Hey all, I've been busy and it's been a while. Just bought a 43" Westcott umbrella and stand, so this is my first attempt with off-camera flash.

You have two beautiful girls! Congrats! Would love to have seen this pic with the baby naked. You could do the same pose with Mom bringing the baby's legs up to hide her Girly Bits. I just find the white outfit with the cars on it to be ??????? a bad clothing choice maybe? Even a plain white onesy would suit the set up a bit better, in my opinion. I found myself standing on my head on my desk trying to see it better because I'm an idiot, fyi. Again, congrats on the two gorgeous women in your life! Looking forward to seeing more of your yummy baby girl in the future.

I agree with everything Sue said. The beauty, the clothes and the angle. I didn't get on my head (I'm not as agile as Sue) though, just turned my head totally sideways and laid it on the desk. ;) :)

Thank you all for the comments, and the naked pose would be excellent. Can you give me some direction on a better angle?

Try laying on the floor parallel to them or at least have them both looking up at you. ;)

I'm standing upright again, and thought I'd add something else. You might have removed The Mama's watch, AND the hair elastic from her wrist. If it doesn't add to the photo, it shouldn't be there, competing for attention visually. Hair elastics are the bane of my photographic existence as long haired women (especially teenagers) always have them on their wrists and I"m always having to ask them to remove them. Just a detail, but as you get more comfortable shooting and the technical stuff becomes more second nature, you will be able to attend more to the detail stuff. Keep shooting and definitely keep posting.
