Last December Carolyn held her final Victorian Christmas Tea in DC before she moves back to Canada. (We will miss you Carolyn!) As with all of Carolyn’s parties, there was tons of scrumptious food and lots of fun conversation. Carolyn’s house was beautifully decked out for the holidays.

Maggie also wore 1840s.
For posed portrait photos, we found a good setup in front of the fireplace. The ceiling was white, so I could hold the flash up towards it and bounce the light back down onto the subject. Mike took the photo standing a bit behind me off to one side and remote triggered the flash from the camera. Maggie was our guinea pig for figuring all this out.
Mike, in front of the camera for once. (Britney was nice enough to hold the flash for us while I got this shot.)
