Tub Time! Baby portraits

This session with Emerson didn't go as easy as previous times. In fact, it actually took three attempts before the payoff. We used all the noisemakers, snack breaks, sibling cheerleaders - the works. Whatever it takes!

I thought it would be cool to show the transition of the image.

-The first shot is pretty much straight out of the camera with just a little sharpening applied.

-The next, color is saturated overall, background is blurred a bit, loose flower petals are removed, and corners are darkened to draw attention to our bathing baby.

-Finally, color is altered to give the image a vintage feel, and an old fashioned mat is applied for a real retro feel.
