It's All About the Lighting

Normally I'm a natural light on location kinda girl but sometimes it's just not possible to shoot outdoors.  So what's a photographer to do in this case?  Get yourself some good lighting!  So I went online to YescomUSA and grabbed a portable umbrella/lighting kit and was pretty happy with what I got.  Here's a little more about the kit:
