So this was my second time shooting a newborn. She was 15 days old and did pretty well. Looking for some CC. Thanks!

Not a fan of the processing with newborns. I know the intent, but she just looks jaundiced. However, that is simply a matter of personal taste. You did a fantastic, fantastic job with these, creatively and technically. The adorable posing of the hands in that first shot, the glasses and the books, the unique cradle and the hanging leg, all dynamite. and this was only your second newborn shoot? Winning.

Gorgeous. What sort of filter are you adding to these?

Thank you all.

@Sue: I understand what you are saying about the processing. The Lightroom cocktail I whipped up was very very warm. This was due to flakey dry skin and red uneven skin tones that I have found I am not very good at "fixing". The processing hid a lot of it and I just went with it for the set. I appreciate the comments.

@cue: these were shot with a 5d2 580ex camera right and left. Seamless white bg and a lot of experimentation in Lightroom. I actually used the same processing for the first newborn shoot I did. I enjoy it and my clients seem to as well. What ever works right?

Wonderful shots. Newborn skin is tough. My daughters was the same way, dry and flakey

TY. Really dig that city scape on your slider.

Thanks I think. You mean the slide show on my site?

I usually find that you can fix flakey dry skin and red uneven skin tone in newborns just by carefully using the Heal Spot Removal, Skin Softening Brush, and bringing the Saturation down but the Vibrance up

That is what I did to this pic of my daughter's cradle cap by her eyebrows
