    I just started editing photos from my second newborn photoshoot. Baby E is a week old today and this is their first baby. Mom wanted BW photos but I threw in a few shades of color as well.

    C&C welcome :)

    For me, all the ink on dad really competes for attention. I would've had him wear long sleeves or not used him at all in this type of close up pics. I think it would be okay for cliche type shots of him holding baby on his chest w/o a shirt on, but not here.

    I think in the color shots the tattoos really draw my attention but in the b&w it's not really an issue.

    Love the shot of the foot in the hand. That is really unique.

    I agree about the ink. It is a bit distracting. Other than that, I think they are great pics. :)

    I understand what you all are saying about the ink on dad's arm but that is what he wanted to show off. I guess I should have mentioned that in my first post.

    Yea i disagree with the ink being distracting. It's who he is nd it's unique, and I think it adds to the photos. You did a great job! :)

    thanks Jols and Jamie....I can understand where everyone else is coming from about the tats being distracting but like Jols said its what the dad looks like so why cover them. He is very poud of his tats and wanted to show them off in the photos so i tried.

    Baby E was so perfectly content laying there all alone so when we tried to take the shots on dad's arm he would fuss. These were taken as he was peeing on dad and right after LOL

    I am in love with number 6, and I think you did an amazing job blending together Dad's art on his arm with his new little one.
