Relaxed family portraits with a lot of love and a baby

85 mm f1.2: ISO 500, 1/500, f1.2

A beautiful woman. A handsome man. An early summer evening in the beginning of June and the gorgeous couple's cute baby. Yes, being a photographer is sometimes really easy!

I often get questions about my equipment and how I how I use the light. The truth is that in my opinion the question of light is simple - I just love to use natural light, just like in all these photos! This time I have added information about lenses and camera settings for each photo as guidance. As you can see I used only two lenses, always used wide open. Camera: Canon 5D MarkII, manual mode.

During the shoot I got the idea to this shot, but it was quite obvious that Ida was much more interested in the flowers below her than in looking at me and giving me a smile..... This was actually the only decent shot I got from that particular moment but I don't mind if it's only one when it looks like this!
