    This photo shoot started off really well. Both kids were really cooperative (the oldest was maybe a bit too cooperative -if that's possible- 'cause I kept getting a lot of fake smiles). But, it's funny, when working with kids and taking their photographs, I've noticed that there is a cut off time for how long they'll cooperate and after that, getting any usable shot is pretty much impossible. I wish I had seen the fence spot first because I like it best, but by the time I found it, the baby was starting to throw a tantrum!
    As far as the last two images go, which do you guys prefer? I can't decide if I like the close up better or not.

    For the last ones, i really can't decide neither... i may be leaning a half a percent towards the close up, though ;)

    Fantastic series! Having two young boys I know all too well how hard it can be to get them to cooperate! The last two are my favorites...really nice lighting on the last one!

    Great shots! Between the last two as they are now, I'd pick the first one. In the second one, my eye is jumping over to the girl on the right. I think a 4:5 crop and a little tighter would work well there.

    Thanks everyone!
    Mark, I quickly tried cropping it before and didn't like it much, but I'm gonna go try again and spend a bit more time on it.

    Yeah, I really like that crop. Square is even better! With it like that, I think it's the best of the bunch. :D
