Rachael and Lenny Christmas Photos

Racheal and Lenny were wanting to get some photos taken for their Christmas cards. The only problem here lately is the cold dreary weather. Fortunately they came up with an alternative, which was taking pictures where they attend church at Christ the King Cathedral in Lexington, KY. We were hoping to get some outside as well, however the weather did not cooperate and not 5mins after we headed outside the rain came down to accompany the gusts of wind that we were already experiencing. Despite all this I believe we managed to get a few good shots indoors and we are going to reschedule hoping for better weather!

This is my first shoot where I used primarily artificial light. My new flash was great, but I still have a lot to learn about the art of artificial lighting. Here are a few of my favorites...


  1. ooooh! The 5th one is my favorite!

    try flipping your flash up...did you get a speedlite of some sort? I always try to shoot with it pointing up rather than straight toward the people....that way it doesn't throw shadows. :)

  2. I was trying to bounce the flash some, but the ceiling was like 50ft high and the pictures were just dark :(

    I got a Speedlite 270, it's very small but has been perfect for what I want to far. I may upgrade for an indoor wedding that i'm doing in May.
