March weather was far from springlike. We wanted to do a few “cake smash” photos along with the 12 month “onesie” photos. Since Easter was a just a couple of days away, we thought we would also take a few bunny ear photos while we were at it. This was going to be a fairly long session involving a few wardrobe changes and several props! With the weather forecast in the 40s it wasn’t looking good for an outdoor session. It was time to bring in an assistant or two (or three), a bag full of props, a roll of backdrop paper and turn this living room into a photo studio! There was lots of natural light coming in the living room windows, so that is where we decided to set up shop.
