    This is a good friend of mine and I practiced using her as my model yesterday. I am going to give them to her (of course) but would LOVE some c&c first. Thank you!

    #4 - can't see the face, for all I know its an Alien :D
    #6, very dreamy, I'd BW it

    Overall, good composition, exposure. They are bit too soft for my flavor. It could be a lens/technique issue.

    keep on shooting and improving

    I think you should try making some of them B&W , would look better for some.

    very nice pictures :D

    I am so glad you all like them! I really thought I would get a lot of editing comments. Also, I have made many of them BW and Sepia. Kinda weird there is the EXACT same post under this one though.....

    Here are a few more since you guys like them!

    very nice, crisp and clear, I do agree with not being able to see her face, but I think it adds to it, I like them :)

    Personally I like to see a bit of skin (ie bare belly) on a maternity shoot, but that's just me.

    These are nice! Ultimately, remember, it's still basically a portrait situation. The BW versions are better, and maybe part of why is that the light in your shoot isn't very nice. Early or late, the light's warmer, prettier, for this kind of shoot. Shot at those times, your color versions might work.
    So I guess the takeaway is that it's almost always all about the light!
