I also agree you are on the right track. The first image was the strongest, but maybe a bit overexposed. I love the framing on the two with the tree branch, but the focus is off on the girls’ faces. Are you using autofocus and selecting an autofocus point? That may help if not. The images on the bridge had way too direct sunlight. In some situations like that, try having an assistant block the sun with a large blanket. It doesn’t always work but I did that for some outdoor newborn shots and it worked like a charm. I liked the first black and white portrait because of the artistic lighting pattern. The last one however had an odd expression. You’re better though than those fauxtogs who are charging! And yeah, minimize the editing. Or if you do like that, do a more “clean” edit, and make the vintage edit an additional option, and show both.
