Dresses and more dresses

I got a call from a clothing distributor who wanted pictures to distribute to her stores along with her dresses. The manufacturer's images were really sub-par and she wanted something better. There's a ridiculously tight deadline and I pretty much had to find my own models. I'm giving her a pretty good price and she's letting me put my name on the bottom of the images distributed to the stores. And if this works out well, it's a twice yearly job.

This is what I did with my first batch of models:

1.

2.

3.

4.

5.

6.

and a couple of fun images I did for these girls
7.

8.

9.

I love the group shot! Looks like a bunch of cuties! In the first one her face looks soft to me, but the rest look spot on.

what an awesome gig! you got some cute shots there. Smile

the first one looks like it needs a bit of brightening though (at least to me)

Very nice. I am sure she will be very happy! A few look like they could be a bit brighter... but I am on a laptop, so it may be me.

Also, I am wondering about the shirts under some of the dresses? I understand the modesty, but it makes it tough to see the true fit/design on a couple of the dresses...

how cute! Smile what a great opportunity too. A few of them could use some brightening too. Could be just me though. And I didn't see it then but I do now, about the shirts under the dresses. I thought they were part of the dresses but I see they aren't now. Smile really cute dresses though.

About the shirts - this company is an Orthodox Jewish company, marketing to Orthodox Jewish customers. This is how the dresses will be worn. This is the only way to market them. You'll notice that anytime I show pictures of my daughter (from age 4 and up in my household - that varies with different family backgrounds) she is wearing something with sleeves. And starting next summer when she is 7 she'll be wearing sleeves to her elbow. Many start that at age 5. So that's why these dresses are being shown this way. The one with the criss-crossed back I still want to do on her with short sleeves underneath, but unless they'd send me size 2s, there's be no point in showing them sleeveless.

And re: the softness in number one - it's not there in the high-res. And I don't see brightening issues. Which ones do you think need brightening?

that's very interesting about the shirts, I had no idea! love learning something new.

as far as the brightening, the first one really does seem on the dark side to me. and the girl on the right (our left) in number 5 needs more light on her face - it's much darker than the rest of the picture.

Love them, TFS!

The only one I would be leary about sending is #3. With her arms crossed, she kind of looks like she doesn't want to be in the dress, KWIM?

Funny Kristen - that was one of her favorites! I went into this knowing that she wanted poses that weren't so much about the dress. She wanted the kids to look alive and like they were having fun. But oh yes, it has to show off the dress. LOL

Its my eyes too then! They are beautiful pics, but I have to agree they look a tad soft to me, especially #1.

You did a great job showing off these dresses and posing the girls. I'm sure they will be happy with the results! Thanks for sharing.
