I wasn't happy with the short distance to the background either. We did that so I could keep her as much in the backdrop as possible.

Great tips on the posing, I'll be sure to pass them on. I'm also going to print out Rolando's article on Smile (http://www.garageglamour.com/tips/smile.php
). As for the legs and arm, I did think about what to do the get her hand visible, I can't believe I didn't think about reversing the legs.
Oh, in your pic, would having that lantern lit been an option? or would it have been distracting and superfluous?
Thanks for your review and comments,
