TWiP Family 71: Sandra Coan on Studio Lighting

headshotIn this interview with Sandra Coan, we talk about studio lighting, maternity photos and the wonders of film. Sandra photographs families and newborns in her Seattle studio. She is the mother of twin boys and in addition to running her own photography business, she founded the family photography website, Little Bellows. Sandra also teaches courses about studio lighting for film photographers and how to run a successful photography business.

Sandra loves studio lighting. In our conversation we talk about how she started out photographing with natural light in clients’ homes and now photographs in her studio with strobes. Sandra talks about why how using film is a different process and why she teaches classes specifically for film photographers.
