Yesterday my sweet family friends came from out of town for a photo session in down town Salem. We had so much fun taking pictures and laughing! I wanted to share this beautiful family with everyone. Thanks for looking.

Nice set! I really like your technique and the use of contrast. The sparkly bokeh in the last photo is pretty, too.

I'm not sure how much feed back you want, so I'll keep my comments kind of general.
Let me know if you want anything different.
You're right ... this is a truly beautiful family! And on top of that, downtown Salem seems to be a really cool place to shoot!
My favorite of this set is #1. I love the idea of it with mom and dad in the background and the kids up front. I love the dappled light. I know it's hard to shoot in and I know a lot of photogs don't like it. But I love the effect it creates for you here. I love the mood it sets. It seems perfect for this kind of shot.
I'll bet your friends really ADORE these photos!
I would love any feed back you can give. I love hearing what I can do different or what I should have done, helps me grow! Also editing tips...c/c away please.

That is a lovely family. I am still a newbie, so you can ignore me if you want!
1) I love the idea here. I think the two girls are in focus, but the boy is OOF.
2) the dappled light is a bit much here. Maybe crop a bit closer. I like the look you were going for though.
3) LOVE the barefoot, blue jeans and white shirts. I like this idea too! I think the dad and little girl seem a bit OOF.
I love the light & bokeh but the 1st two pics look almost all OOF to me, except maybe the ferns & bricks; the other two have at least 1 area where I do see focus. But I'm thinking in the 1st two pics the processing was an intentional softening? I love the lighting on the porch photo! at least 2 of the family appear to have pin lights, but I'm not 100% sure. My fave pic is the last one, I Love the bokeh, wow!
