    first of all, the pic is overexposed. and the pose makes the baby look very awkward.

    I actually like the overexposed'ness in infant shots ... it's not THAT bad, I've seen worse :)

    The pose is a tad bit awkward though.

    You must not do much baby photography?? My taste is always pretty bright and slightly overexposed...to each their own :) Thanks for your opinion though!

    It's a good pose, if you get it just right it looks like they're grinning. I agree it's a bit bright, not overexposed and if that's what works, that's just fine. I do think the skin tones are a little bit on the cool side, except for on the face really.

    i know overexposing a tad is the "thing" to do for baby pics, but this is just blinding.

    I've been taking some pictures of babies, and know it can be a challenge to try to pose them in such ways. Everyone has their own style, and if this is what you like... then I say go for it. We all have to carve our own niche and style out... keep at it.

    Personally, I love this. It made me smile from ear to ear when I opened this up and saw that pose and expression. Too cute! The brightness doesn't bother me in the least, nor do I personally feel it detracts from the shot. This one will be treasured by the parents forever!

    Love it!! You've almost got that pose down! Love the pursed lips and I don't think it's overexposed at all, it's got that lovely creamy soft lighting that works so great for newborns! Good job!!

    I think it looks great. I like the pose, Its not your typical grinning baby,. I like the different faces they make. I have been dying to do newborn pics but no ones been popping out kids around here lately that I know of.. lol. Im a sucker for subtle vignettes I think it would great with this particular shot.

    I like it, cute, different and bright as you say your style is, and as Pea-Pod suggested, a subtle vignette would work well.
