I have a similar shot in my portfolio. I like your setup much better. My shot was very spontaneous and it shows. Good looking kids!

This was brilliantly posed and excellent thought put into it. As soon as I saw it, I understood what it was all about. Your children are going to cause you some problems when they grow up, all heartbreakers!!!

That is gunna be one spoiled little girl! I like this very much. I hope it does well, DPC is not often kind to child photographs. It's so strange... I don't know where to look which is usually a bad thing but works so well for this photo. You should be very proud.
