If you have not been to Phipps Conservatory Winter Flow Show & Winter Light Garden, it is certainly worth the trip. Every year the Phipps Conservatory showcases a beautiful holiday display which made a great location for twins Emily and Drew holiday shoot. Whether it be for a single child or a large family, the conservatory is a perfect place to capture your holiday memories. There are plenty of rooms that have a variety of festive and ornate backgrounds as well as a colorful outdoor garden light display. Emily and Drew were full of energy and in awe of all there was to see. It was a joy to watch their reaction in every new location we went. We were fortunate to also catch a glimpse of the concert playing that night.
I photographed this session mainly with one speedlight. Since photographing children usually requires a higher shutter speed due to their constant movements, external lighting is necessary. I did lower the speed to capture the movement of the train when photographing them gazing at the large train display. The slower shutter speed caused the train to blur showing movement while keeping the children in focus.
Please enjoy the photos and have a happy holiday season!
