beautiful both! The dress is awesome. Can I ask what lens you use? Her face is just a smidge out of focus in pic 2 which was my major issue til I switched to the 50mm. Also, have you ever tried www.coffeeteaphotography.blogspot.com
for her actions? Her perfect portrait
allows you to "soften" the skin giving a flawless look and also has a nice brightening effect. Overall, I'd say you are highly talented and your model is a doll!!! A lot to be proud of!!
