    All 4 of these are great Jon! Your oldest daughter has beautiful green eyes. You just don't get to see a lot of shots of with deep green, it's usually blue. And of course the youner one's eyes are beautiful as well. Even though I can't see the color of her eyes, I think #4 is my fav here. The angle/glasses combination is super to me :thumbsup:

    What does "soft box" mean?
    They are all really nice, I like the use of light here, coming a bit from the side.
    You eldest daughter is very, very pretty. Be glad she posed for you!
    Does she like her photos?
    I have only one daughter to photograph, and I would love to photograph her much more often, but she hates the very action plus the results (and she would not need to!).

    I think the young one still is too young to be too self-conscious, right? She's just happy, I think :D

    Was the middle one writing a letter maybe, while you took these??? ;) ;) ;)

    Hey lafoto! Here's a pic of my light setup:

    I used the one light and a reflector board to the right for all these shots.
    Middle one was...grumpy :( so no shots today. My eldest is getting more comfortable in front of the cam :thumbup: lucky for me! :D

    These are very nice, but can I make one suggestion? Bring your softbox really close to the subject especially with older kids... it makes their eyes look sooooo nice... as it makes the catchlights bigger and more noticeably squarer... is that the Wescott you have?...


    Here's an example... honestly, I bring that softbox as close as possible - in this case, he could reach out and touch it to the left of him without getting up from where he is seated... I really would like to invest in a 4 foot by 6 foot one for even better catchlights ;) The catchlights on my son look better because he has bigger eyes - my daughter's eyes are very difficult to work with... I'd think your kids would have some great catchlights in their big eyes too! :)

    They are all beautiful and nice and close. (I don't like the light angle on #3..it looks too flat.)
