    I haven't designed the card yet...but I think I might use these photos.

    I'm a newbie, so I don't have anything productive to say.

    But, Gosh, they are the cutest children!

    Wonderful pics. The eyes in the second have amazing light in them. And the bokeh'd (new word, use it) patches of light behind them are great. These will definitely make the best cards.

    Awesome pics! How did you do this? What lens did you use? Was there a christmas tree behind them?

    My light set-up is all natural light...I'm really blessed with natural light...but I'm sure it would work with studio lights too.

    For the background I used a net of small lights...the kind that goes on outside bushes and just hung it on the black felt, which was hanging over my background stand.

    ***The key to the bokeh is to bring your subject like 3-4 feet in front of the background, get close to them and open up wide with your aperture. ***

    I used my 50 1.4 at f1.4
