Nicole & Taylor


I recently took a visit to Sacrewell Farm with Nicole and Taylor, my grandchildren, specifically to do a photoshoot.  When we got there the weather was gorgeously sunny, but wouldn't you know it, after about half an hour, the rain came down and didn't stop.  We did however get a few lovely photo's, then went over to my daughters house to finish off the session.

Now I know this isn't a child shot, but I do love it.  First I bumped up the brightness & contrast using a curves layer.  I wanted a vintage look, so I ran an action on it (Creamy Chocolate Black & White), from The Coffee Shop blog.  Then I ran a Vignette action to darken the corners.  The Coffee Shop is run by Rita, she has some amazing Photoshop actions, and best of all they're free....now how good is that.

Here's a shot of Nicole, running off to see the animals.  I love these type of shots that show a little bit of action, yet keep a little mystery.  Look at her cute little wellies, and those gorgeous curls at the back of her head.

Now, what's all this then....

How's this for a cheeky smile...and look who's been kissing the girls...(tooth missing).
Now here's some shots we took in an improvised studio at my daughters house, when we came back after it started to rain.

There....just a few....there are many more as I'm sure you'll guess.  Can't wait until the next session....apparently Nicole has a tutu and a wand, now that should be fun.

Take care
