Thank you!!! I've done basic portraits for family members (with autofocus). But never a senior picture thing. And being a friend instead of family member made me more nervous. But it was fun once we got there. We had several other poses in a different outfit, and some with her best friend and her boyfriend. I had so much fun I want to do it again. Lol
Actually, I've got two people asking me for portraits. I wonder if they'll be as much fun...

Nice set!
If I may offer a suggestion, be aware of cropping points. For example: in the second image, I would crop a bit higher at the bottom (not showing the legs) because the picture crops at the knees. As a general rule you should try not to crop at joints (knees, elbows, wrists etc.)
These images are nice but the last 3 are great!

Thanks,

Thank you!! And I'll go back and fix that, and check to be sure I haven't done that on others.

Tina, you did an excellent job. I really like #4 in the first set and #2 in the second. You captured real personality.

I picked out my keepers, ran back through Lightroom and did a few touch ups. I took the advice given here - thank you. There were some I wish I had posted here, but don't need to go overboard. Lol. My friend just looked at the pictures, and she says they are awesome. I am so relieved! I didn't think I would hear the word 'awesome,' but it sure felt good. This was a confidence booster. I think I needed that
