I Heart Faces- Sun Flare entry

I went back and forth with what entry to enter at I Heart Faces for the sun flare and I decided on this one of a father and son that I took during their family photo shoot. They happened to be friends of ours too. I love the natural laugh they both have. Don't ask me what they were giggling about because I don't remember. LOL I got sun flare in the photo and wasn't really wanting to but I was pleased when I saw it. Anyway, here it is! I am sure it's not a winner but I liked it!! :)

Constructive Feedback Friday

Today at I Heart Faces they are not doing their regular Fix IT Friday but letting us post a photo for the more expereinced ones critique our edits. I am defintely learning this whole Photoshop editing thing so I would love some feedback. I chose this photo of my son and daughter walking in the yard. I just love it! They love each other so much and my son ,RJ, is such a good big brother to his littel sister Maddyn! I love the hand on her back and I love the simple little thing of seeing their backs of one of their feet each as they walk.
Here is the original:

here is my edit:

Do you like the black and white? Should I crop it somehow? Do you like the burnt edges? Any thoughts are appreciated?

I heart Faces- Contemplation entry

This week at I Heart Faces, is the theme Contemplation. I chose this picture of my daughter Maddyn I just took a few days ago. I had got one of my new lenses (24mm-70mm f2.8 Lseries canon lense! YAY!) and so I put my daughter in s cute tutu and headband I got form Walmart(yep cute-can't really see it in this picture) and took her outside  in our yard for some photos. I love this one because she is just studying this flower intently. I love this toddler age. Everything is so interesting to them and so new. Anyway, thanks for looking and if you want to see other great photos, go to I Heart Faces
Here are some other photos from this shoot in case you would like to see. :)
My Son RJ
Thanks for looking!!

Fix it Friday Sept 11

What a beautiful baby face we all get to play around with this week. I could so squeeze those cheeks! thanks for letting us use it!

I haven't posted anything to I Heart Faces in so long!

Here is the original

here is my first post

I kind of gave it a vintage look I guess. I applied two actions from Pioneer Woman. First I used Fresh and colorful and adjusted the opacity of the layers a bit and then I applied the PW Black and white. I didn't flatten the image first. the Light layer was highlighted and I just applied the Black and White action then adn this is what it came out as.

My second one is this:
I applied a simple intensify action from Itty Bitty 52 action set and then popped the eyes with coffee shop Eye Bright.

My last one is this:
I belive that I took the one above and popped the color again and then applied a b&w action to it without flattening it first. It's almost 1 am and I should be in bed and right now , I can't remember exactly what I did to this one!!! LOL
See some other GREAT fixes at I Heart Faces!
