I thought I would share a little vintage treatment from a recent session. I love these old frames from Rita's Coffee Shop blog. So cute! They are free for a web-sized download, so give it a try!
This is baby Judson peeking out for his first photos with me. He is just a doll!
It's definitely not my usual style of portrait editing, but it was a fun experiment!
I have had a hard time deciding which face to enter for the Best Face Photo of 2010 challenge over at the I Heart Faces site. Which is both a good and a bad thing. The good thing is that I had several images that I wanted to use! LOL That means that there has been a huge improvement this year...YAY!
In the end, I decided on this little girl from a December Christmas card shoot. She was absolutely sweet and such a mess! She alternated between posing, pouting and taking over my equipment. What a cute little helper. She made this particular expression in a lot of the photos. It was her "I'm so excited, I may bust!" face. I love the freckles, and the expression, and the fact that I wasn't going for a close-up. She just moved in on her own. I also loved getting cards this year that had images I had taken...how cool! This was one of the pictures on the front of their card in black and white (which I also loved!) It was one of the first sessions that I was asked to do, instead of recruiting the models. I guess it kind of represents a shift if my journey, so it means something special to me.
So, there is my face of the year. Head over to the site to see some beautiful work, and gorgeous faces of all shapes and sizes.
Here is my silhouette entry. (How many times did I respell that word? LOL) My two girls whispering...
