Congrats Melissa Avey! Your image is fabulous so we had to feature you as the Chic of the Week.
With dark tones along with the beautiful skin tones, there was no way I could let it slip by without sharing it in a CHIC of the Week post.

I’m a photographer from Cambridge, Ontario. I want to be a “portrait artist.” It sounds fancier. I have a husband and 3 beautiful children who I love dearly and stalk constantly with my camera. I adore capturing people in natural moments and most of my work is shot that way. Sometimes my clients get confused when I tell them to just go play.
Early evening, natural light in a park. We were in a great spot where he actually went in the woods just a touch and started playing. He turned around and began walking towards us on a log then just stopped and looked up at me and I got this expression.
I was at 1.8 , 1/320, ISO – 200. Post processing was done in Photoshop CS6. The best expressions are the natural ones!
What critique from Chic Critique Forum did you find helpful after sharing this image?
Sarah O’Connor mentioned that it’s great as long as the whole session is edited in the same style. I just wanted to say that I used to do a lot of sessions where I would pick 1 or 2 images and do an artistic edit on them and it just wasn’t consistent. I think it’s much better when the session flows together. I feel like if the look of each image is different as you go through the session then you can lose the connection. So a great tip from her.
