Miss Mallory

Not on the "word" theme today, but I guess I could say that words cannot describe the love I have for this girl. I want to say "little girl", but she's really not that little anymore! She's 11! She's my only daughter... she puts up with a lot having three brothers! I set up the strobe lights today because her friend is coming over for some portraits, so Mallory was kind enough to let me practice my lighting set-up on her!



I welcome and appreciate CC! Do you like how that first pose of her is a lot like my self-portrait from a few days ago? I just realized that!

She is just beautiful!

The similarity to your self-portrait was the first thing I noticed, Meg. She's adorable. My DD is 11 too (well, she'll be 12 next month).

Melissa said...

What a sweetie. I hear you on the love for a DD but mine is 9 so I still can call her my baby for a few more years ;)

Do you have the settings for your shot? It will help in the CC department. I'm not much of a studio shooter, but they appear dark and a bit dull. Not the subject, just the lighting;) Does that make sense? She's got a terrific smile by the way, looks like her mom.

She's a cutie! I agree that they look a bit dark, but I know zilch about studio lighting...

Very nice lighting and adorable daughter you have!

It IS really like your photo, and I especially like the first photo of the 3. I like her pose, her facial expression, and how the light is reflected in her hair. She's beautiful!

Krystle said...

Awww how nice of her to help you out. She looks great in these. On your light/lights I would trying opening up your F stop, or down your SS at least a stop. :)

She is so pretty! There is a strong mommy daughter resemblance.

I like these! I find that the crop of #1/#2 is distracting--I'd like to see more of her belt/dress, or less. Just the hint of a different color draws my eye there instead of to her sweet face.
