Here in MinneSNOWta with below freezing temperatures, there are not a lot of people who want to be photographed outside. So, now is the time to flex my skills inside my warm studio. That's ok. I love working with strobes, backdrops and props. It gives me permission to try things that I wouldn't normally have time to do when I'm on a paid shoot. Also, my two oldest girls are home from college and generally bored over the holidays, so I have in-house models who are willing to pose in exchange for the rights to the car or some shopping with mom, haha. It's a win-win situation!
