Littel angel

Hi there, this is my first try at children portraiture. I wanted to use my studio light an AD-200 with a Photek Softlighter but I have noticed that the beautiful light coming from behind me was all that I needed. A bit of photoshop and thi is it. Shot with a Nikon d3s and 70-200 at 150mm. C&C are welcome!
