Actually, My daughter has a photo of her first-born not unlike the first piccie, and, no he was not premmy or underweight.

Ad Hoc Contest: I don't think the child has been Photoshopped onto a real coral reef, but for the life of me, I can't figure out what all those green thingies are.

Anyone care to guess what they are???? First prize is absolutely nothing at all--the ruling by the judges is final. Seen here at one of Donald's press conferences.

She has multiple vids on uTube to include production techniques (but I presume Photoshop is heavily involved but the vids I saw were not what you would call a tutorial re post-editing).

In at least one vid, she actually put a real leaf of lettuce on the baby's head as a kind of skull cap. The baby probably had no idea whatsoever what was going on, and didn't object to the lettuce.

She also makes her own props such as a swan (on a 'pedestal' with a kind of flat surface on its back for the baby to reside on prone).

As far as I could see, no babies were harmed in the making of the still photos. I give her the benefit of the doubt that the babies are never in jeopardy while on her props re their squirming about and falling off, I. e., I presume that such effects are Photoshopped--part of the picture is taken on the prop and completed by a drawing/overlay of another pix in Photoshop.

My choice for an embedded image in this reply is one that struck me as positive uplifting joyful child as opposed to the one in my topic post of what I presume was a low birth weight baby; however it may be that the image was simply photoshopped. Low birth weight babies/AKA as premature can unfortunately wind up have chronic multiple medical problems. Technology has evolved to keep extremely low weight babies alive, but sometimes with serious problems and a long long stay in a neonatal ICU which of course is extremely hard on the parent(s).

She is very clever in the way she presents her subject. I like her imagination.

I actually really dislike her photography. I know she is very rich/famous but there is something freaky about babies as animals/flowers etc. that upsets my equilibrium.
