Nothing like getting 4 wisdom teeth pulled, being sick, and having lots of time to edit pictures and blog about them! 🙂 This is a bit of what I’ve been up to in the past couple of weeks.
First – let me introduce my good friend, A,and her baby Ryder. When we first moved here, she was one of the first to befriend me and I’m so glad she did! She is not only completely gorgeous (I mean, look at her) but she is sincere, sweet, generous, hilarious, and smart. I love everything about this girl. I was thrilled to take some photos of her 4th baby – Ryder. He was an angel for the entire shoot, just like his mommy 🙂
You’ll recognize this shot from a previous post. I have started trying more funky/vintage type editing on some pics. I think I like it! I used my “Weathered” action on this one.
This shot was taken in front of a white backdrop. I added in the damask pattern later. I just found a print I liked online, dragged and dropped it on top of the photo in Photoshop, changed the blending mode of the damask layer to “Overlay”, then erased back the baby at the bottom using the layer mask. I love it!
And he is wearing a hat I knitted and a little wrap I also knitted. Not perfect, but I’m learning. Besides, who’s looking at what he’s wearing?? He’s too gorgeous to notice!
I’ve also been privileged to photograph some great families. This was just one of them. This family had 3 daughters (boy, can I relate) and they were little darlings! I was having way too much fun to actually be getting PAID for it! I love what I do 🙂
This little angel was SUCH A DOLL! Talk about a gerber baby!
I especially loved how the girls got along so well and just LOVED each other!
Finally, I had a photography challenge! Not in a bad way, just a NEW way. A co-worker of my husband’s wanted some portraits done and was interested in getting some with him and his sweet car! I have NEVER photographed vehicles before, so I was super nervous doing these. I’d love your input on how I did. I admit, I’m not a car enthusiast and I have no clue what to look for in a “good” car photo.
Again, I played around with a more vintagey type finish on this one:
… and on this one:
Anyway, that’s it for now. I’m slowly recovering from my wisdom teeth extraction and will be on to more photo shoots. I can’t believe I’m already booked into November! Things just don’t seem to slow down! I always love your comments and appreciate the wonderful boost they give me. Truly, they brighten my day. Thanks for taking the time to do it. Have a good one, and I’ll be back soon with more first days of school! Toodle-loo!
