Almost a spur of the moment shoot. Was overcast and the model called and said "Let's shoot".

We met for the shoot. Wouldn't you know, five minutes into the shoot, the clouds disperse and harsh sunlight.

We did get in some decent takes.

The first two images are me playing with the EF 50mm f/1.8 at around f/3.5

The others with the Canon EF 24-105 f/4L. Body is the 60D

Unfortunately, not much I could do about the extra busy background.

Your photos look very professional. The first and last are appealing. The photos showing her legs are not flattering to her in my opinion..

All good looking pictures. I like the first and last one best but that is just my personal taste in portraits.
Comments always welcome.

A very pretty model.

The contrast of the last PIX seems best on my screen, but PIX #3 is good too. The first PIX is pushing brightness (eg, almost detail washout in parts), but then again, it may depend upon monitor (ie, viewing screen) capability.

First shot is WOW!, and I'm such a sucker for a big smile and dimples anyway. Only thing I might do would be to touch up a bit under her eyes. the lower lids look a bit puffy, and with the brightness of her cheeks, it looks a little off. Second shot definitely looks like she has bags under her eyes, and needs touchup.
I agree about the b/g in the third shot. wider aperture might have helped.
Last shot is well posed and well photographed - my favorite of the group.
