If we were getting Christmas cards…

These would be on them!
 I started out with 1 strand of icicle lights, and as you can see, it looked pretty bad :) So I added 2 more! Haha!
 ^ My favorite :) Joelle was pretty much done.
My set-up:
This was taken at like, 5:30, so it was getting dark fast!
To do this, I just hung a white sheet, and strung {haphazardly, obviously :)} icicle lights across the sheet. I made Joelle sit about 3-4 feet in front of the sheet to get the bokeh I wanted. My settings {for the last photo of Joelle} were ISO: 160; shutter speed: 1/50 sec; aperture: f/1.8, all natural light. Let me know if you try this!
I definitely want to try this again… I really want a flokati rug to use instead of an old bed sheet, for Joelle to rest her elbows on :)

Hope - I think I like the first one the best! It looks nice with less lights :) awesome idea though!

Sarah-Anne - beautiful!! i need twinkle lights in my room STAT :)

Emily - I love these pictures!!

Olivia - pretty pictures emily!!!!!i love them:)

mary ann - These are so cute! I’d love to try something like this.

Lara Anastasia - That is a smashing set-up you have there!! Thanks for the inspiration. :)

Eve - Creative idea! Mind if I steal it? ;)

Emilie - OMW! That is so cool! I wonder how colored lights would look? I have a fluffy pillow that would look awesome as something for the subject to lean on. :)

Sereina - These are great! Bokah is awesome!

Fizi Kizi - oh my- these are beautiful! :) xx

Davene Grace - Emily, you’re a genius! I love this idea!!! I think I’ll try it out, but I’m not sure I’ll get results nearly as good as yours. Oh well, my boys will be excited simply to see the Christmas lights being pulled out! :)

And by the way, I think your new hairstyle really agrees with you; you look great with it! :)

CHristina - I think they all look great. i think the first photo is good because of her fresh face, and the 3rd because of the extra illumination. Thanks for the ideas!!!!
