    I see a lot of photos with a “creamy” look (for lack of a better description). It’s a style that would go nicely with your blog design. How’s it done? You see a lot of it in this photographer’s collection: http://www.flickr.com/photos/csfoto/ and here’s another example of the color/contrast I’m talking about: http://www.flickr.com/photos/yuliamustakimova/4729604121/

    Kaleb, first, the links you posted start with some pretty exceptional photography to begin with which really helps. Regardless of quality you can “tone” the skin pretty quickly with a gradient map adjustment layer. I’ll be writing a post specifically on gradient maps in the near future where I’ll detail how I like to do it. For now though put a gradient map on your image, set opacity to ~30% and blending mode to soft light and experiment from there.
