I have been a Professional Photographer in Salisbury MD for over a decade. Being a professional is much more than just taking a picture with a camera. Photoshop is a tool we use to get our clients the best result possible for this special event in their life.
I have a before and after section on my site but I like to show these upclose once in a while. One of the reasons that you want to hire a professional photographer is that we can fix things in photoshop that should normally not be there. A pimple or a hair out of place on an adult is one thing but newborns can be quite challenging. Baby acne is a common, a temporary skin condition that develops on a baby’s face with tiny red or white bumps or pimples. The first 2 weeks are usually fine but the acne can come on overnight sometimes and parents don’t want pictures like this. This condition can go away as fast as it showed up. This little boy had a lot of skin issues and the father said the day after his session is was almost all gone. Figures. 🙂
We want babies as close to 2 weeks as possible for many reasons but this is one of them. We went on with the session because he was still very sleepy and could still go into all those beautiful sleepy poses parents love. If we waited until his skin cleared up which could have been a few weeks we could have had a baby that was wide awake and fussy due to tummy troubles. Sometimes you trade one issue for another with little ones.
I knew I would rather have a happy baby that I could fix in photoshop vs a crying baby that was wide awake so we did the session. He was wonderful and slept the entire time. These photos took some time to edit but the parents loved them and bought a big beautiful canvas for their home.
Remembering how tiny and beautiful your baby was in the first weeks of their life is important. Please hire a professional that can give you gorgeous art for your home that you can enjoy every day. You will never get these days back. There is no do overs and you deserve the best!
