    Well I tentatively post here as this was my first stranger, paid session. I am still in the "portfolio building" pay arena, which is really just covering my gas and actual price of prints. (I'm offering 50% off the print prices while I get my feet wet). So, in any case... I thought I would be so nervous, but I felt ready. All shots were taken using all natural light. I had teh baby on a beanbag with a soft dark blanket. I have only processed these few that I want to put up tonite for her as a "sneak peak", so I wanted to get opinions first. I plan to put up about 25 I think overall. Does that seem right for a real session?

    Anyway.. These poses are mostly cliche, mostly done a million times over.. but it was my first shot at it, so they feel special to me :blushing: CC always welcome :)
    (do the shadows on 1 and 2 bother anyone? I liked the light ratio at the time, but now I'm wondering if the blanket was just casting too much of a shadow there..)

    Thanks Lacey and Janet! I'm adding a few more to the OP,... hopefully its not overwhelmingly too many pictures to CC. Janet, the stuff on the babies feet is flaky skin. As she was just born, she had skin flaking everywhere! I should have thought to ask the mom to put some lotion on her.

    Congrats Kelly! Great job, but a couple of things to watch for...

    The crop in #1 and #4 seem a little too tight. Its acceptable to crop the top and side of the head sometimes, but not the cheek or chin as well. Be sure to leave some space around the side and bottom of the face if you are going to crop close.

    Other than that, the quality, skin tone, clarity, and sharpness is all there. The tones in the black and white ones are beautiful. Well done!

    Thanks so much NJ :D I agree, those crops are a bit tight aren't they. Especially 1. If I had just backed up a hair..
