hands can be difficult to photograph, try to avoid the missing fingers.

These are great. I don't believe you have overdone them in any way. She should be very happy

No need to deal with Schliemannski any more. When my Peruvian mother-in-law calls me by my name, David, it sounds like Dahveed to me.

Please critique my first home studio portraits taken this Christmas with an actual human being and not a mannequin head. These high-key portraits of my niece were shot with a Canon 80D, EF50mm f/1.4 USM lens, and 2 Flashpoint speedlites: one key and one fill triggered by a Flashpoint R2 Pro. The speedlites were attached to a Godox 32x32 inch softbox diffuser and a 30-inch silver umbrella. I also used a 32-inch round reflector, to fill the shadow under her neck, in the shot where you can see 3 catchlights in her eyes. A JTL 160 strobe blasted the white seamless paper background. PortraitPro Studio 18 helped smooth her skin tones as I'm not yet up to speed on related Photoshop techniques.

Be as brutally honest as you care to be. As a retiree, I'd love to channel this hobby into a small business.

Really nice job, do I have to find a fault, triple highlight in the eyes bothers me a bit, but so close to perfect

Well done - Nice images of a very pretty girl. You might try a little extra sharpening on her eyes and see how you like it.
