    Default Family Photo Shoot CC please!

    Had a fun family photo shoot. These are some friends of mine. GREAT family. Laid back and super easy. The boy has had a lot of medical issues, so he is a momma/daddy boy. He wasn't too happy with me and my big black box, but I did the best I could. I got a few smiles. Anyways, would love some cc here.

    2. Maybe a bit blue? He's naturally really pale, so I struggled with this. Mom and Dad are a lot darker than him.

    I realize to some this might be an out-take, but he is giving her a kiss! Mom loved this moment, so I am giving it to her!

    Oh fun!

    I'm not a huge fan of #1. I like that she's being playful, and it's a sweet smile. But I'm not liking that I can't see her arms. A different angle would have been better IMO.

    #2 might be a little blue... but I think mostly what I'm seeing is the reflection of the blue clothes on his arms, because the face doesn't look too blue to me.

    I think I prefer the b&w of #3. The crop is more pleasing to me, and the blown spots on her dress stand out to me more in color.

    I LOVE #4 for the sweet moment you captured. As a mom, that would be my favorite.

    All in all, I think you did well. I see that there are some nearly blown spots on some of the clothing. It's a problem I've been struggling with myself recently. I tend to like my pictures slightly over exposed as to slightly under exposed, because I prefer the brightness generally. But I think I might start playing around with bumping it down a tad.

    Adorable family!

    1 and 2 look cool to me, but the color in 4 looks a lot better. Maybe try to bump 1 and 2 to get closer to that.

    I like color better in #3, but would like to see the original crop in color too! I bet your friend will adore this picture!

    I think it is so great that you get out there and practice and take pics for others!!! TFS

    Great job with this shoot, Sadie! Your work is looking so beautiful!

    My comments to add to what's already been said:

    #1 - The arms don't bother me because I can tell what she's doing by her forward-leaning posture. She looks so happy, you captured a great expression.

    #2 - Very cute, just looks too bright to me.

    #3 - I like the colour version better. Really beautiful shot of the two of them!

    #4 - Beautiful moment here, so fun and full of joy! Beautiful colour here too.
