About Me

My photo
I love Jesus. I love my family. I love photography. I love books. I love thinking. Probably in that order. I have a wonderful husband, five beautiful daughters, a house, and a camera. I enjoy spending time talking to my husband, playing with my girls, redecorating my house and shooting things with my camera. In my spare time, I sleep.

Before & After: Young Love


This is a photo I took last week of my newly engaged sister & her fiance during our day at the lake.  I thought it was sweet.

Before:

After:

Edited in Paint Shop Pro.
--------------------------------------------------

Basic run down of what I changed (for Julia):

-Cloned out my neice's head
-Upped the contrast & changed brightness level.
-Upped saturation.
-Tweaked the color balance.
-Added personalized vignette.
-Added texture layer.
