Updated: Aug 10, 2018

We were in the process of adopting a little girl back in 2016. We first started fostering her November 2016, the courts finalized the adoption on October 17th, 2017.


I would like everyone to meet Skylar, our little curly haired Shirley Temple. I went with a muted look similar (to me anyways) of those old colorized magazines.

which resulted in this..




She certainly loves to dress up, and she most certainly loves getting photographed. Now if only she could listen to instructions better… but she’s 3, so we’ll work on it.


Lighting was simple:

9" softbox camera left, behind subject @ 1/128th power.

33" shoot-thru umbrella, camera right @ 1/16th power.

Fuji X-Pro 2

XF 56mm f/1.2 lens @ f/2.8
