Here are some shots from our Christmas card photoshoot with my 8 month old daughter.
Critiques are welcome.

My monitor is not calibrated and they looked good on my screen, but they printed a little dark. Could be my monitor or Sam's club printing.

Bounced off camera 430exii (didn't have time to setup umbrella), power around 1/16-1/8 IIRC

85mm, 1/100, f1.8

85mm, 1/100, f2.2 (missed the focus on this one, but her face was too cute)

Excellent. You've managed to get soft and directional lighting on her without blowing out the tree lights. You appear to have done this by getting distance between her and the tree, which allows you to create independent zones of light.

Well done!

P.S. Dark prints are usually caused by having your screen's brightness set too high.
