Some great shots here but I think a few folks are confusing general snapshots with portraits.

+1!

Personally, 90% my portraits are environmental portraits:

An environmental portrait is a portrait executed in the subject's usual environment, such as in their home or workplace, and typically illuminates the subject's life and surroundings. The term is most frequently used of a genre of photography

By photographing a person in their natural surroundings, it is thought that you will be able to better illuminate their character, and therefore portray the essence of their personality, rather than merely a likeness of their physical features. It is also thought that by photographing a person in their natural surroundings, the subject will be more at ease, and so be more conducive to expressing themselves, as opposed to in a studio, which can be a rather intimidating and artificial experience

If it moves, snap it - and if it doesn't move, snap it twice just in case it does move!

This has been posted before, but does show that the much-maligned built-in flash can do good work for fill light. G10.

Lol yes she does. The momma said "do your sexy pose" and she did that. She's only 1 and 4 months! :confused: lol I'm in for it! Since day one of her birth we've been taking photos of her. She can actually take photographs with my g11 and iPhone. She's a natural lol

I like the pix. Very nice shot of what looks to be a family....people in pix look good...background looks good....like the bokeh.

I have a G 12 and a 430 flash, but not the off camera cable, etc. After seeing this pix, I think this ability to use the flash off the hotshoe is something to consider.

I have the cord but never use it anymore. having the STE2 and a good speedlight gives me studio lighting in a very portable package

I thought this one was the best but looked better with a severe crop as the hands were a big distraction.
That's only my opinion of course.

Cheers.

Wrong...I disagree. I've seen this shot many times in several threads and have always thought it was a great balance of fill and ambient done be the little on-board flash. Love the original. Your crop looses all the essence that the original conveys. That's my opinion.
