Christmas Angel

Realized I haven't posted any photos of my cute little niece, Jilli!  She and her brother, Casey, are finally of the age where I can shoot them with the manually focussing Hasselblad.  Let the fun begin! Here's Jilli in her Christmas finest, sporting her new 'do and her endearing smile :)

I set this shot up in the living room with the xmas tree in the background.  Setting the strobe to a full stop and half above the ambient.  I love how the Hasselblad's leaf shutter system created little pentagons with the christmas lights :) Groovy bokeh!
