Howdy

My comments or suggestions below are not a criticism of you, your model, your talent or skill. I offer them in a friendly tone of voice and with the sole intent to help you with a second POV and set of eyes. If you read sincere questions and simple suggestions as "criticism" of you, then you will miss how I am trying to help you.

Of course this may be your own "style" or your own "vision" and I suppose we can assume that the images look just like they do because that is exactly how you like them. That is OK too. It just shows that there are differences of "opinion" on what looks good. IF these are exactly what you want and like, then by all means continue making your images look like that and have fun doing it. I can only speak for myself and what I do or do not find appealing in the posted photos. As I always say: "Follow your own muse."
_______________________

You have a nice looking family.

In general, I think the images are pleasant looking, with nice color on the scenery (leaves/trees etc.).

However, as I looked at each image, I kept getting the impression that the skin tones were manipulated or changed (in PP) as several shots appear oddly warm in parts of the faces or with what appears to be lightened faces. The work appears to me to be inconsistent.

Also, while the group shots look nice for groups, image 1 (girl) has an odd pose that has her leaning with one arm much lower (and lower shoulder) than the other. I don't think that is a good pose/moment.

I hope these comments help you.

Thanks Steady, I appreciate your expert opinion of course, because I am no expert, just a hobbyist. But, with all due respect, I think u are over analyzing the images. These are just family pictures, not meant to be anything professional. I used off camera flash on most of them, of course the ones i didn't use fill on, I did some post processing on. Thanks for the critique!
