Happy New Year ! Fall of 2013 was a very busy one for me. I am just now getting to updating the blog with some of the fabulous sessions, including this one with the Patterson Family! I enjoyed chatting with the kids about their musical interests and how different school for them is from when I was there age. I’m getting old you guys – after all, I am approaching 30! We had a lot of fun walking around Coker Arboretum. Despite the vanishing sunlight and frat parties happening in close proximity, we had a great time!
I tried some new editing techniques with these photos. Blemishes and facial inconsistencies are normal and certainly natural, but they do not define who you are! I did not want to do an “extreme makeover” and achieve a Barbie look, but I did want to enhance the smile and smooth the skin. I also whitened the teeth, added a bit of sparkle to the eyes, and brightened some of the harsh shadows. Think of it as applying digital foundation! When the clients saw the photos they loved them.
