I had to switch to A6300, the A7rII FPS wasn't fast enough to keep up with cars..

This past weekend I shot a portrait session in Houston of my niece. She wanted some portraits for graduating pharmacy school from Texas A&M. I am by no means a portrait shooter so here is the first image I edited. The location was just beautiful at Hermann Park and the Japanese garden. Huge thanks to Carlo for loaning me his 85 GM lens! I didn't even use my other lenses for the shoot. The 85 GM is just excellent. Thank you Carlo. That lens is a workhorse like you mentioned.

My niece does have her left eye a bit smaller than her right. I think many of us have that. It's fairly normal. I considered opening up the eye in PS CC but am not sure if I should.

The trick is don't shoot them straight ahead. Have her be in a 45 degrees angle and shoot with the small eye closest to the camera. For sure you know the closest to the camera is the biggest, right? it should help a little bit.

I am not a portraitist, but on the rare occasions that I photograph people, I often slightly de-emphasise defects in post. Not entirely remove, just make a little less obvious.

Most of us, deep down, don't subscribe to Oliver Cromwell's reported instruction to his portraitist, to, “Paint me as I am, warts and all.”

So, personally, I would nudge your niece's eye open just a tad, with 'Liquify'. Perhaps like the attached (or less open) where the eyes are different, but less obviously so. You could give her a choice between with modification and without, but not mentioning the eye, just saying that in one you have changed the exposure or something. See which one she chooses.

Either way, beautiful girl, beautifully photographed.

Yep. I had her turn 45 degrees for many of the shots. Thanks Vinz!

Simple fix for her eye: swap one eye for the other.
1. Eliptical marquee tool to select good eye.
2. Ctrl-J for a new layer with selection on it.
3. V to move copied eye over the bad eye.
4. Ctrl-T to bring up free transform. Flip horizontal.
5. Lower opacity and move the eye around until it fits, arrow keys for fine tuning. Once lined up turn opacity to 100%. Keep free transform open as you do this to make eye smaller or larger.
6. Add layer mask. Select B for brush tool. Paint over excess area around eye.
7. Next you need to move the catch light around so it doesn't look weird.
8. Ctrl-alt-shift-E to create a new merged layer. Eliptical marquee tool and select catch light. V to move it to the opposite of the eye. Flip horizontal. Hit enter.
9. Remove the catch light which is in the wrong area with the clone stamp tool.
