Default Cute candid redhead! ;)

Hi everyone!
I made this card for a client for Mother's Day....this is the cover...I printed it on a textured cardstock. I was out for a walk with my camera to photograph a client's Magnolia's but, the frost the night before had killed all the blossoms.
Their just turned two year old daughter was outside so I grabbed a few very quick, very candid shots of her. It was getting pretty dark and she moves very fast so I didn't get a lot. I decided to throw this together with what I had and send the mom this for a surprise Mother's Day card (dad was there with the daughter mom was still at work.)

I know everyone's affinity for redheads and since Emily has been less than cooperative lately... I figured I'd post it here so you all would know I didn't fall off the face of the earth! lol

Hope you enjoy it! I had fun making it...I LOVE it...what do you think?

Thanks and blessing!
Lori

Nice!

I love the placement of the tossing shots showing the motion. I'm such a geek that I would change the order and put the shot with her at the highest point in the air at the top left, and so on. But that really is my geeky-self-to-the max.

The vertical shot at the bottom gives me a hard time though - maybe because of the Dad's shoulder taking prominence?

LOL! I hope you know I'm liking these collages a lot, Lori! I just want to practice trying to see what the real photographers around here see.

Thanks Tom...I think. LOL

I put them in the order shot but, if I was just putting them together I'd probably do it the way you suggested. I was in a rush to make it to the post office before 5 PM so I didn't tweek everything maybe like I should. Thanks for pointing out these things...you can practice critique on me anytime...just be gentle! (you were.)LOL

Thanks again for checking it out.

Blessings,
Lori

What mother wouldn't have enjoyed the heck out of this?

As for part two of your Q - I think you said you already delivered it to her - but FWIW the back of Dad's dead under the three "toss" shots with the little girl on top in bottom left looks out of place.

I think its wonderful but do agree about the dad's shoulder bottom right. Tossing in the air the way it is works for me.
