Kim & Jason TTD

Well, since Facebook has taken over and the blog has been neglected, I think I am down to like 8 readers.  And since Kim and Jason are two of those frustrated, neglected souls, the least I can do is post photos of them from their Trash the Dress session yesterday.  It was Africa hot yesterday, but we got some gret stuff and had some good laughs getting it.

One of the first shots of the afternoon:

We stopped at Rita’s for some cool refreshment and caught the attention of management, who came outside to take their own photos to send to corporate.  We each walked away with smiles and free Rita’s in hand.  THANK YOU to the girls at the Odenton Rita’s!!

Then we stopped at an unnamed rival school that boasts a pretty sweet field and took some fun pics:

And just in case we forget which anniversary we are celebrating:

Then it was off to Ben Oaks, where Kim & Jason had their first kiss.  DSC_0504

 

Then Kim really wanted a water shot, but she was a little afraid of crabs.  Here’s what happens when she suspects a crab is underfoot:

And I got this great shot of just Kim at the beginning of the night:

I had a great time, you two.  Love you both!

Dr. Aidan in the house

Yesterday I got to visit with Aidan and Caleb, who I haven’t seen since shortly after Caleb was born.  He is now 3 months old, and quite a chubby bubby!  Mom wanted to get some shots for Daddy’s office, so here is Caleb being a great sport while he is given a thorough once-over by Dr. Aidan:

I also love this shot:

And I got a few of just Caleb to mark his 3 month milestone:

And these last two are just irresistable…he is so expressive!

This one makes  me giggle…

Want to taste photoshop?

One big question at my workshop was how do you edit and enhance your photos.  Well, I use Photoshop CS3.  But I started out using Elements (which is a mini version) and I think it is packed with all kinds of good stuff for you fotoholics.

For those of you wanting to learn Photoshop, this is a great place to start!  And from 6/15 – 7/5, Costco is offering Elements for $30 off…so only $49.99!  That is a steal!  Pick up a dummy guide to go with it, and you will learn all kinds of new tricks for making fab images!
