Fifi And Mark.... My Home Shoot

Hello everyone....some of you have asked about the photo shoot at my home with Fifi, so I have just a few photos and thoughts to share with you today. It was an honor to work with my dear friend Fifi once again! She is just a delightful spirit and shared photos and info of what she has in the works with me. You guys will all love what's to come from her in the future I'm sure:-). 
Although I have worked with Fifi before, this was my first time meeting photographer Mark Lohman. He's a seasoned pro and a no nonsense type of guy and to observe was a treat. We have the same camera and lens love...and he was kind enough to share a bit of his knowledge with me. I love this photo of Fifi and myself that he shot.....
A little photography tip is to use a sheer white drape on the window and photograph your object (in this case people) with the light coming in from the side.......

Gotcha! I took a few photos of Fifi and Mark at work....
And just a few photos that I took earlier in the week, as I did much of the styling beforehand to have it ready for the shoot.....

I'm off to relax a bit today up at our beach home before I get back to work on my sorely neglected website next week! 
Please leave comments if you wish & follow on Facebook for daily updates...
