1 looks a tad under exposed
2 a little too much flash

I think you did very well for your first attempt! #3 is my favorite of the set (after some red eye fix).

For me the subject's hands are the hardest thing to figure out how to pose.. so it is one of the first things I look at in other's pictures. Not crazy about how you have her left hand square to the camera in the last shot or the limp hands effect in the first image....

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you for taking a look, post is definately a weakness of mine right now. I have been the team photographer for my daughters cheerleading gym for the last 3 years. The girls range in age from 4 to 18 and some of the girls are starting to ask me to take senior pictures.

Watch your cropping. Try to keep it standard just in case they want prints. Don't be afraid to crop tighter in camera by getting closer to your subject. This will give you more control over your DOF and allow you to separate the subject from the background more. I can tell you had a loose crop when you shot these.

Yes she is a natural in front of the camera. I charge her very little in exchange for a realease to build my portfolio. There is a chance I might do a family portrait of her and her sisters for their father. I need to produce a list of dos and donts what not to wear etc.
