Julie -- Welcome!
Aly's album now has two pages: Head Shots is separated for convenience, but those images are also included in the other page, Imagination Needed. We discussed your interest in seeing a lot of images, so here they are, but here's the trick: you must not base your selections on cropping etc. ONLY think about Aly and whether her expression makes you smile. You'll be amazed at how different a feel a photo has with different crops or angles. Much of that can be changed! So what I'd like you to do is zoom in and make a Favorite Expressions folder. Don't think too hard. From there I'll play and give you a quickly edited set to choose from.
In the photo cart, click on a photo to enlarge it. You can compare two side-by-side. Add photos to a Favorites folder to review them in a smaller set.
If you have specific cropping thoughts on specific photos, great! Drop me an email. For example, "Can we try 7392, 7647, .... as close-ups? And stay zoomed out for 1223 and...." Otherwise I'll use my judgment and give you a mix.
Remember, please use your imagination. If you see one photo in a set that looks more alive, but it's right in the middle of two others with basically the same pose, it's because I played with the one. For example, look at 7393 in the salmon-colored shirt and the scarf. It's all about the crop and angle!
The lighting and contrast is different in different photos. I will adjust them a little more. I will erase distracting electricity lines and joggers. I will adjust color a little. Aly's chin is often down; I'll add light to her eyes. With the drums, your arm is in a few. (All of you is in one parasol photo - but easily deletable! <:) Doesn't matter! In the drum set, especially, pick the expression you like best in a set and I can easily merge it with a different photo. Feel free to ask for a specific edit. If it is simple, I will do it for no charge. If it will take me over 15 minutes, I will give you an estimate first.
Don't order till we go through this first round. Trust me -- you'll have a much better idea what you want after my first quick edits.
I'll talk to you soon.
