Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Here you will find a culmination of things including tons of photos of my children, random thoughts on life and my journey to build a Photography business, sneak peeks for clients, and who knows what else :) I.LOVE.PHOTOGRAPHY.

I am a mostly self-taught Wedding and Portrait Photographer and I am always looking for new clients. I prefer on-location, natural light Photography and I am always looking to challenge myself! I recently relocated to Central Oregon and am available for photoshoots in any of the nearby areas. Please feel free to contact me if you like my work and are interested in scheduling a session with me! I would love to hear from you!

Grab some coffee and stay awhile :) And if you see an image you like, feel free to leave a comment...I love comments!

I didn't get this done in time to get it posted yesterday, but I still wanted to get my edit up. Every Friday, i heart faces has "Fix it Fridays" where they give you an image to play with and then you can edit it yourself and tell everyone what you did. This is my first time doing this and I really enjoyed it.

Here is the original image:

And here is my edited version:

1. Quick selection around Emma and adjusted levels to brighten her up a bit.
2. MCP Burnt Edges action overlay at 60%.
3. Distressed texture overlay at 100% and erased off skin.
4. Broken up texture overlay at 63% and erased off skin
5. Cropped image.
6. Slight lens flare added.

Hope you like my edit! Check out all the others at i heart faces!
