Studio session/Indiana Portrait Photographer

Monday, I went to Hobby Lobby to check out their fabric to use for my sessions. I seriously love this store. Their customer service is awesome and their prices aren’t bad either. Anyway, my friend and I had talked about getting some damask looking fabric to add to our backdrops. We looked at several sites and found some that were fairly inexpensive. One of our worries is that it would wrinkle and we definitely didn’t want it to wrinkle. I found exactly what I was looking for in Terre Haute. I bought 3 yds and it is 54 inches wide. I really love the look of it, don’t you?

I used my nearest models to test this out and I love the results. I can’t wait to use it for the session I have today.


Time goes by so fast

It is so hard to imagine that my little baby is now 5!

Happy Birthday Poptart!!!

We love you!

Wireless triggers for flashes/Indiana Photographer

I have a session to post for a sneak peek but decided to write a post about a new item I recently purchased for my flash and camera. I have studio lights, which are really nice….and as anyone who I’ve used them on can tell you…they aren’t very portable. There is a lot that goes into bringing them and setting up. When my friend Jen Rinaldi came to visit last year, she brought these wireless triggers for all her flashes. I loved the ease of set up…very cool. But, I didn’t think that I could use those because I don’t have a Nikon Flash, I use a Sigma.

Fast forward to July. When I shot with Anna Lynch McClary, she also used flashes for studio lights. Again, I was curious about all that and had asked her to send me a link of where she got her triggers. Jen had sent me links of where she got hers, but my problem was that I still didn’t have a Nikon SB800 and when I looked for them…I found out that they stopped making those and I really don’t have it in the budget to buy a SB900 yet. So, anyway, when Anna sent me the link to where she got her triggers, I saw that they have those triggers for my Sigma.

I was/am elated! I bought one right then and there. I got it in the mail on Monday and I’m posting the results that I got last night. I tested it on my girls, then I immediately used it for the session that I did last night. My husband was so great to hold the umbrella and the flash for me.

Here is the link to where I bought it:
