Her expression needs to be better IMHO. To me she not feeling comfortable and it is showing in these shots.

Well, I agree with bobbyz, the model appears too "stern" whether it's from discomfort in her environment, or something else. It actually seems a bit "off" for a senior shoot...more in the glamor realm of things. But, what do I know?....kids these days seem to go from snotty-nose kids to worldly experts overnight. -?

Interesting shots, though, and nice use of reflections.

I agree with the expression... I like smiles, smirks, "candid" laughing and looking off camera....

I also think it would look really cool with a solid black background.

Oh, and her eyes are crazy! lol

Thanks for the comments, we were going for the serious/glamor look for the entire shoot. That's what we decided at the get go. We're doing some gymnastics next with more of a smile and fun atmosphere.

Also, RJHarris, I believe youve exported/uploaded your images in AdobeRGB or some other color space that is not sRGB. They look like total zombie skin color on my phone and TV. Great images, just a heads up! :D

Have all of my images looked like that? I wonder what I'm doing wrong?? They seem to look fine on my android phone, android tablet and my desktop (calibrated). Here is one where she is smiling. I did really crank up the background clarity and saturation in this one a bit but left her skin tone pretty much the same.

5 faves from my most recent session. This girl was amazing! Such a natural model and she (and her mother) had everything plotted out when it came to wardrobe and props. She is a mucisian on her way to France for the summer, so we incorporated both into the shoot. She also loves all things vintage and that was very fun to incorporate as well. Fee free to ask me anything.:

This one took a little longer because we had to wait for the sun (started too early,) otherwise, sessions like this take around 2 hours for me.

Great work, Kristen!!! Two hours...efficient use of time!!! I would imagine that the mother and daughter being prepared with props and wardrobe was a big help in this particular shoot being as you have such a varied assortment of images/dress... ?

This one was actually closer to 3 hours because our timing was off (due to some traveling.) Typically, I limit the wardrobe changes to 3 in total, but I gave some leeway this time because they are good friends of ours. But, yes, they had everything fully prepared -- down to the stickers on the suitcase! Made my job SO easy. :)

I dont remember if all of your images have been this way. What program do you use just before uploading them?

Kristen, I'm glad you mentioned the suitcase. These days it seems most suitcases are large sized so folks can carry everything including the kitchen sink. The one that she is carrying is petite in size (which matches her physical size nicely) and fits the "era" of the image. Excellent job all the way around by the model, mother, and photographer!!! I hope one day to consistently produce this quality of work...but, it'll take major life changes to make it happen, I'm afraid. So, I'll enjoy what I do now and work towards Bryan Peterson's "Perfect Picture" and who knows, one day... ;-)a
