And a couple more for fun.... {St Louis COunty Family Photographer}

My Own (again)

Sooooo....with winter in full force, I have far fewer sessions that I wish for and far fewer than I am used to so ya know what that means???? Full on torture by way of Mama's lens for my own 4 little loveys! Here are a few from the last couple of weeks!

Sweet Baby A {St Charles Mo Newborn Photographer}

Lucky me!!! I got to photograph this sweet little angel at only 6 days old! She is destined to be smothered in lots of love and kisses with 2 big sisters that adore the heck out of her. Mama and Daddy are going to have your HANDS FULL with these gorgeous girls. Congrats to you.

Awesome! Fix it Friday at I Heart Faces is BACK!

I adore fix it friday! If you are not familiar with it- get over to I Heart Faces and check it out and try your own hand at “fixing” the photo at hand. I did not take this photo- I just edited it. I tried to break out of my au naturale (aka…boring at times) editing shell and get a little artsy! What do you  think? My fix was done in CS5. I fixed the color and contrast using color balance and contrast layers, cropped the sweet girl in a bit closer. Brightened a very small smidge, ran Florabella “Mademoiselle” and adjusted the overall opacity to 33% and adjusted each individual layer to suit my taste. Then I overlayed Florabellas Jubilee texture and adjusted the opacity to about 60% and erased it from her skin using a layer mask. And VOILA! My “artsy” not so “boring” fix! 2011 is going to be the year I break out of my editing shell and get my artsy on!


Here is the “BEFORE” (it was already a nice photo…dontcha’ think?)



And this is the “AFTER” my “fix”

Fix it Friday!

A very sweet FIF photo!!! I did not take this picture- I just edited it for Fix it Friday at I Heart Faces. You should go over there and check out all of the awesome edits. They are all so different – it is so neat to see all of the different outcomes from the same exact photo! Here is mine- what do you think?

I used PS CS5 for my edit. I cropped in to her sweet face, adjusted bright/contrast, sharpened it up a little, and then used Florabella’s B&W vanilla and added my own “tweaks” to convert it. Do you like it? I do! What a pretty little girlie.


Here is the photo before I edited it;


And her it is after I edited it!
