Nice shots, try converting them to B&W, might be very interesting :)

You've got some good shots there Terry :) You might want to try *ilovephotography.com forums* for guidance/feedback/ideas on portrait work. That site is geared primarily towards children's portraiture...though several amazing fine art portrait photogs participate there as well.

Good luck!

Great site, lots of information...thanks!

i like your shots, it captures the essence of the children. I always find with children (like a lot of others have posted) getting down at their level or lower encompasses and transforms the child as a real and beautiful thing and not just an image/portrait of a child. I would like to see you do some closeups on faces (teeth,dimples,etc.) If you have any post 'em.
Great Work!!

shooting down on kids tends to force a very unnatural perspective, making the head seem unnaturally larger than the body. This may actually be popular as it is also the view most parents have of their children...

I guess I just don't get it.

Those are really great. My only hang-up was that you clipped his head in a few of the shots.

I cropped it like that on purpose.

And it looks awesome, very flattering.

Head clipping seems to be really trendy right now - fashion magazines are full of trepanned models.

I agree with Gordon, but sometimes breaking the rules works well. It depends on the subject. Your shot are really good. You've captured some great expressions and personalities. The only suggestion I have is with the two of them together. One head above the other tends to form a static line in the image. Try moving one of them so they are not perfectly lined up. Left or right matters to the composition of each particular image. It also gives the viewer a fuller fram to view.
