Default Too cute...

Hailey wanted me to take a couple pics of her this evening in her new clothes, so I tossed up a makeshift background and captured a few snapshots... I quickly realized shooting a 2yo isn't all it's cut out to be, lol. This is my favorite shot of the series.

(Shot w/K100D & kit lens, PP in CS4)

...and a couple edits using Imagenomic Portraiture v2

As always, exif is attached and C&C welcomed!

You did a great job, and your title, "too cute" is right on.
I like the first one the best.

Just my taste, but I prefer natural looking, especially for kids. I like the first one - she's SO cute! I don't do people pictures much and portraits not at all so I don't know what I'm talking about here. But I like the original framing because it looks more casual and not as much like a formal portrait. I think it matches her expression better, but perhaps you were trying for a more true portrait look? Take this as my own personal, uneducated opinion.

you need to find a way to get her to ask you to take photos more often
she looks like a great model and is enjoying this shoot

Too cute is right. She's growing up to be quite the little looker.

I, too, like the 1st one best. More natural and relaxed.
