Bigger Size

Bigger pictures...YAY. I found a way to over-ride blogger and make the pictures bigger, what do you think?

Before and After

Since getting my new photoshop program I'm learning that post-processing is almost as important and taking the actual photo. Don't get me wrong--without a great photo it wont matter how much editing you do, but with photoshop you can add so much life and character to a photo.
I want my final photo to be as magical and exciting as it seemed "in-the-moment." Take this picture of Paxton for example, when I took the picture I was laughing and so was Paxton. We were both having a great time, and I remember thinking how handsome he looked-but when I look at the picture SOOC (straight out of camera) it doesn't seem as magical as Paxton was in the moment I took it. But with post-processing, I was able to make it look just as I remember when I snapped it.

Before SOOC
Somewhat dull and life-less.

After- Magical :)


Fun at Smallwoods!

Ava- Edits

I've really been having some fun with photoshop (again.) I've done some new edits of my favorite picture of Ava using some MCP actions!

Miss Ava Maria

This is little Ava. I originally planned on taking some pictures of her outside, but the weather didn't cooperate, so we made a "make-shift" studio in her bedroom on top of the dresser :) It worked out pretty good!

This is my favorite!
