    Very cute! As far as high key images go though, you're losing details around the ears and I find it a touch too bright.

    chasm, that's why I posted it. I thought I might have made it a little too bright. Maybe I'll tone it down a little and repost tomorrow.

    Here's the SOOC version (resized small and logo added because I posted this as a proof for the parents). Maybe I should have left it alone?
    I'm really struggling with the PP, but my pictures having been looking pretty good sooc for a few months now so it makes things a little easier at least. I'm hoping one of these days soon everything I've been reading and practicing is going to click.

    Mosher, I know the WM is pretty in your face, so here's one without the watermark just for you. :p

    lol..you could also try loweing the opacity on the WM.. it's sorta in a spot where even the noobest noob could make it go away so it's not reallllllllly accomplishing much....but that's another post altogether i guess lol.

    I know it's not accomplishing much, in fact, in order to post the non-watermarked version I painted over the WM with white in photoshop lol. Almost any idiot could do that!
    I need some WM schooling, maybe I'll make another post.

    I set up in the client's kitchen. The background is seamless paper. You can't see it in the shots that I've posted, but I'm using their kitchen table with fabric on top of it for the baby to sit/stand on. (I'll find a picture that shows the table and post it.) I'm using two lights with softboxes on the camera side and natural light from a big patio door is falling on the left (his right) side of the frame.
