I just got my reflector and had to try it out with my kids =)

I did figure out that I was blinding the kids with using the silver in the sun! LOL
Switched to the white pretty fast! LOL

This is a beautiful set! The colors are great and that reflecter is also working well. However, I think that on some of your photos it is working to well. On the first and second shots her skin is very overexposed and almost to the point of being blown out. Other then that I think they are great photos and thanks for sharing.

Looks good to me, especially the 4th one where the light seems to be perfectly balanced. Looks like your reflector is going to be a good tool.

These are great! You sure know how to take very nice and brightly exposed (I love it when people expose brightly without overexposing, makes me so much happier to see bright and colorful happy photos), but the detail on the faces is a little bit lacking. It looks almost as if your children's faces are totally doll like, which I know isn't the case. Sometimes we like to see that, but I would have liked to see more facial detail in this case. I think your new reflector might have to do with that, I would recommend trying some new techniques with it. These are a great start though.

My children have pretty great, smooth skin to start, but the reflector definatly filled it in. LOL
It was my first time, so I am SURE I did it wrong! LOL

Nice use of reflectors. FWIW, I find the eye post-processing a little over-done.

Actually, I never even touched the eyes... not even a dodge!
That is what the reflector does! =)
Fills them with light! =)

Great job Carrie, it is obvious that you got the hang of it more as you went along. I'm sure you will get great results once you feel comfortable with it.
