There are many parts of my job that I thoroughly enjoy.. from building professional relationships with my customers, to planning & setting up for the shoot, to meeting your precious tiny newborn babies! However one of the things that I adore the most is using my creative side to retouch all of your images.
The post processing stage is done over a few days, picking out the favourites that complement each set up & angle the most, and then retouching these images on Photoshop.
Each image is different so will require different levels of retouching, however the most common tricks that I use to transform your images are:
Crop - To correct an angle or zoom in closer
Exposure - To brighten the image
Patch up - To patch up any distractions in the background
Smooth skin - Remove flaky skin from your baby
Creamy skin - smoothing out any patchy skin colours
Reduce jaundice - remove any orangey skin tones
Red patches - removing any redness from the skin
Lashes - enhancing any eye lashes or thin hairs, defining the eyes
Cheeks - making any pale cheeks rosy
All of these retouching actions are just small changes in themselves, but once they are all put together you can really see the difference!
Here are some more examples below
I hope that in the future I have the opportunity to meet you and your new babies, to transform your session into dreamy images that you can treasure forever!
