It's the middle of a long, cold winter in Dayton, Ohio, but for the Schmidt family, the arrival of little Ethan Robert is keeping them warm! He was born to parents Jon and Emily Schmidt, as well as to big sister Margo…Emily's mom was even able to be with us for the shoot! Luckily, I brought my soft box with me, since we were so limited on natural light during these short, cloudy days! The only other thing I could've done was crank up the ISO, but no good photographer wants to have to do that if they can help it. I also got to work with my black backdrop to take some of those dramatic black and white shots that I oh, so love. We had such a great time coming up with these different shots. I feel truly honored to help document these precious moments with families. Here are a few of my favorites…hope you enjoy them!
