    First shot, wearing black or deciding to shoot on a black backdrop might not have been the best idea lol.
    Perhaps using a light on the background might have given some separation between it and the subject.
    As it stands, her midriff and figure gets lost as well as the bottom left of the frame where her hand is out of focus.
    Also her feet peaking out from behind looks a little weird.


    Second shot I quite like but the rug cutting off part of the kids eye detracts from it imo and would have been nice if he (?) was looking at the camera.

    EDIT: Also the wrinkles in her dress are quite distracting.

    The dress does change throughout the shoot, you will see in future shots. After I was done I realized a second light would have really gone well but alas. And the black backdrop was a bad choice, I had 3 available, black grey and white. Was thinking afterwards the grey would have worked better but again, to little to late.

    Only got the backdrops on the day and didnt want to unpack all 3.

    Larger image looked fine to me but I'm viewing it from my phone so probably not the best way to do it.

    Its hard to keep an active (this one looks a little like 1 month or so) baby from pushing their head into the blanket. Try and get them when they are asleep, or have them on their back in they are awake (when they are this old). ALso use something more rigid under their head (a tightly rolled towel works well) this way they cant dig their face in. Other times you may have to do a composite shot as a parent or assistant holds their head still.

    Babby looks oof. I think the focus is just above the nose.

    For the first one i personally would crop in to just waist up, but that's me
