This gorgeous little girl is Olivia Imam. She is my son Emmett's best friend's little sister :) Olivia was so cooperative and is such a sweetheart. Her tiny little features are perfect! Here are a few of my favorite photos that we did in her home:

Here is my custom family photo card. I was hoping to make a Christmas card, but that got put off. I was hoping to make an Easter card, but that got put off. There was no special holiday, so it was to simply say "We love you" to all our family and friends. Rakell Lowe took the cute photos for us (visit her at http://photographsbyrakell.blogspot.com/). And my mom helped me make the suspenders and bow ties for my little men! I have to say that I loved sending it out at a time other than Christmas because it was unexpected! It didn't blend in with the millions of cards fluttering through the December mail.
I LOVE designing. It always brings a smile to my face to start with a blank screen and end with something I love. Please contact me with any questions, ideas, requests.

My first time painting with light and capturing moving light was for this post. I really enjoyed it. My favorite was #3. We put our Christmas tree up that night, and I decided to see how the different colored lights would look. I started out taking the picture really close and stepped backwards quickly a few times before the 3.2 sec ran out. The effect was awesome. For #2 it took me a while to write anything that was legible. I used my husband's pen light. I tried different words and symbols and the G looked the best. For #1 I captured tail lights while breaks were on turning the corner. For all 3 pictures I did simple edits in camera raw.

For both my pictures, when I printed the drafts they were much darker and bluer than on my screen. I realized that by switching them to print CMYK the change happened. I compared it on the screen to RGB and it looked a lot worse as CMYK. For the final large print I printed RGB and I was much happier. For this shot I actually got some flowers at Broulims. I love gerbera daisies and wanted some pretty ones (and of coures I couldn't find any outside in Rexburg right now). I took the photos outside with natural light on aperture priority mode, and I adjusted the settings a bit in camera raw (saturation, vibrance, clarity, fill light, blacks). But overall they were a pretty bright orange to begin with. Then I cropped them to the size I wanted and fixed the resolution. I think the resolution ended up being 107. The end.
