Absolutely perfect in every way including the sweetness factor. You are to be commended for these Alex.

Re: Child Photography - ( Images and Ideas )

Been working on these pictures for a while. Baby keeps me busy so I dont get much time to work on them. I am including a link to a picture as well.
It has a few other pictures I have done.

Those are nicely done. You might consider, though, adding a little more contrast to the black and white processing. There's nothing wrong with the way they are, but the adjustment might make them even better.

Re: Child Photography - ( Images and Ideas )

wardpicks, I find the background too brite and too busy. Distracts from the faces. If you made them darker and fuzzier (is that a word?) it would help.

palms1, next time try to light so that you get some separation between her head and the background. She just melts into the background.

Its nice to see that so far no one has posted the normal "looking down at the child from above" shot that really bugs me! We all know that children are smaller than adults, no need to emphasize it.
