"Tender Kisses"
© David A. Ziser

I love this soft portrait of the mother with her 4 week old baby. The mother's lips against the baby's cheek elicits such a warm, gentle emotional response from the baby. This is one of several images I made during the session of the mother and child - this was my favorite. The lighting accents on the baby's face were fine tuned in Photoshop. Camera specs; Canon 20D fitted with 17-85mm IS lens at 85mm, F 5.6 @ 1/200 second, at ISO 800. Enjoy! --David


  1. I love this picture all the while knowing that 4 week old babies don't smile. So you must have been lucky to catch a "smile" which is probably the baby just passing gas.

    Or can you fine tune a smile in Photoshop?
