This week I planned to do a family photo session, but the weather didn't cooperate.  We had a ten minute window before the rain started pouring.  I managed to get some sweet shots of this adorable little guy.

Before and After

 I have a confession to make.  In the last blog, I planned to write about how I had learned to move forward with things and not get bogged down in details.  The problem was that I spent over 45 minutes rewriting my paragraph and eventually tossed the whole thing out.  Guess I'm still working on that one.

It's not all bad though.  Attention to details is the difference between an okay photo and a photo rich with color and details.  So, although I usually don't like to show clients the "before" photos, I wanted to illustrate the difference it makes to focus on the details.

Here's another example.  Notice the difference in the background. 


Another reason these photos look so much better is that I discovered Photoshop Actions from  I love this site!  These actions makes it so much easier to bring photos up to the next level.  You'll find so many beautiful photos and helpful tools there.  Check it out!

Website and Summer fun

For the longest time, I've wanted to create a website where I could share photos I've taken of friends and family.  So a few days ago, became a reality.  It's been an awesome learning process for me and I'm excited to share my love of photography with others.

Summer Fun:
The start of school today signaled the end of summer for our family.  But before I get too caught up with school craziness,  I wanted to recapture in photos the wonderful summer we had.

Our big family trip was to Strawberry Reservoir, near Heber, Utah.  We rented a pontoon boat and stayed in the nearby lodge for a few days.  Everyone had a chance to fish, or at least hold a fishing rod.
