When I am on location at the client's home it is common for me to look through the closet to select the outfits for the photo session. I found a red and white polka dot dress and a pair of mouse ears. We even had her hair professional styled at Infinity Salon. She is 10 months old. Watch carefully, there are 3 photos in the slideshow.

  • Photo 1: The original photos are slightly underexposed to capture the details. This way I can decide during the digital retouching stage how much detail I want to show in certain areas.
  • Photo 2: The exposure is corrected and the colors are shifted.
  • Photo 3: If you look closely
    • Mommy's arm is retouched out.
    • The missing background on the left is reconstructed.
    • Some of the flying hair is retouched out and/or reduced.
    • Slight bags under the eyes are lightened and blended to give a more natural and smooth look.
All these little details make a big difference in the resulting photo. Remember that my photos can be printed to 30x40, so you will see a bigger difference when the photos are viewed at a bigger size.
