I think I love it! :-)
I was going to show you a pullback of my shot, but there's a bit of construction going on in our living room so I didn't want to embarass myself.
For my lovely studio: I set a piece of white board (from Lowe's) on top of a giant package of paper towels, on top of an unopened Christmas present (the massive dollhouse).
I threw a white blanket over our couch and laid a string of white Christmas tree lights over it.
Snow = epson salt ;-) (clever, I know)
I also ended up using my Speedlite because the natural light from behind me was being blocked by our Christmas tree. I set the flash on 1/16 power, and bounced it off the wall to my right.
Happiest of Fridays to you! :-) ♥
