The pictures are lively and most are bright and cheerful. They look like they have been shot within the capabilities of the camera and are a fair old showcase of your work.
They are low-resolution images so we xan't pixel-peek to judge technical quality, but being shot in bright light and studio conditions, you don't need high ISO capability or shallow depth of field, so the camera and lens are more than adequate for the job. For picture like these the most important thing is coaxing the sibject to get the right expression and you seem to be able to maage that.

Sharpness isn't necessarily the main problem with kit lenses, especially when used on crop bodies and when used in studio conditions (ie. stopped down & in controlled light).

Where they suffer is when used on full-frame where edge sharpness can deteriorate badly, shooting at wide apertures where they can generally be both soft and have ugly bokeh and are prone to things like chromatic aberration and contrast issues when used in challenging lighting conditions.

Shoot in a studio with controlled lighting and stopped down you'd generally be hard pushed to tell a cheap lens from an expensive one.
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

I'm not sure what to think really, fairly standard, slightly dated looking pictures in controlled conditions?

Not seen a reason to cash in my d810, but if that approach is good enough for your customers, more power to you!

Agreed. But on the other hand this thread is one way of achieving free advertising for what appears to be a run-of-the-mill backstreet family snaps and portraits outfit.

It would be interesting to see what the OP can do creatively with his prosumer camera and kit lens combination, but as he only has one pic in his portfolio and has not updated it since December 2011 we might never know.

The kind of advertising which attracts no outcome. Might be time to wake up and see what photography has been up to in the last ten years.. And the internet for that matter.

So?

They are low resolution basic portraits, nothing that special and something that can be easily shot by that camera. More importantly its backuped by lighting and skill.

So just because this guy is getting away with this camera for this particular work, displayed as low resolution web images, so what?

The camera and lens still remains a flimsy camera that won't stand up for long to the rigours of professional use, plus that camera and lens has many limitations that will again limit many professional applications.

So I don't really see the point, there are many similar posts about people shooting similar work with camera phones, and they are a so what? too.
