"Mother and Daughter"
© David A. Ziser

I made this all natural light image of LaDawn, my wife and her daughter, Lindsay while in Cabo San Lucas this past November. The sun was setting at one of the most beautiful spots in the world - the restaurant Sunset Da Mona Lisa . We had just a few minutes to get the shot while the light was just right. The lighting wrapped around their faces beautifully resulting in a beautiful "mother/daughter" portrait. In fact LaDawn just presented the image to Lindsay yesterday - she loved it as does LaDawn!! Camera specs; Canon 40D fitted with 17-85mm IS lens at 22mm, F5.6 @ 1/60 second at ISO 500.
Enjoy! --David


  1. who is a mother and who is the daughter?
    I wish a Happy New Year 2008 from Germany.

  2. I love the quality of light in this image and the fact that it is more candid than posed.

    what an amazing shot!
    You really captured the light! Great job. Love the colors! the composition... everything is just great...
    I'd love to see the before and after, to see how you worked the light to get the faces to look so, so, totally fantastic!

    happy new year! my best wishes!
