I thought I would share a little before and after of my newborn retouching. A lot of work goes into my newborn sessions. I arrive at least 1 hour before the session start time to warm up the studio and get things set up. The session lasts anywhere from 2 – 4 hours depending on the baby. After that I have about 30 minutes of clean up and laundry to do. Then I get to edit the photos. The amount of time this takes depends on the baby. Some babies have perfect porcelain skin (like my Layla & Evan did), some do not (like my Carissa). Either way is ok, babies are just different. 🙂 The babies that are more splotchy, have acne or scratches take a bit longer to edit. This is why you come to me, 🙂 I can take care of it so that your baby looks just as you see them. I have only had one baby that didn’t need at least a little retouching.
Here are some examples. My goal is not to make your baby look like a fake doll. I just want to polish them up. 🙂 Much love and attention to detail goes into your newborn session with me. Now, neither of these babies are really bad, just average newborn skin.
