    Okay so I finally found some time to go out and shoot some portraits. This was what I call my first real session attempt for outdoor photography portraits. Most of my other portraits have been mostly window light. I have done other outdoor portraits but I am usually by myself with the kids and we are usually just around the house and I can only spend about 15 minutes before a melt down occurs. This session my wife and I drove around to a couple of locations and I was able to spend an hour or so. I already was able to learn alot from this session. Anyway C&C always welcomed.

    FYI: My older daughter just wouldn't give us a smile and my little one was very cranky, which was really out of her charater, she is always smiling usually. Well it's been a couple of days since the shoot and now she has a fever, so I'm thinks she was already feeling sick when we took these pictures.

    I like them all but #5 is my favorite. Where did you shoot these? The locations are great! They are beautiful girls, you are truly blessed. :)

    These are very cute, but I would just watch out when cutting off body parts - you cut into their feet in several photos :)

    My fav is number 1 - she looks so angelic! :)

    These are great, but in 1 her left eye looks funny and her skin is washed out.

    In 2, I don't like that there is no separation between the taller girl's head and the statue.

    Between 4 and 5 I can't decide which one is my favorite.

    I like #5 a lot. It feels like they are unaware of you. :)

    Great photos.

    #2 though looks funny to me..like the bowl is growing out of her head.

    I like #5 very much! Very angelic.

    I think you did a great job, especially for your first shoot outside! I love #3 but wish you didn't cut off the base of her little foot.

    Again, no. 5 is a stand-out.

    This is a great example of how a bit of foreground can add depth to a portrait.

    Nice!

    Thanks for all the great C&C!

    These photos were shot at different townhouse developments close to my own townhome.

    As far as the feet being cut off, I double checked to see if I just cropped the photos that way, but I didn't the originals have the feet slightly chopped, so I will make sure to pay attention to that from here on out.

    Thanks again.
