Thank you for all the votes and comments!

We used honey to stick the sweets to Olivia's face :)

I got a lot of feed back on how smooth the face is and a few noted maybe over done. Regularly I wouldn't use that much but the image I had in my head just screamed extra smooth?!?. I took a chance :)

I have posted another outtake and video on this photoshoot on my blog - check it out here.

Once again THANK YOU FOR ALL THE VOTES AND COMMENTS!

It's those eyes. I think you could do almost anything to her portrait... and those eyes... Amazing.

Very nice shot, though she seems a bit over-airbrushed to me.

Although this candy lips thing is overdone here, I haven't seen it done on a child. Certainly not on such a beautiful child as this... AND it's well shot.

Lovely!

I'd have liked some of the texture to have been left in her skin, especially the lips since they're a focal point, but the light is lovely.

Nice take on an idea seen on dpc before; I like the young face. Nicely done. 10

OK...how did you get those to stick to the lips?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/26/2012 01:23:18 AM
I'm predicting that this ribbons. Good job.

I get the sprinkles as lipstick, but this is a case where over-smoothing has created a rather unnatural and disturbing look around the mouth.

I'm not too big a fan of this extreme skin processing - otherwise a nice shot.

Could be the winner.

this is WAY too pp'ed. it looks too fake...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
02/24/2012 01:15:14 AM
Very nicely done, I think she has been softened/smoothed just a TOUCH too much, but it probably just gets away with it. I would've like a slight smile too
