I hope everyone is fully enjoying this beautiful 4th of July :)
I thought it would be nice to introduce a little 'Before & After' edit for all of the clients and followers that were wondering what exactly goes into retouching an entire session for your newborn. It's a lot of work!
Each image takes roughly 10-15 minutes: Between scratches, red blotches, diaper rash, red/blue hands and feet from lack of circulation, flaky skin, jaundice, any birth marks or bruises from labor, it can be quite a chore to make each image look as perfect as possible. Below, is the final image that the client would receive:

I just have a question, how did you clone out the wrinkles and make it smooth? I see the detail in the blanket she is laying on but can't see the details of the blanket in the background. I have used the clone also but it doesn't ever look this good. Just wondering if I was missing a step. Thanks Tina
