Very nice. I too use my 55-250 so that I'm out of the way allowing to be themselves. Keep up the great work!

Love these shots and most especially the first with the two girls looking out the window frame. Beautiful children, beautiful lighting and how much I love the colorful wardrobe with the bright flowers! So many of my clients want to wear all white and I wish more often they'd go for color.

Did you end up using fill flash?

Wow.. This is an old thread resurrected.
Seeing the shot in the 8th post (two girls looking out a window) was moment that I decided that there was a 200mm lens in my future. I was having an awful time getting nice candids of my young children, I thought the extra reach would help.

It was overcast. One of those great days where there was a total cloud cover, but only thin. The time stamp on a random shot was just after 1pm.

Cloudy/overcast days are just perfect for outdoor photography.

How did you get the colours to be so bright? Flash? What settings please?

No flash. Colors were baked very hot with Vibrance in Lightroom. I probably wouldn't process quite this hot today but this was one of my first portrait shoots with my kids.

My signature is outdated again. I have a 7D. This was shot with the first SLR I ever owned, an XSi.
