Though most of my studio work has been primarily product photography, I decided to expand my skill-set with in-studio lighting for portraits. I offered Courtney the opportunity to model in-studio in exchange for portfolio credit, and had my first in-studio shoot with her. This was Courtney's first photo shoot as well and she enjoyed the experience. It's important for a portrait to express who that person is, so I asked her to bring something personal, something Christmas-ish. Below are the photos from Courtney's session.
