My only comment would be fill flash. Yes I know natural light but I find the backgrounds a little to blown out on a few of them.
Other than that nice work.

they ALL had fill flash (except the very last one)... 580ex on hss LOL
it was a very very bright morning and i was shooting into the sun a lot of the time
only about 2 of the shots were in any shade

they have been processed with totally rad actions - that tends to lighten the bg quite a lot

You captured some really nice moments, but the lighting is really working against you in most of them. What time of day did you shoot?

due to baby's schedule they wanted to have the shoot at 9am, so all the pics were between 9 & 10am... sunrise here is just after 6am tho, so the light was really too strong
