Much of your work remains technically acceptable,  from at the very least, an enthusiasts perspective. Beware the common trend you have occuring with a strong sense of ‘the set up’ While compositionally quite strong, I see a great many images which do not offer any ‘natural’ feel. Consider capturing your subject in action. Gentle direction and suggestion should occur on the fly and it is your job (as a commissioned tog) to record that decisively. The experienced ‘tog would be combining this ‘direction’ of the subject with the ability to ‘see’ the moment. Props are a genuine tool for adding narrative although dont over do it. Lasty almost EVERY shot (excepting children) has your subject engaging the camera directly – not always needed. Mix it up! Lots more that could be said but i gotta go!
