Phew! That was a long vaca! Sometimes you feel like you need a vacation from vacation! :)
But I'm back and I'm ready to roll. I still have family in town for the next few days, but after that I will be editing and posting like nobody's business. Oooh, and my new blog is right around the corner! I can't wait.
My husband's not the only one who deserves a little R&R!!
Right now, although MIA and faaaaaaar away from my lovely home computer, I am still busy busy busy making photographic plans for my future. My sweet little usual subjects are feeling the biggest burden of camera-in-face syndrome, but they'll get over it. And love me for it when they're older. :) I'm also fitting some fun family photo shoots into my vacation time. Let's just say shooting a family with four kids ages 5 and under is rough. Especially when it's 85 degrees outside with 90 percent humidity. Does any one know of a de-sweat Photoshop action? I've got some cute, sweaty babies comin' your way!
And last but not least....my blog is in the process of a HUGE makeover. And by huge, I mean huge. The grand reveal will hopefully happen sometime in August. I don't know exactly when because I'm not the only one involved in this thing. But it'll be sweet. So get excited. :)
I like this photo cause my baby girl loves making the under water sound with her lips. This is her exact face every time it happens. Delicious. I love this kid. And I love that man. I'd say he was delicious too, but I'm pretty sure this blog is G-rated.
I learned a few new tricks in Photoshop today that makes my images look SO much cleaner. I LOVE it. Thank you Becky Earl Photograhy! You're really cool. :)
With all the photoshoots I was doing/editing for friends and family over the past few weeks, I hadn't taken as many pictures of my own kiddos. Poor babies. I'm sure they missed it terribly. Ha. So yesterday I took my baby girl out for her own mini photoshoot. Now, kids can be difficult subjects because they are so active and have attention spans lasting approximately five seconds. My kids have attention spans upwards of three seconds. This little girl of mine, as cute and calm as she may appear, is a little firecracker. She's got so much energy that sometimes I think she's just going to burst! Ok, maybe not quite that much. But close. So this photoshoot, with just me and her, was really funny as I chased her down and tried to get her to remain in one good lighting area. I should post some of my outtakes. Hmmm...maybe another day. But here are my faves from our 10 minutes of photo time. :)
This first one I edited a million ways and posted them all to see which one I like the best. I have yet to cast my vote. Which is your favorite?
Loves her mama!
I'm wondering if I should be putting my logo on all my blog pictures...Hmmm... Anyone know how to create your own action in Photoshop?
