A lot of people are under the impression that photographers have great cameras and can get remarkable images. The post production is just as important to making those shots even more beautiful. It takes a lot of time, skill and knowledge to retouch expertly. Here I have an example of April in their recent family portrait. She is a beautiful woman with lovely makeup on. However, good cameras see more under the surface and record more information. I have attached the original image and then an example of one retouched (possibly more extreme than necessary). I can go in between with retouching as well. Communicate with your photographer so that he or she knows how much retouching to do along with any problem areas that need to be hidden.
