NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA: Heather Rae El Moussa has been sharing some of the simple joys of being a new parent on her social media platform for quite some time. Recently, the new mom shared photos on Instagram of her son's first solo newborn photoshoot, but fans were divided because the photos looked touched up. 

Heather is the newest mom to face criticism on the Internet for doing something that is quite typical of parents. It's not the first time the real estate magnate has come under fire. In January, the 'Selling Sunset' actress posted two stunning newborn photos taken by Candice Swanson, a newborn photographer. Fans were irritated because they could not see the baby's face, and complained that the photos focused too much on Heather instead of her baby with Tarek El Moussa.

Heather Rae El Moussa shares photos from son's first solo photoshoot

Heather seems to have given in to concerned admirers who were upset that they couldn't clearly see baby Tristan Jay El Moussa's face. Heather posted four pictures from his first official solo photo op on March 23.

In the first photo, baby Tristan is securely wrapped in a swaddle and lying in a heart-shaped crib. In the following images, he snuggles up to his stuffed animal and sleeps in a miniature bed.

Heather captioned the post saying, "A real life angel 👼🏻 I seriously can’t handle his cuteness 🤍"

'Normal photos are welcome,' say fans

Unfortunately, some of Heather's followers are still unhappy with her photos. One fan commented on the post saying, "I think these photos are a little creepy." Another person criticized her, asking, "Why do they use a filter for a newborns face?" One follower added, "Morbid looking photos .... sorry!" Reminiscing about their previous complaints, one fan quipped, "The first pic without heather omg so rare."

One follower left a comment saying, "Omg that's just WEIRD." One fan questioned the need to edit photos of a newborn, writing, "He is precious. I just don’t get why he has to be airbrushed into perfection. He already is." Fans are now hoping to see something unedited, writing, "Normal" photos are welcome though. 👏" Another person added, "OMG. Something doesn't look right 😬"
