My daughter and I did a senior portrait session last week for a friend.  It was such a blessing to have my daughter accompany and assist me.  She is a fantastic photographer and offers some wonderful ideas.  Our friend, Mikayla, has such a sweet spirit and was great to work with.

For this shot, I used my Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens at f/4, while my daughter held up the gold reflector from the Impact 42″ 5-in-1 Collapsible Circular Reflector Disc Set.
