I took this picture at my parents house. My daughter, Sydney, had just turned 4 weeks old. It was one of those moments where you tell yourself, "If I don't take a picture of this, I'm going to regret it forever." I added some Gaussian blur to make make the picture even softer. I think a baby's skin exudes "touch." I really like how the picture turned out. It has a "silky" feel to it.

I doubt a professional could do a better job. The lighting sure is everything; you must have shot with existing light.

I just had to tell you this is a beautiful photo. The tones, lighting, everything just comes together and it's just a stunning image. It should've scored higher in my opinion.

A beautiful baby! The lighting is very nice here. I think a tighter crop would make this better. Either a vertical crop or, at least, cutting off the plant on the right side.

Something that adorable how could you not want to reach out and hold her? I know there is no sense of touch in this photo but there defiantly is the emotional touch. Great job.

Wonderful muted light in this. I think a bit of cropping from the right side might have made it even better. The colors and the softness of the child's dress and the child herself really make this charming.

very nice portrait, but the planter is distracting.

Beautiful light and colours. Soft as silk, baby skin, dress, chair, carpet, pillow......
It's like the hand just want to reach out and feel it.

oh my - quite precious! I think I'd like to be closer in to your young model. The wall/pot don't really add to the composition for me.

i'm sorry but i just don't feel it

Beautiful color and lighting. I would have liked closer cropping so the flower pot was not included in the photo.
