Sisters

Twin 4-year-old girls and their 6-week-old sister.

I know there's a bit of haloing at the legs. I'll fix it if they order this image.

Great shots. For some reason it looks like the girl with the short hair, her face is a bit too smooth.

long haired sister just wasn't smiley.... Smile love the kissing one! Baby sis isn't exactly thrilled with the bombardment! hehehe

Esti...do you use a snoot for your background/hair light? I have a third light that I want to add to my setup but I'm not exactly sure how to get that burst behind the subjects!

These are INCREDIBLE Esti! Not that that's a surprise for you. Smile

I love them all, but #1 and #6 both stand out to me. I just love the interaction in both. They both tug at my heart strings. And I really love the treatment on #6.

TFS!

Thanx everyone. The client is really happy with her preview and I hope it translates to a big order. She has a good circle of friends that I'm hoping to lure into the studio LOL. I actually did product work for her husband in the past, so you just never know what will bring somebody in.

EL, I'll look closely at the full-size images to see if it's oversmoothed. I barely smoothed the skin so it's probably ok in the full-size. Sometimes downsizing does that.

shutterbug - funny that you mention her not smiling. When they came in the mom told me that her daughter has a funny smile and looks best in a serious face. It's really true. I have plenty smiling ones of her, too, but she looks better serious.

As for a snoot - no. I use a grid on the bg light. I have a 30 degree and a 40 degree that I switch out depending on the number of subjects. And for the hairlight I have a stripbox with a honeycomb grid on it.

#2 & 3 are my favs. I am loving the pink paper! Baby looks so uncomfortable in #4, but if they were my kids, I would still buy it!!
