A blog I read, I Heart Faces, has an editing challenge, and this time I decided to give it a go.

I played with THIS and made THIS:

now i will try and remember what the heck i did!(I usually just play around until its not blown but its still bright and colorful)
In Lightroom...
up the contrast and brightness. add recovery. add vibrance. up the lights and darks in tonal curves.

In Elements...
defog. dodge the catchlights. burn the background. burn the highlights. a screen layer at 10%. up the contrast in levels.

i think that's it.

looking at the kissy face. {82.365}

i really wish she would look at me when i have the camera. it literally makes my stomach hurt when she refuses to look my way at all. i can sing, clap, make rude noises, dance, stomp, yell and she totally ignores me. i'm getting an ulcer.

have you seen my childhood?

we went to clemyjontri park today. we hadn't been since d was 9months old and barely crawling. it was a lot different today since it was uber crowded and my baby was running everywhere. she is such a social butterfly!

i'll dance with cinderella... {78.365}

i'm trading a wahm for some action shots of her product. i went out to practice, but d would not let go of her daddy.

also, i found where i flubbed my numbers in 365, so tomorrows picture will be #80!

today, delilah rubbed her mac and cheese hands off on her hair. And turned the coffee grinder on without anything to catch the grounds. They blew right in her mouth! SO she needed a bath. We blew bubbles with Calif. Baby bubble bath and mama got to practice with her speedlight!
