    My wife and I had our second child on Monday morning, 5/3/2010. Alissa Renee, 7lbs 9oz.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Rainy Saturday today so I decided to gather some "props" from around the house and do a small photo shoot with the new pup. Here is one, not sure if I like the PP on it or not (just getting to learn CS5 and loving it).

    Any and all CC is welcomed. I know she needs to be centered in the basket better, and her face is kind of covered. Also, her left rear leg was "left out" of the layer mask so it got B&W on accident (if this were a final shot I would fix)

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here's one from the hospital... shown as shot.

    Luckily she looks like her momma.

    Love the first one, the white fur (blanket) looks a little blown out around the head area. But aside for that, it looks wonderful!!! Congrats on the baby girl

    One more from the shoot... didn't like this one at first- but it is kind of growing on me (another reason I never delete a photo)

    I'd crop the first one, way too much empty space, and it looks a little blue.

    Pink, I love your styling on shots. You're one of my favorite posters here.

    Is there a reason for the large amount of black above the baby? Framing reasons or artistic preference?

    Congrats! She is precious.

    Her skin tone looks off in #1, maybe a little gray. And for a newborn shot, it looks a little stark. I think you need softer lighting, like in the other shots.

    The photos with the pink blanket...hmm. Too much pink! There are pink color casts all over her body. Stick with whites and neutral tans, browns, and creams. It creates a softer look, too, which is how you'd like a newborn photo to look ideally.
