I had my son baptised on Easter Day, and just wanted to share one of the portraits I took of him.
Hopefully it's the first and last time he wears a dress

The picture was taken using an external flash in a 24" softbox camera right, with an additional bare flash at the background to get it all white.

Good one. I see some blackmail money coming your way in about 17-1/2 years :-)

Beautiful portrait! You will have to put it away by the time he is a teenager though. LOL
