yearbook

late sunday afternoon - the girl, the photographer and the mom....and lots of experiments in photoshop. 

mom wanted some beauty shots...and as always, christy and i like to goof around.  this set was taken at fort tolouse, a state park near wetumpka, alabama.  i was swooning over the abundant spanish moss and will be back there soon!














but even my best model has some "oops" shots

  1. I love them all but the one with the sun flare behind her is my favorite . I love the new header. I was wondering how much would you charge to do a header similar to yours for my blog if you had the time? I am thinking of upgrading my dslr this year from a rebel xt to another which camera and lens do you use? I hope you have a lovely weekend.

  4. Looks like a beautiful day. I like the one of your model holding the camera, with the sun behind her. It has the look of an old photograph, from the 70s maybe.

  12. Such lovely photos--although, now she will have absolutely nothing to complain about when she's older. :)

    And, I must admit, I loved the "oops!" ones just as much!

  23. She's a cutie in all the shots...even the oops ones.

    Was that big wooden wall that color or was the coloring the result of a filter in PS? It is stunning.

  24. This is your daughter Char? She's absolutely beautiful! I love her eyes, her smile, that hair ... oh to be that young and so attractive. She has a light that radiates from within.

    Glad you girls had so much fun!
