Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes while you excitedly wait for your images? Well, lots… The amount of editing required for an image depends on several variables including the photographer’s skills in getting the right exposure, etc. However, it goes beyond that with newborn images. We would like to think that babies are born with perfect creamy skin, which would make our job a lot easier. However in reality, they aren’t. Most babies are born with red blotchy skin, baby acne, flakes, jaundice, etc. These are things most parents don’t necessarily want on their newborn images that they plan to keep for generations. How much to edit is subjective and left in the hands/eyes of the photographer’s artistic vision. At a minimum, we try to remove things that shouldn’t be there without making your baby look like a China Doll. The newborn in the following image was gorgeous, so I didn’t have to do much. But you can still see how professional editing makes a difference in the final image. So now you know that every single image you receive from Ally Bryce Photography is personally edited and created with love.
