    That second pose is very cute. I don't really like the colors of the pics though...there is kind of an orangeish cast over the whole thing.

    Are you using a snoop light? The lighting could have been a little better from over the top of your model (to cast light on the top of the hair centrally), a little more light from the lower left would have been good to. I agree that the background could do with improving ;)

    Otherwise, yes, they are good shots.

    Regards
    Chris
