"All the babies in your photos are so gorgeously perfect, not a blemish in sight, and when I look at my own little cherub I see little milk pimples everywhere, flaky skin and little scratches from her fingernails, how on earth can I go and get photos done when her skin is not so perfect?
This is a question that comes up a lot and there's nothing to worry about, all babies look the same when they come into the studio, their skin is getting used to being in oxygen and drinking milk, giving them little pimples, flaky skin and red blotches, and probably not the photo that will become a canvas on the wall or the photos that will get pulled out regularly over the years, but with a little editing I can clear up and brighten babies skin.
I would really like to share a short but beautiful video that shows exactly what goes into the preparation, photographing and editing from an award winning photographer in Brisbane.
My recent newborn session was with beautiful Grace, 2 weeks old and just starting to get a little more alert, but we got some very cute photos. She had a few little milk pimples, she looked stunning in her finished photos.
I say it all the time, but I love doing this!
