On December 27, 2010, my sister gave birth to her first baby girl, Emmelyn.  I’m not one with a lot of experience with portraits, but you only gain experience through trial and error.  I didn’t have any proper lighting equipment to speak of. No flash, no lighting umbrella, nothing.  I remembered that I had white Christmas lights from an earlier photo shoot and decided to try and use them for this occasion.  It actually worked quite well, I think.  Who says we always need to have the most technical equipment anyway?
