    Default newborn shoot

    My friends just adopted this adorable little boy--he's 6 days old! This was my first time attempting some color pics, as I've always been afraid of pping newborn skin!! I'd love some feedback on color and anything else you might see.
    Thanks.

    so sweet!!!! how thrilling for your friend!

    these all seem on the cool side to me. Newborns tend to be pretty pink, I think you have the pinks down perfect, he just seems cool.

    What are your settings? That always helps for more specific feedback. That and numbering your photos.

    Ok, added numbers. You can see settings by clicking on each photo, so I didn't add them.
    Here is one warmed up a tad. Better?

    First off, CONGRATULATIONS to your friends! They must be beyond excited and happy right now.

    He is ADORABLE and these are great pics. I like the second edit better once it was warmed up a little. Great job!

    My only real comment would be #3 how you can see the umbilical stump. It may be just me, but they sort of turn my stomach. I was SO happy when the girls healed up to look like normal belly buttons!

    Lisa,

    I agree that they do look just a tad on the cool side. Your last edit seems spot on for me though.

    All that aside, this is a WONDERFUL set and I know your friends are going to go NUTS over them.

    I think my favorite is #2. What a sweet sweet moment. Focus and exposure look great in all of these, but I love how everything comes off so soft (yet still perfectly crisp in focus).

    Were it me, #2 would be canvas worthy.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Best,
    GiGi

    How could someone give that precious little face up? Oh my. CONGRATS to your friend though! I can only imagine how over the moon they are! That's AWESOME!

    I agree, they are a tad cool, but everything else looks spot on. I don't mind the umbilical cord, but that's just me. I liked your warmed up version! Great job! My fav is #2 as well! Sweet, sweet baby!

    I know it's easy to say but this truly really is such an ADORABLE baby, and I love your photos. He looks so perfect.
