I'm finding the eyes overcooked in these and you should clean up the wet areas around her nose, but having said that, she is adorable! I love that you have her bare toes showing. Giving her something to hold in her hands helps keep her occupied and keeps the hands away from the face, which babies often do at that age. I'm not a fan of how you rolled the backdrop under creating a visually distracting black line. This type of photo could easily have been done simply using a piece of the wall and baseboard and it would have made for a cleaner backdrop. Still, it's a great image, you got plenty of light in her eyes (although I think they are overdone in PP??) and her rosy cheeks are too cute!!!!

Thanks for the input! I did this shot at my sisters house and didn't have any access to anything to put over the carpet. Her walls where we shot were all covered in nicknack shelving and other very distracting things so I used the roll of grey seamless I brought with me. If I had rolled the seamless out and had them all sit on it over the carpet it would have been destroyed. I agree about the eyes being overdone a bit but they are so dark naturally that I liked the fact that there was some color and definition added by portrait professional......prob​ably could have dropped the intensity of the filter a bit. I tried to clean up her nose but my photoshop skills are still in their infancy and anything I tried made the pic look worse....she had just gotten over a crying fit and we had to shoot while the shooting was good! Still gaining experience with shooting kids but I love it! Thanks again for the advice....I have another baby shoot tomorrow in my studio so I can try again!
