Photo Share

Sorry about the long break between posts….I am really trying to post more often, I promise I am! Things are crazy busy as was expected and I am just trying to keep up! I have a ton of photo shoots to share so I will try to post some new ones from the past weeks every day or every other day. Then as I get to editing the more recent ones I will also share from those. 

Anyway, lots of gorgeous and fun families and some newborns as well coming soon!! So, don't give up on me… keep checking back and I will try to keep posting through the craziness! :) 

Also, I have some scrapbook projects to share as well so check back for those soon too. I jumped on board with Ali Edward's December Daily Album project and created mine last week. I jumped right in and finished it all in one day and can't wait for December to get here so I can start adding the pictures and journaling. For now, check out Ali's blog for details on the whole process and idea (if you haven't already) and then I will photograph mine and share it soon!

This a family that I photographed a couple of weeks ago. I loved the colors of blue that they were wearing and I am still in awe over the little guy's eyes! They were so beautiful and sparkly and so fun to photograph!!

Storyboard 1

These last three images are some of my favorite from the session so I put them on a storyboard for them. I used my new Color Mix Actions on all of these photos (except for the black and white). For the last three I was playing around and I think I found a new favorite way of mixing the actions. First I ran the Urban Cool action and reduced the opacity on it a little bit. Then I flattened the image and then ran the antique action. I love how the antique action looks when you run it after running the urban cool…. so fun and gives such a different look than when you run either of those actions by themselves. If you have this set of actions, be sure to give it a try and tell me what you think! I hope you love it as much as I do!! 

And by the way, the little guy's eyes are really that gorgeous blue color!! All I did was run my Urban Cool action and I reduced the opacity down a little so it wasn't so strong. But other than that little color boost, I didn't touch his eyes!! Gorgeous huh??
