Default 9 days old

I got to shoot this little one who came a few weeks early and was 9 days old at the time. She had incredibly red hands and feet! I masked and pulled out as much as i could (until they started turning green). My question is, does it bother you? Other CC? thank you.

It doesn't really bother me, it's very typical of newborns. But sometimes I will make a photo black & white to address that problem. Plus, I love b/w portraits of newborns

This is a very sweet picture of a stretch - brings back memories of my own when they were little. However, I do think the big negative space doesn't add anything to the photo and would crop this one differently, if it were me.

I like it. The red feet don't bother me at all. I like the composition. It puts the baby along the rule of thirds, and the negative space gives room for the baby to stretch into. A closer crop would spoil the look. If anything, I'd pull out just a bit so the cloth around her bottom isn't so close to the edge of the frame. This might prove to be a little tight once printed, matted, and framed.

Keep up the good work!

A lovely shot of a precious little treasure.
I would probably crop off a bit of the empty space at camera left.

I don't think red skin on newborns hurts a bit.
I love the "pose". LOL....like TOUCHDOWN. Haha.
Nice use of negative space.
