One of my favorite things about photography is looking through my pictures and finding one that I know that my customer is going to love. Even when I do find that picture (or two or three) sometimes the picture needs to be edited. This one of my niece was pretty simple to fix up; it was a little dark so I went ahead and made it a little brighter. She also had a slight scratch on her nose, so I wanted to make sure that that was taken out of the picture, since she generally doesn't have that scratch. And that about sums up what I changed with the picture. Sometimes the simplest changes are the best.
I had a a fun time capturing my sister and her family at a moment in time while their family is quickly growing. I am glad that I was able to get everyone to sit down for a minute or two and to take some pictures.
My niece is two and a half and is a very sweet girl, who loves looking for the moon, listening to the clocks chime, and dancing. I was able to get some fun shots of her being a child and experiencing bubbles for the first time. She is such a joy.
My sister had a baby boy a couple of weeks ago and fortunately I had the opportunity to go and visit the family within two weeks of his being born. I am glad that I had the chance to meet baby Lynden, here are some of my favorite shots from the visit.
Melinda loves photography and hopes this love comes out through her work.
