She is indeed beautiful! I wonder why you have uploaded this in the Critique Gallery, are you looking for comments on the individual images or the arrangement?

For the former, it would be more help if we could see those images separately, with their Exif. The bottom left frame looks good to me except that the right eye is clipped.It needs a bit more space at the top of the frame. Bottom right - the skin tones are rather greyish.

So far as the arrangement is concerned, it looks top-heavy. Perhaps instead you could look at a triptych, or four outer frames with a fifth fitted into the centre? It could be easier to arrange a balanced montage if some of the shots had her facing right rather than left.

Thank you! I am looking for critique, because it is my first newborn shooting, I did not shoot newborn before and I am looking for some advice, what I should do better or different.

If you want critique on the individual images, please upload them one at a time. Commenting on five different shots is a lot of work!

Overall, the gentle light works well, and the restricted palette of colours is a good idea, and they are harmonious with the subject.

I'm sure parents and relatives will love the variety of images on one print: I am much less sure that the broad white dividing bars are a good idea. I'd also consider having the images all different sizes, rather than one large image above four that are all the same size.

The problem is that without the Exif on individual pictures it's difficult to advise. Could I suggest that you upload one individual picture as a Modification (click on the blue Modifications button and then on Upload). Then add the techie information for the shot here as a Comment - these are the entries that the site would normally pick up:
Shutter speed
Focal length
Exposure mode
Metering mode
White balance setting
Flash used or not

More info is needed. such a montage of images can look good in a frame but are difficult to access at this size. They look a tuch under exposed to me, but that is difficult to determine and softer images, both in lighting and texture do suite very new babies.

More info is needed, though.

New born photography is very difficult. They all look the same! Each shot is quite well done and reasonably different. Difficult to advise further, just be sure the parents, (clients) are happy.

They all look the same, Michaela, though with different angles and crops.
I personally favour the one in the bottom left.

I would like to have seen the furry blanket covering the whole of the background, though in a couple of the close shots nobody would know how big it was.

I like the soft light you have used and would say that you have done well here, but would agree it would be best if the images were uploaded individually.
