Sharing some more!!

Hope your not sick of me...lol! My business has taken off recently to the point where I'm shooting 6-10 sessions a week. I try to share a couple from each but let me know if you get sick of it.

Today's (got rained out after 15min, so we've rescheduled)

This little guy was very 'busy' but it made for a fun lifestyle session. There backyard was gorgeous!!

This baby was SOO fussy, I'm not to happy with what i've ended up with so I may do a small reshoot, depending on how they like their proofs.

6-10 a week? that seems like a lot, I can't imagine being that busy. how long do you spend PPing a session? I get distracted online so it takes me FOREVER. that's probably why I can't imagine being as busy as you. Wink You have some lovely images here!! I'd love to know your settings on the multiple people photos. Just curious what ap you use to get the eyes in focus on everyone.

Also curious on the ap with the group photo.
I LOVE the engagment pics. Is that girl a model? If not she missed her calling.
I also LOVE # 5

WOW! That is a lot of sessions! WTG! Yahoo

These are my favs and why-
1. love the comp, how the sidewalk makes your eyes go straight to him. What a doll!
7. what a great capture. Wish it was further back, but still like it.
8. love the pp on this one, just like the one you posted before.

more awesomeness!!! these are FANTASTIC!

I just love the way your colors seem so rich w/out looking unnaturally saturated. Your conversions are also great ... lots of contrast w/out being over done.

WOW!

Yeah 6-10 is a lot, but i'm managing. All my client info, contracts and forms are on a seperate site, it keeps things paperless and easy. I use google calander and Studio Cloud to manage appointments and clients. I have a workflow check list so that I dont miss anything.

And I think the main thing is I only show 20-30 proofs and spend about 1 min editing each. If I didnt strive for perfect images sooc, I think that I would be easily overwhelmed. Here's a few sooc with settings

1/350~F2.8~iso 200

For the family shot my setting were 1/250 F4 iso 200 focal length 45mm

I like #5 and #8. But I actually love your SOOCs---especially the 2nd one, to me it is much better having his whole head in the pic.
