[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lynette and her daughter Kennedy were kind enough to pose for me in Santa Monica last weekend. They had incredible faces and coloring. I think photographs of kids and their parents are very interesting and photographs of kids and single parents may be even more intense.

Ciao Roger, beautiful double portrait with lovely models, fantastic eyes for the girl, very well done, ciao Silvio

Beautiful!! Beautiful eye contact from them both, both stunning looking, obvious beautiful connection between the two of them.
Great colors, details, textures.
Trudy

Hi Roger,
Beautiful portrait of the two ladies, I like the contrast between the different skin tones. It's quite interesting to see that at the same time they have very similar and very different features, too. And this is a great, high-quality shot to present it in details. Great job, Roger, keep it up! TFS.
Best regards,
Kristof

Hi Roger,
Usually I don't really like portraits but this one appealed me. They are beautiful but also very well photographed.
You have done a very nice job
TFS, Denis

LOVELY LOVELY portrait of mummy and daughter,(Queen&princess)
also Lyentte and Kennedy are amazing all the best for them,
and BRAVO Roger Minkow for this great artwork.

Hi Roger,

A really nice and full of tenderness picture. On a technical point, i would have chosen to aim a little higher to get the hair as well since the lower part brings not a lot more.
TFS.

Serge

Hello Roger!
They are both beautiful models!
Kennedy have so lovely face and eyes!
Great work, again!
Best regards!
Lili

Hi Roger,

you are absolutely right in your note...photographs of kids and their parents are truly very interesting and always full of emotions. This one has something special in it...

Mother and daughter...

***
You can see it in their eyes,
in tender touches and long bye-byes,
a love that only mothers and daughters know.

Excellent shot of these two beautiful ladies. :) BTW...you have mentioned single parents...is she a single mom?

Have a nice day,

Stasa

Hi Roger,

Excellent portrait of mother and daughter. I agree that the skin tones really work well in this shot and the eye contact couldn't be better. Really an amazing shot and I'm sure they loved it.

TFS,
Werner

Beautiful detail and perfect light - these are two very photogenic models and you have presented their portrait beautifully.

I agree with Serge's original critique - and I know you disagree with him for compositional reasons - but I think including more at the top of the frame would have been a good idea. Personal taste of course, there's no right or wrong.

Rew

Boa noite Roger
Their eyes are really beautiful...Great to look.
My regards
Teresat

Hi, Roger -
How you find such amazing subjects so consistently is amazing. Then you capture their characters in your portraits so perfectly. Lynette looks so strong and confident, and Kennedy looks beautiful and happy. The exposure is perfect and the the details of their faces are so clear but the lighting creates a nice soft feel. Great, great shot.

Hello Roger!

This is a true beauty. Difficult to say which I prefer best , the beauty of the photography or the models. Let say the complement each other beautifully. I hope you will give them a copy each.

So similar and so different at the same time. A lovely portrait. Tight crop is perfect for an intimate shot.
Thansk for sharing it.
Cheers!
Robert

Hi Roger,

Excellent portrait again!
Congratulations and TFS
Sergio

Hi Roger
Excellent image quality, great details and lighting
I like their natural looks, their penetrating eyes!
This shot has much more potential to increase sharpness
TFS. Alireza

Very beautiful portrait..I love their eyes...

warm regards
biljana

Hi Roger,
Great skin tones, nice faces, great eyes. Could have left a bit more of the motherīs hair on top, as they have beautifull different hair styles.
TFS
Robert

DAvid
