A four month old Princess and her lovely family!Â Doing a shoot with three adults, two dogs and a four month old with two outfit changes certainly has it’s challenges – but I had so much fun and love how the images turned out!
Lovely Mother-Daughter session.Â Such big beautiful brown eyes!
And my funny, awesome assistant Joe!Â Not afraid to do anything to help entertain this little one year old!
What a cute couple – He ADORES her (and in my opinion, that’s the way it should be 🙂 ).Â Love this couple!
Been WAY too long since I’ve participated in my ‘weekly’ project – the last few weeks – Friday would just sneak up on me and then it was gone.Â Well, I’m not going to be too hard on myself – Pick and choose your battles – I’m thankful for what I’ve accomplished so far.Â My kids seem happy and healthy – doing their extra curricular activities, homework, and doing well in school.Â I’m taking limited sessions and learning how to incorporate that in my life without too much pressure.
Ok – back to business:Â This past Wednesday was Halloween.Â I took a few snapshots.Â Nothing great – was going to grab a few of those and post for this theme, until last night when Mikey decided he wanted to actually ‘sell’ his candy!Â Genius!Â Go for it I told him and he did.
First he laid out all of his candy (he came home early from trick or treating – he actually asked someone for water instead of candy at one house!Â His brother got a lot more candy – Less candy = thumbs up from me).
Now please continue the circle to see what CLARA has come up this week!
Well – this week’s theme is ‘black and white’ and certainly I do plenty of that.Â But it’s been a while since I posted a Wall art post – and since a lot of my canvasses I have at home are of Black and White images, I figured I would put the two together.
My house is a work in progress.Â Slowly changing each room.
I’ve never really bought a piece of art that I have not either painted myself, or took the image and had it printed on Canvas.Â Â However, recently I did purchase something from Pottery Barn.Â I have it in my living room – and will point it out below.
btw – I get all my canvasses from Canvas On Demand.
My Office Wall.Â If you are interested in learning more on this one – Please go HERE.
And the Wood America piece is the first and only piece that I purchased for this house that I did not have a hand in creating.Â I got it at Pottery Barn.Â To be honest, I was a little underwhelmed once it was up on my wall.Â It looks soooo cool HERE.Â oh well. Â
I painted those panels – I did not originally intend for them to be on the mantel, which is why one has a frame and the other doesn’t.Â Â They are 24×60 wood panels I had made a long time ago and about a year ago I finally painted them.
Thanks for stopping by.Â Now please continue the circle to see Michele’s post.
Hey guys! Hope everyone is doing well!
I have had a lot of questions, emails, and (blushing) compliments on my BW processing. Thank you so much! My processing for BW has actually been the same ever since I started photography. I’m constantly trying new color processing to find what I love (I think I”m there…but we’ll see)…but my BW processing has been pretty consistent – I make changes here and there depending on the image – but that’s normal! (Or at least I think that’s the way it should be – Please let me know if you disagree and why!)
I’ve posted two videos with two different images – just because one of the effects is more prevalent in the second image. I am FULLY aware that these images are not perfect technically. I’m basically showing you my BW processing.
As I’m watching these video back, I’m noticing that the picture quality is really not great in the movie version. Hope this helps – give it a try –
