Default Christmas Card (Informal)Portraits

Thinking about making a comeback
Had to buy new batteries for my camera, old ones were dead
C&C appreciated. (Hey Sis!!)

Wonderful images, I particularly like the first. Maybe I'm too programmed to verticals for portraits of individuals, horizontals always "command me to look".

Beauty dish?

Not much to critique. Well done. Maybe darken the background just a wee bit. Nice bokeh balls, but they tend to compete. On second thought, lower the contrast in the background so the lights go down without pushing the rest of the background into a dark abyss. But that's really getting nit-picky. Client should be very happy with these.
