Fix It Friday at I Heart Faces! {St Louis Family Photographer}

Hey people! It is another fun Fix it Friday at I Heart Faces! Don't know what that means? Head on over to I Heart Faces and check it out! Basically- they give us a photo that needs a little TLC...and we (me, you, anyone who wants to join in!) take a shot at editing it! It's that easy :).

Here is my fix. #1 is the photo they gave me. And #2 is my edit. I used CS5 to edit.
Hey! If you are reading this...please leave a comment and follow me! This is a new blog and I need some friends :). I will certainly follow you back! Thanks!

Fun news for Kristi Hollowell Photography! {St Louis Family Photographer}

I got my backdrop stand, a couple of backgrounds, a wood floor mat and en route a barnboard floor! What does this mean??? A FAUX STUDIO! That's right! Either right here in my very own kitchen where I have a southern facing window backed up to a wall full of west facing windows...so it can still be natural light...OR- it is portable enough to bring on location! This will be perfect for newborn sessions and mini sessions. I do need to master the lighting just a bit by using some reflectors, but here is my very first crack at it! I am really excited. Stay tuned my photog friends...I will share my complete set up with you right here on my blog ;).
Oh! And if you are reading this, please comment and let me know whatcha think! And give me a follow while you're at it :). I lost all of my followers when I moved blog addresses and I miss y'all!

Edited to add pic #2> I set this one up in my north facing garage AND used a reflector! WOW! What a difference!

Sneak Peek K Family {St Louis Children and Family Photographer}

What a FUN family :). I adore all 3 of them so much . THIS was a crazy hot shoot- like OVER 100 degrees type-a hot...but we all made it. Mom was a trooper and big brother B was so so sweet with his baby sister and hung in there like a champ. I cannot wait for our next session this fall (when it is a little cooler!). I had a blast and I hope y'all did too. Enjoy your sneak peek! I should have your gallery up quickly.

This is "Real Life Captured", lol. {St Louis Children's Photographer}

Oh this is SO accurate, lol. #1 tormenting #3 while #3 slyly finds a way to deal with it and #2 Mother Hen's #4 who was just busy minding his own business before the chaos began. Hahaha. I love these stinkers.

This little guy did NOT want to be smooshed between his two older sisters! And man he is so cute with this pouty little face. Love him!

Sneak Peek B Family! {St Charles Family Photographer}

Oh my goodness this was a fun shoot! These kiddos (and their mama) were so super fun. The girls need NO instruction for posing. They new how to strike a pose like little rock stars. And little Mr J....gah! Just so darn cute I could hardly stand it! Thank you so so much B family. I loved shooting your family and hope to do so again soon!
