I really like your pose selection.
There are a couple here where the focus is off.
I would probably pay a little more attention to teeth whitening.

Overall, not bad. Just a couple of things to pay more attention to. :)

Might be they moved. 1/125 with a 200 would be hard to hold anyway. Could also be 3.5 on a full frame?? I like them other than that.

Thanks, I appreciate the comments. #2 focus was my fault for being at 2.8 just not enough DOF.

You have guts taking four people as your first paid gig...my first paid gig was of a couple, and I had issues getting myself to pose them and stuff but it was my first couple shoot too :P. I didn't ask for anything but they gave me money anyways. I like them, but I ran into the same problem with OOF images :/ nice work :)

There actually ended up being 8 people in total. The mother's parents, her grandmother, and uncle.
I defiantly learned a ton from it, now if only I remember it next time lol.

Hahah :P Yeh I agree with that, my second shoot was only a week later and I swear I forgot everything from the week before cuz I was so nervous! The sun was just about to set when we got on location and I was FREAKING out that my 50mm 1.8 couldn't handle it...ended up giving 53 photos to the client cuz they all were great in my eyes :P....I need to learn to take less photos....or at least process less ;P

Really liked 3-5. On #6, move them further down the wall so they are not right up against the downspout. Then work on getting the dof to get them, but blur the rest of the wall, or crop/clone to get rid of the downspouts. They just disrupt the photo.
Others have mentioned the OOF, which seems to just be an issue with aperture being too wide open. But for a first paid job, you did well and I would hope they were happy with the results.
