So happy this one got a ribbon!

We had so much fun doing that. I have a super family! Our young little boy was already sleeping and we tried to make this shot in our kitchen. I was aware this was a tough one for several reasons. I knew we had to find a way to convince our son Andrea (2 years old) to be part of this shot, so we left some jam where he had to stand on the chair. Before that I tried to set all the speedlights on the scene hiding them to get the best light on my wife Loredana and on Andrea. Jam finished after first 2/3 attempts!!! So we used biscuits and it worked very well, Andrea and Loredana are stunning actors.
