    Love your video❤️. Can you tell me the size of your backdrop and the material is it fleece or did you get the premium?

    I have Christmas minis with Christmas backdrops coming up and would like to get some tips on lighting. I have umbrella lights and a flash that I use on camera and off camera. I usually do outdoor using natural light and this will be my first time doing these indoor. Any help is appreciated. I love you backdrop in this video and your tips for this is great. Also I’m using a rebel T6 with a 50mm lens

    Where do you buy those beautiful dresses?!
    They are breathtaking ❤️



  8. Daishia Carr on November 13, 2021 at 8:56 pm

    What size is the backdrop can it fit a family of 8



  9. Native on November 13, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    Love your Ted Talk 😂❤️

    Hi! What do you use to hang the backdrop from the wall?



  11. Florika Dedes on November 13, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Your photos are absolutely beautiful! Do you have any tips for someone, like me, just starting out? I have a Canon rebel t7 and want to do some Christmas photos using backdrops of my 15 month old…I have the basic camera set up so not even sure if I have the correct lens 😬



  12. Johanna Virgil on November 13, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    What lens do you use in that space? I have a small space and I feel my 85mm is a little tight, I’m considering using 50mm
