    Carmen’s comment
    “Baby Joseph was just stirring, but I think this shot, as he starts to stretch, really works. The shot was originally quite central, but Tracy’s cloned in some additional floor for a more pleasing composition. I had envisaged the that the blue wrap would add a splash of colour – but we tried a mono conversion, which I think looks classier. What do you think?”

    Tracy’s verdict
    “You’ve got to really love babies to do this type of photography well, and Carmen has done a wonderful job of capturing a beautiful newborn portrait that his parents will treasure!

    “The crossed legs and slightly outstretched arms give a relaxed look to the shot, while the wrap contrasts against the darker flooring. There’s plenty of breathing space – thanks to a bit of Photoshop cloning to the right and the subtle vignette frames the image nicely.”
