There's a softness about this that appeals to me and I like the colour of the lighting (sorry don't know what that might be technically - but more yellow than white?}

Nice one kiddo, your on top form again! Love the warm lighting and diffusion, and you've caught her eyes incredibly well. Captivating. Think I'd try a tighter crop at the top, to take away some of that band of darkness and put Alex more in the centre

A lovely portrait which is so cute yet mesmersing with her eye contact (perhaps she will grow up to be a hypnotist!).

It reminds me of some recent wedding photos I took, one of the bridesmaids gave a similar look each time she looked at the camera which was so sweet on one hand but also spooky depending on your viewpoint.

Inspirational as ever. The delicacy of the hair coming across the forehead works really well.

It seems to me that the lighting balance is just a little off though with the right being darker than the left.
