Baby’s first Halloween, 8 months old.
I thought I’d let you see the world of difference that post-processing or photo editing really does to a portrait. Depending on an image, the amount of work that goes into editing varies. Close-up portraits typically require more meticulous attention, especially to even out skin tones, than your whole body shot. Mid to full length images, where the face is not the main focus, can become a canvas for more artistic edits such as the vintage conversion of the bridal image below.
Take a look at some of my Before and After and see how the images differ…
Do you like the ‘After’ images? Yes or no, the choice is completely personal! 🙂
The day could not have been more perfect for this session that took place the day after bride and groom got married. Chicago weather is definitely unpredictable, but with showers in the forecast, we were prepared for the worst… At the end, my umbrella remained unopened, and the happy couple might even have gotten a little suntan while modeling on the sunny streets of Chicago.
I wanted to specifically position the bride and groom in order to capture Adam’s funky socks that match perfectly the bride’s shoes and the overall scheme of the wedding.
What a photo it turned out!
This is one of my favorite images of the bride – she just looks so radiant here!
We accidentally stumbled upon this great location and managed to get down and dirty for the sake of some creative shots – this was a Trash the Dress session after all. 🙂
We did open one umbrella for this photo shoot…. The bride’s mother, a very crafty woman, has made this umbrella especially for this occasion. I can’t wait to see how the Thank You cards turn out!
It was child photographer’s dream, perhaps, to be surrounded by so many adorable little babies. They were all so precious and cute in their summer outfits, it was difficult not to take more than one picture of each baby, and so I didn’t stop myself :)…
