White felt background, blasted out by a full-power AB800.

I don't know how well this will do. I have never liked my lighting attempts for this type of photo. I am much more comfortable with black backgrounds. But hey, that's what DPC is for - learning.

She's gorgeous and I love her name... it's not one you hear much anymore and it's a shame... although maybe that's what makes it so special...

I too would like to see less space over her head...

Very cute but her smile looks forced.

I think I remember this lovely young lady from a family portrait you did. Your lighting has improved greatly - nice shot! (If my memory is incorrect then sorry but well done anyway!)

I think this is a lovely portrait, and I think she is a lovely candidate for this challenge.

Beautiful little girl, with an amazing smile.

This could use just a touch more light from the front. There's a very faint hint of a catch light in the eyes, but a stronger twinkle would really bring out the life in her eyes.

I think there might be a bit too much white above her head also.
