What a week it has been! Baby has had the stomach flu for 7 days now, and somewhere in there I got the bug, too. Needless to say, it's been miserable on our end. Today things started looking up. Baby is eating more and not so sluggish. His spirits were so dramatically improved that I decided to finally set up an abbreviated version of my home studio in the dining room. I left the Alien Bee in the garage and used a simple configuration consisting of my speedlight with an umbrella and a 42" reflector. Here's my baby boy giving his best smile in days!
