Family/ Prego Pics

My dear friend Lori Smith from Photography by Lorien came out with us to snap some belly pics and the fam bam.  We went later in the evening I think we left the house at 7:30.  I wanted to get the sunset and some sun flare but I wasnt thinking of the West hills being in the way so by the time we got out to our location the sun had already gone behind the West mountains.  Thank goodness for photoshop to help out with the lighting.  Lori was kind enough to just hand over the pics and let me have at em.  As you can see from the before and after below photoshop is amazing.  After tweaking my lighting levels I used Pioneer Women's Bost and Lovely actions set.  It helped to brighten and soften the graininess of the evening light.Photobucket

Just played wth the lighting levels and used Pioneer Womens boost to bring out th bright colors.

This one I used a country vintage action set Pure Actons to match the girls individual pics that I had done earlier that same evening and in the post below

 I also did all the pics in this PW Heartland action and added a pink tone to it to print and possibly hang in her room. 

More Back to School Fun

So we headed out to do our "real back to school pics"  we used our office building...it has a new updated face to it but in the back and side are some great old Brick walls and some metal garage doors...we chose the Brick walls.  We did a quick set up and light test and hopped to it.  As we were finishing up two fellow photogs joined in on the good summer evening light.  Super fun to see us all out doing what we love.  These top three are edited with Pure Actions Country Vintage... I wanted to do somethin different for some prints in my house ummmm Cairo's is to die for....melt my heart..have I told you she really thinks she is a Princess.  Syd was having an akward nigt not sure what was up but could not get a good look from her and London was up till all hours of the night at a sleepover (she is still reaping the consequences of that one) but you can tell in the pics this was even after a four hour nap.   Oh well they will have to work for now.

Back to School Pics

Here was our fun quick throw together back to school shoot.  Wardrobe, hair and makeup designed by these preteeners.  This is sort of what my girls' real Back to School pics will look like but maybe in an all grass field or any kind of field and evening light with maybe some sun flare and of course some of thie new school clothes and yes shoes this time.  But with these cute girls it was still fun to play around.  Let me know if you may be interested in some of these pics may just do this weekend.

Baby K

Had so much fun shooting again.  It has been awhile.... a little preocupied nesting.... way too many projects before baby girl arrives in November.  I was so glad when a friend called and asked if I woud take these pics.  We had fun playing dress up...although she didnt everytime she would get coz we would snap what we needed and then change her and have to get her all cozy agan.  Love how they turned out and love the vintage editing (Pioneer Womens Heartland Action).  Cant wait to do my baby girls.....or maybe I can.
