I def like the 1st one the best. I think the backdrop will make a huge difference if it is wrinkle free, I think it will really make the shots look great. The natural light is nice, it is a tad uneven, but that is what you learn in time. Lighting is def the key to getting good photos. Once you can grasp the lighting aspect of things, the others will follow. I think another thing that will help is getting a camera (one day) that lets you control the amount of light coming in. From my experience the P&S's are not as accurate as they claim to be, and a f/3.2 on a p&s is almost equivalent to a f/7 or f/8 on a dslr. I am not sure how true that is, but just from my prior experience.
On another note, Cassandra, your really coming a long, I love following your progress! And your kids, oh goodness they are SO cute!
I completely agree with Kati's cc. He looks like quite the little model! So adorable!
ironing thoes sheets every time would be a pain seeing i have a 7wk old and i gotta move fast. I know it will make a great difference. one day i will take the time 2 iron them out. im still working on the light and im pleased with the cc from you...im so willing to learn. thnks for taking the time 2 look
Just popping in to quickly say that this lighting is SO much better than your flash photos. I agree about the backdrop and do prefer the first edit.

How cute! I think you have already progressed! Well done! Your kids are adorable!
I too like the first one best. But, I also really like the last pic as well. I know it's hard but iron out that backdrop and it'll make a huge difference! Loving how much you are sharing!

I just wanted to mention that if you hate ironing (like me) you might consider picking up some fleece. I just throw it in the dryer for a few minutes before setting up a shoot... it gets the wrinkles out, absorbs the light and is inexpensive...
