6 weeks old this time

Went to visit my hubby’s sister and her family. Can’t resist their new little baby boy! Had to take some 6 week photos of him 🙂 He has got to be the cutest little thing I’ve ever seen besides my own of course! I had to reformat my computer due to a virus ughhh and had to redownload all of my actions/presets for photoshop! Took me forever to find the facebook action I love. But I get all of my actions from thecoffeeshopblog.com and the facebook one that I love is from http://everydayelementsonline.com/actions/free-actions/ so at least if I lose it again I can look at this blog post instead of searching everywhere for it. I am also interested in trying out lightroom but don’t have a clue how to use it yet! Will probably do the 30 day trial and see if I like it better than photoshop!

Does he just look like a little native american baby? Haha my little boy sure didn’t look this native!


Merry Christmas Friends

Our cute little Christmas card.  I was very pleased with the way it turned out.  I’ve been doing a little bit of obsessive crocheting which of course fanned out over the last few days.  And I’ve all but given up on my 30 & 365 day challenges lol.  I’m terrible.  So much for trying to make it and get better!  But I did get my studio lights a few weeks ago and have been playing with those.  I also bought the photovision DVD’s in an effort to help myself build up confidence and learn some tricks I would probably otherwise not have learned.  And they are helping tremendously 🙂 I have a few pics to post though as I have been very busy.  I wish I could post my boudoir photos I did last week but she doesn’t want them public and I can’t blame her even though she looks beautiful in all of them!  I took a few Christmas photos of Kedric, 3 month photos of my nephew Bryson with a new hat I crocheted, family photos, some one year old photos and of course the boudoir that I can’t post 🙂

Welp the Thomas family photos will have to wait until next time.  They’re on the portable hard drive and I’m not sure what my son has done with it!  Speaking of hard drives….I’m glad I got the Sam’s Club extended warranty on my computer because here about two weeks ago my computer told me it needed replaced.  So luckily I was able to get what I thought were a few pictures (turned out to be around 8500) off of my computer and onto the portable and the few documents off of here in time.  And to make things even better they were able to transfer everything onto the new hard drive so I didn’t even need to reinstall anything!  So that makes me happy but I do need another portable hard drive.  Mine is full!!!  Merry Christmas every one 🙂 and Happy Holidays! 


Whitaker Family Outing

Well we joined the Whitaker’s today for a photo shoot. We brought our son along to help get their daughter’s attention 🙂 My son snuck into one of the pictures and I had to edit him out! It was sooo cute though!




Two of my favorites. This is a natural sun flare in both of these photos…well all of them that have a sun flare! Just a little color editing to brighten the rest of the picture up!


I love love love these two outside pics! I think they are so adorable!




How can you not love this little cutie 🙂


What a fun beautiful day! Not too many more days like this so it was good we took advantage of it! First time I’ve tried these web templates and I think they turned out great. They’re from the coffeeshopblog! Sure made them fast to upload and didn’t eat up much of my internet 🙂


Day 14 – way behind

Day 14 Eyes
My husband thinks this is soooo gay but I couldn’t do it to myself or my son because I couldn’t get my camera to focus just on my eyes and my son’s eyes are way too dark. Mine are pretty brown too so it wouldn’t have looked as cool. My husband’s eyes have this ring around them and they’re lighter than ours. Pretty simple trick even if it does look gay…just add a new layer. Harden the brush and paint rainbow circles inside the eyes then gaussian blur it til it is pretty fuzzy and change layer to overlay and wahlaw! And of course erase any mistakes 🙂


Day 6 – 8

Day 6 From a Low Angle
I had to put two up because I loved them both. I wanted to do this while it was sunny and even waited an extra day or two but alas no sun just rain! But rain means rain droplets on the leaves!

Day 7 Fruit
My son loves bananas! But now that he’s turned one he’s decided to protest quite a few foods so we have to keep something he likes on hand!

Day 8 A Bad Habit
UGH I feel like I’m on facebook ALL the time! Checking my business page, checking my email, checking facebook, and it’s so hard to not be addicted to it! I’m trying out Google plus though and hoping it’s a little easier to use. It seems like I miss out on a lot of my friend’s goings ons. Haha…


Days 30 – 37

Day 30 Symmetry
My dog Moo is pretty symmetrical 🙂

31. Horizons
Just a normal everyday sunset on Whitehorse Road.

32. Color: Red
A purplish red leaf.

33. Color: Blue
Our Ferrelgas propane tank lol yea I know I’m getting desperate but it’s still a cool pic.

34. Color: Green
A bean plant growing!!!

35. Color: Yellow
My biggest pepper….I don’t remember what kind of pepper it is though.

36. Color: Purple
A clover. My horses are going to love their new pasture if they every get up here.

37. Color: Brown
This turned out to be an awesome pic. Koda, my cattle dog, has what is called a cracked eye. where a part of her eye has like glass crackle in it. It’s a whitish color. It’s common in the Louisiana Catahoula’s which is why we think she’s part catahoula and heeler due to her spotty coloring and the cracked eye.


Day 26-28 Time to Water

Day 26 Time
Sooooo I wanted to do something like that for the time challenge. It was a 30 second exposure. I was trying to catch the airplanes and lightening bugs in the yard. I guess I should have set the exposure for them for 5 seconds. But our road doesn’t have a lot of traffic and I turned the camera around and set it down fast when I saw the neighbor coming down the road! So here’s my blur of their van with a filter from photoshop.

Day 27 Texture
Well this is either a bean plant or a weed growing in my bean plant row 😀 I’m hoping it’s a bean plant! But I love the texture in this photo….even though it’s grass growing where my beans should be.

Day 28 Water
And last but not least nasty bird bath water. I guess I need to fill it up but it’s one of those things I really don’t care about. The bird bath is located on top of the concrete cover for our septic tank….so yea.
