Remembering summer....Obviously, I didn't take this today. I'm putting it up in case I dont get something else before midnight tonight. I edited it today, so it almost counts. I was going through my image captures folder and found this lingering in there, unnoticed. This is an amazing place right near where I used to live. It's a designated "unique area". It's one of my favorite places in the world. Matt says he hated living in Tully, but THIS stuff is why I love Tully. I kinda miss it sometimes. Luckily it's not far away.

Out of Time

Dang!! I didn't make it before midnight!! I really did take that picture Saturday. I've been working on client albums all afternoon and evening and so I didnt start my PAD until too late. Drat. And Friday night I COMPLETELY forgot. This was one of the pictures from the first engagement session for our next season. Mike (the guy) said they were trying out for couple of the year. LOL. They are in the running, I'll tell ya. We have SO many great people coming up this year, though, it would be very hard to choose. I'm glad we dont really have to. Well, I guess I better head to bed. G'nite all!


Off the market!

I love maternity pictures! We had a maternity shoot today (obviously). My first one. I just love this. He looks so loving and peaceful. The duotone processing is an experiment. I'm not sure if we'll offer this version to the couple, but I kinda like it. It was hard finding a tone that I like, and I'm not at ALL sure that anyone else will like it. :o) But thats what experimentation is all about and I'm ALL over it. I had almost this exact idea in mind when I shot the picture so I'm pretty proud of myself for pulling it off, whatever kind of reception it gets. I know the pose is a pretty ordinary maternity pose, thats why I'm trying something different with the processing to make it more interesting. Let me know what you think. I'll try to be a big girl about it. lol.

I didnt set out today to be morbid. We went for a walk in the woods, since it was so nice and warm for these parts in January. I was hoping for some cute little squirrel pictures or pictures of birdys or ducks but the animals were all asleep or something and we ended our walk in the cemetary. I took a LOT of pictures, but this one just seemed more cooperative than the others. My editing is just not flowing today and I'm a little frustrated with it.

Aww!


Squirrel I didn't really take this today (as you can probably tell from the foliage in the background)... I just edited it today. Sorry. Still sick. I tried to take some pictures today but they came out ...well...terrible. So, since I don't have time to go through all that again, I will put this one up. Tomarrow is another day.
