These are a pair of black & white images from my first ever paid portrait session in Florida. Somehow I had never written about them before. These mother and baby son portraits were made on the University of Tampa campus. I learned a lot from this portrait session, especially to not rely on the Nikon Creative Lighting System's commander mode for triggering speedlights! I soon switched to using dedicated radio triggers.
I chose the above photo out of several others of similar composition because in this one the baby boy is grabbing his mother's necklace producing a natural smile in mom and a natural act that I believe all babies do.
