Merry Christmas To You!

We are very blessed this year with a wonderful family and fun with our children! I wish you the merriest from our family to yours!
Of course a few pictures...
I love our tree this year, decked out with handmade ornaments from preschool. The boys loved decorating this year. And Abbie loved un-decorating.


Lots of Christmas activities at home... this was a favorite. This gingerbread house now sits on the shelf as a decoration but somehow the candies have gone missing!

Thanks for visiting and don't forget to schedule your 2010 photo session now to keep 2009 rates!

The Best Gift

An early scare, lots of false alarms, tons of waiting, and finally an induction... What a roller coaster for this family to bring home the best Christmas gift of all.
Here he is at 8 days old...

What a little blessing. So glad I got to be a part of his first days!

Editing + AZ Baby Photographer

Editing - much more than clearing pimples!

As sit here and edit pictures, I thought I would share some before and after pictures. There is so much that can be done with photoshop to enhance pictures. I am excited to put to use some recent techniques I have learned.

The first image is the shot sooc or "straight out of camera" and the second is after using some urban processing.
After Urban Processing techniques...

Here is one sooc.... underexposed and some harsh color casts coming from her pretty pink room and bright pink crib bumper and after editing

I have more of this cute baby to post tomorrow!

thanks for visiting,

Catching up! - AZ Child Photographer

Finally... I am getting to blogging these sneak peeks. This is always such a busy time of year so the blog often gets left behind. I had so much fun with these urban sessions! I got to put to use many of the things I learned from my recent photography workshop at the sessions. I also got to practice lots of new urban photoshop techniques. Here are tons and tons of pictures....
