    Would love CC!!!

    I know it's kinda cliche, but I've never done it before so I asked a girl at my moms group at a playdate at my house today if I could try it. Lesson: This would work better for the following things to happen:
    baby is like FRESH out of the womb and not 7 weeks old.
    towels are high quality, and all match.

    Other than those lessons learned, these are what I got. CC much much much appreciated!

    I think if you put 3-5 more watermarks on each one...

    I kid.

    I don't think the desaturated/bws work for this. The colors are good in the color shot and I really like #3. #1 is definitely gas.

    Thanks guys! I love the first in color, but prefer the 2nd and 3rd in b&w.

    (sorry for the watermarks btw.. just necessity until I get my own design)

    I do think the watermarking is somewhat overkill and makes it a little distracting to assess.

    Nice shots, particularly in B&W. I think the expression in the middle two is perhaps the less appealing - a little more vacant, with the other two (top and bottom) showing more character.

    who cares if its cliché, if it helps build a suitable portfolio then it doesnt matter
    2 has the elvis lip lift LOL

    I think lighting is great on these, maybe a little bit to much reflection in the top eye, but apart from that GREAT

    LOL! I found the Elvis lip awesome - but now I also see the rodney dangerfield reference too! Too funny. The mom said "He looks like a little old man with all that hair" haha. She chose the 3rd one as her favorite... Its so funny how varied my personal preferences are from the people I shoot.

    Kelly, I hate to say it but these are not up to your usually great standards. To my jaundiced eye the baby looks uncomfortable I tend to agree that the baby is too old for this particular pose. I do think the be are better. Try moving the baby a little more onto the towel so the head does not hang over. I have tried to come up with something positive to say, but dang it these just don't quite make the grade. Maybe it because I was in the hospital for a week and an still out of sorts.
    I am looking forward to seeing your nest posting.

    I like them, I agree the head moved in would be good and maybe the baby's shirt off would have looked a little better. just a thought. But i think they are cute. :)
