    Here are some photos of a portrait shoot I did awhile ago. Please let me know what you think. Couldn't get this little girl to smile for anything! :grumpy:

    These are great. So what if the child wouldn't smile, it happens. Her eyes are sharp which counts for a lot! Simply background. I like it.

    All of them came out quite, but on #2.... there's a problem.... - her hands are there but... what's this?

    OH MY GOD SHE HAS NO FINGERS!!!! AHHHHHHH!!!!

    A shame, really. Otherwise, great job.

    BTW I see hotspots on her left shoulder on the first two (three if you count the duplicate).

    She has pretty blue eyes. If I were you, I'd lighten them up! Make them pop.

    my kids never smile for a professional photographer.
    one of the reasons I decided to get myself a half decent camera and learn to use it.

    but I like those shots, I'd be plenty satisfied if that was my baby.

    I agree - but that last one is very well done - look at those big eyes!!! Even if she doesn't smile she's a great model.

    Nice shots. Her eyes would be awesome with a catchlight.

    Nice shots! I agree that bringing out the eyes would really finish these shots off!

    Something like this maybe?
