Make Over Monday

Here's this week's Make Over Monday.

I started by bringing the image into Lightroom and adjusting for exposure, color, and contrast. I also added a slight vignette and then exported it to Photoshop where I sharpened  and it was complete :)

The BEFORE picture is on the left.....the AFTER picture is on the right.

Lil Mr "B"

This family has been through a ton in the past year! I'm not going to go into detail, but this little guy is their little miracle and his poor daddy hasn't even gotten to meet his little miracle yet :(

I was completely honored to be able to photograph this sweet little angel, and wanted to give this family and all the other military families a huge THANK YOU for what you sacrifice for all of us!!!

Here are a few of my favorites from his session....enjoy!

Forget Me Not Landscape Design

This shoot was definitely something new for me, but I really enjoyed the challenge of something new and exciting! Roxy of Forget Me Not Landscape Design contacted me about shooting one of her designs....her very own backyard. I was amazed when I showed up....it was absolutely gorgeous! I adore looking through Better Homes and Gardens and magazines like that, so this was fun for me to create images that would work well in those magazines that I love :)

Here are a few of my favorite images from her session, and if you are in need of an excellent landscape designer give her a ring!!!

Carrie-Maternity

I've had several clients move out of state and each time it makes me so sad that I won't be able to document their family anymore! That is definitely the case with these guys. I first photographed their daughter when she was just a newborn, and now I get to photograph their new little guy just a few weeks before they move.

Here's a few of my favorites from their maternity session....enjoy!
