I put this collage together to show someone, and thought you might all find it interesting as well. After my son was born, I paid a lot of attention to how the light affected how his skin looked (as we are making a Realborn of him, and I know our artists will study the real baby pictures). I knew his skin shade would vary depending on the lighting, but I didn’t realize the extent it would vary. I found this very interesting. I did get a little lazy and used auto white balance on my camera when I didn’t set up my studio, but it was still pretty close to what I was seeing at the time. All of these images were taken in his first week of life.
Side note: Don’t you love how one of his ears is wrinkled more than the other? <3 Yes, his Realborn will be that way too, off course!
Tthis is very interesting,and helpful, thanks sweet baby.
I think the light is a huge part of why I sometimes see people saying that their Reborn baby looks different in real life than in the pictures. Most artists photograph with natural light, and a lot of the time, the recipient opens the package under regular house lighting. I purchased a Reborn myself that looked extremely different than the pictures, simply because I opened the box under fluorescent light. I knew the artist used daylight in her pictures, though, so I was not surprised one bit. As soon as I stepped by the window with my new Reborn baby, sure enough, she looked just like her pictures! I also think the light is responsible for the Reborn babies sometimes looking different at dolls shows than in pictures. I was a bit frustrated with this once when I was helping set up for a show (“What a Woman Wants” expo here in Utah), as I pay a lot of attention to light, and the light just wasn’t doing the babies justice! Maybe we need a tent around our booth with a huge daylight lamp in the middle, lol, though I am pretty sure that would not have followed their guidelines. Sincerely, Jessica
I do still think the dolls look lovely at dolls shows, though! I just feel so much responsibility for making them look as good as they can for our artists. I know their work is lovely, and I want everyone else to know it too! Sincerely, Jessica
Have a wonderful night as well! …and you will love going to a doll show, they are a lot of fun!
Lady’s sale some baby’s , save some money …another cute baby is coming .

Oh my, isn’t he just the sweetest little thing? He’s gorgeous. I can’t wait for his Realborn to be released
Such an adorable little fella…I think it very interesting about the lighting as well…I also noticed that a reborn looks different hues depending on the colour of clothing they are wearing too
Thank you. His name is Joseph.
Thanks for sharing little Josephs baby photos. This was very interesting. But the most interesting part was your little boys adorable face! He is really a sweetheart. “Bless his heart” as my Grandma used to say.
My favorite is still the pic of him smiling in his sleep with his little dimples showing💕
