I think they are very cute, however they are over exposed.... the top of her head, the bench on the top rail and the sky are void of detail.

Any tips, aside from keeping the sky out of the frame, on how to get the subject exposed properly and keep the sky exposed right?

Is that better? Or do you think the exposure should come down more?

Personally I like the last one. A fill flash would do wonders in this case to get more detail out of the blown spots.
A GD filter would help with the sky as well but I normally don't care about the blown sky in a portrait but it's always nice to have a beautiful one as an added bonus.

Ah, thanks! I'll give fill flash a try next time and see how it goes. We're doing more photos tomorrow, there should be a nice cloud layer :)

No problem. I'm sure you will :) I've lived in P-town for most of my life and know you'll be enjoying lots of rain and clouds haha.

I Know what its like to photograph a really blond baby! Sometimes a little dodging in PS helps bring the detail back to the really light areas. Def work on the lighting. Shade and fill flash are your friends ;)

I think this is a suitable enhancement if picture is then framed.

Its not bad... the knot in the wood is distracting from the subject.

Would you suggest cloning it out?

I like the knot in the wood because it appears to be what the child is looking at

^ i agree - she seems to be distracted by it too =). it'd be nice to see her eyes shine a bit more. super cute kiddo!
