It's difficult to objectively judge family photos, so I offer this to a hopefully more impartial audience:



Constructive C&C appreciated...

First of all Jonathan, congratulations! And hope mother and child are well. The pic seems to confirm it. My only criticism is that it seems very contrasty. Given the subject matter, I would have softened it a bit.

Nice portrait. Since you asked, I'd try to remove some of that shadow behind the head. That's just me - others may think it adds to the mood.

It's actually the back of the recliner she is sitting in, not a shadow.

Jonathan, That's a truly beautiful photograph. Don't change it. Yes, it may have a bit more contrast than the usual mother-child picture, but the extra contrast models the baby's face in a way I wouldn't change. Great shot.

I agree. It draws me right to the baby's face. Very nice!
