How do you get their skin tone to be so even and smooth and creamy and Gorgeous!? lol Is some of that a lens thing, or a editing thing I know mostly a PHOTOGRAPHER thing :) but experience tends to take longer and I really want to improve.

acorns77- In photoshop, I sharpen and then reduce noise and that seems to smooth out their skin and the blotchiness without making the baby look over smooth, and if they have acne or red spots, I just use the spot healing brush. I can show you a before shot. The SOOC pic before I edited it if you want to see.

What did you do with the dog?! LOL he was cute! Did you clone or copy and paste to remove him?

I cloned the dog out. He just didn't look right in this picture, but I do have another cute one with the dog in it, I kept him in that one. :)

Your editing is outstanding!!! That's what's holding my work back for sure. Are you self taught?

I LOVE that ruffley white blanket. Where did you get that?
