Well, it's not really mine. My brother sponsored my photo business after I photographed his family in his back yard. He provided my first business loan and lets me use his yard whenever I like for portrait sessions. Here are four samples from today's senior portrait session taken at various locations in his yard.

I find the brightness in the background of the 3rd one a bit distracting but the rest are very nice. You've got a good variety of poses and locations/backdrops. I think the first one is probably my favorite.

PS wish my yard was that nice... :)

Love em, Tom

Lovely girl to work with. The bg's for the 1st 2 are great. As for the last 2, I'm not real wild about the "hands on hip" arm position, and the last shot has the background barn siding a little *too* in focus for my tastes.

Thanks

Thanks to all for your comments and feedback.

I agree about the bright bg on #3. Sharpness isn't a problem in the originals. I may have lost a bit in posting. And we tried a number of poses and I happened to post the hands on hips twice here. I've been experimenting with various poses. I like the variety.

As for the model - She's a friend of my daughter and young woman who's very comfortable with herself. She was so relaxed and easy to work with that the session was a really fun.

Thanks again for taking the time guys..

Tom
