Borrowed a guitar from my brother and a violin from a friend to create this simple setup. I'd prefer a cello for the "mommy" but did not have one readily available (my only cellist friend lives in LA). The lights in the background are from a real Christmas tree.
Placed both on a piano bench and lighted from the left by a strip light.

6.6... darn, I had not realized that the parallel challenge, "Bokeh", would bring out a gazillion of OOF Christmas light shots... could have guessed. Ah, whatever... LOL

my 6th 4th :) Thank you very much!

Looks really sweet. And the image is good too, although for my personal taste it looks too sharp.

How lovely! The texture and colors on the baby are terrific. Mommy looks a tad flat, however. A tiny bit of side lighting off to the right?
