    Default Lazy eye?

    I had a consultation today with a lady wants me to photograph her 12 year old daughter. She has taken her to the regular portrait studios like Olan Mills and has never bought a single package from them since her daughter became old enough to choose the photos herself because her daughter hates how her lazy eye looks in the pictures.

    Any tips or suggestions for that? She obviously doesn't want it photoshop corrected because then it wouldnt be "her little girl", but she doesnt want it to be quite so obvious or stand out so much. I don't really know what to do since the main focus for portraits is the eyes!

    i have never encounter that - but maybe something more profile or from an angle so you can't notice the difference so bad?

    you'll have to report back how you handled it - good luck

    Do you have any from your photoshoot you can show me? Just to kind of get an idea in my head?

    There's usually a few angles that make the eyes line up properly. The trick is finding those and accentuating them over others.
