Thanks for looking and please provide any C&C, these are basically just snapshots because typically none of them will sit long enough for any type of planned shoot..

Try negative bribes... Pose for Daddy or no text-messaging for a month!

You've got some good-looking models, there!

My negative comments are mostly the framing.

#1 quite tightly framed
#2 also too tight, and with horizontal format, you probably should have gotten a little more light in his arm.
#3 horizontal works o.k. here, but top of frame clipped her hair

Those faces made me smile. I agree, I'd think about the framing, and you could try photos that aren't posed, maybe while they're playing (especially the younger ones).

I've found photography can involve waiting and timing - I might spend time looking thru my viewfinder and waiting til I see a moment that might give me a good photo.

Thank you very much for the suggestions...

If these shots were for anyone except myself, I wouldn't have cropped so tight...But I tend to lean towards a tighter crop.

Thanks again for taking a look.

Thanks or checking these out...I wouldn't necessarily calls these posed shots, in almost every case they were playing or doing something else and I just said something or did something to get them to look up at me. In the littlest ones case, my wife was standing behind me and had a funny hat on her head and as soon as baby looked up she laughed.

For my oldest daughter, she was sitting across from me in a chair reading and I said something funny, she looked up and I had a set of bunny ears on my head, and made her smile (not sure why, I always wear bunny ears around the house...Lol)..

Anyway, I really do appreciate the comments and what you describe is typically what I always do...When we're outside playing, I always have my camera in hand or close. Most of the time I never get a shot, but I'm always watching...
