    Thanks and thanks again to all who responded for your advice.

    I did end up doing some additional processing of these - mostly to remove those distracting red birds and whiten the boys teeth a bit in a couple of the outdoor photos Not sure why they were not white - maybe a reflection off the red shirts or a shadow? I also reviewed that last pose in front of the fireplace and found one shot where the youngest sitting on the floor wasn’t quite grimacing his smile as much (see below). I wish we had been able to move that blue rug but it would have involved moving a very large sectional sofa and a couple of chairs. Should I clone it out or leave it?

    I do like that shot.

    If it were me, I would try cloning it out. Failing that, I might try to darken it to make it less prominent. Nice job, good luck.

    I would leave the rug in.

    I ended up asking her if she wanted me to get rid of it and she said no so I’m done!

    I’d like to think I’m improving a bit with each portrait session but they are so few and far between that I have to refresh every time on poses, how to use my flash, how to edit skin, teeth etc. Once I do my daughter and her friends’ senior sessions next year I’m done until someone in my extended family has a baby!
