I hereby present you Denitsa Stoyanova. A mother, a wife, a model at Inter Model's. We did a really great shoot with her in my studio. Soft light with soft expressions. All in my favorite black and white.
It is a simple lighting setup - just one light. I am using 135cm octagonal softbox by Elinchrome with a Profoto D1 studio light. The softbox is pointed downwards slightly above her with the edge close to the head. You have to play a bit in order to get it work for you and not let the eyes go dark.
Lighting: 1.35m Octagonal soft box
Model: Nikon d800e
Shutter Speed: 1/200 second
Focal Length: 85 mm
ISO Speed: 100
