Kitty + Sasha = love. ? Two things I don’t do when I’m grief stricken (as I have been since my horse Willow died)…. I don’t drink, and I don’t shoot. But this morning, the kids were sitting at the breakfast bar, and the light was so pretty in my kitche… so I grabbed my camera and a couple vintage hats for the girls. I was trying to get a cute one of Sasha, but her best kitty friend Pierre stole the shot (so sweet)! Edited with Subtle Color + Buttercream + Blush Brush from Colorplay and 1968 from Classic Workflow Photoshop Actions )
Seriously… who does he think he is?? lol… I try to get work done, but then I look over and see him sitting in the chair like this! He is too cute for my own good! (and I can’t resist him, could you?)
(Actions used: Colorplay… Subtle Color (base) + Brownish 35% & French Blue 100%…. then the block of color on left & sheer white lace border from the Color Matte Actions & Design Kit ) ?
Happy Valentine’s Day!! (Heart shaped glasses AND heart shaped lips on my sweetie!) Since it is the day of love… I must confess, ” I LOVE photographers!!” ? Thank you to all my beautiful, talented photographer friends out there for your love and support always!
Edit here: Color Block w/ border from the Color Matte set and Clean Base + Wildheart & Color Depth from the Colorplay Set: http://bit.ly/Colorplay ?
What a sweetie she is… and I love her freckles! As a photographer, one of the greatest rewards is to know you’ve made someone feel special… During a beach shoot, my friend and her daughter (here) walked by. I grabbed her daughter, threw on some accessories and took a couple shots. I heard later that seeing her photo gave this little girl the confidence boost she needed… made me feel so good. Isn’t she a beauty? ? (posted before in B/W, but I think I prefer the color… edited with Classic Workflow actions: Classic Color + 1968 + Soft Pink Haze http://www.florabellacollection.com/
I love her face… and I love freckles! (Edited with Subtle Color w/ B/W turned on… then a little drama with the Definition Palette… from the Colorplay set http://bit.ly/Colorplay … then All in One Eyes from the Retouch / Makeover set)
My sweet, beautiful girl… I’ve never even trimmed her hair. It’s getting so long.Edited with Classic B/W from the Classic Worfklow Actions set.
I love these of my sweet Sasha so much… Featuring the darling new “Classical Cardi” by ZozoBugBaby (special “Sasha Special” introductory price of only $28) and edited with the new Colorplay Photoshop Actions (recipe: Matte Film (base) + Berry Wine & Summer Peach + Blush Brush).
My sweet girl at the beach… I was trying to get her to model a beautiful lace sash by Gracylu Originals, but she wanted to wear it on her head and be a queen instead. Silly girl… Colorplay actions here: Clean Base + Ethereal 100%, French Blue 74% & then Colorpop (to add a bit skintone safe color) at 20% & Blush Brush on lips, cheeks.
I love her lashes… Pretty lace sash (not meant for her head lol made by Gracylu Originals)

I love red & teal together… ? Edited with the new Colorplay set only (including a little retouching & color correction)…
Not sure what it is, but I love this photo so much… I caught her looking so serious & twirling her hair (which she does a lot!)… The lighting was awful & rather than taking the time to color correct, I just ran B/W Vintage Film which is one of the bonus actions from the Colorplay set… Seems to work great on hard to process images, and I think it created an interesting vintage quality to this that I love…
Do you get excited when you realize you’ve captured your reflection in your subject’s eyes? (I do!) And it’s much easier w/ large horse eyes and good barn light! ?
Editing here is the new Colorplay actions… here I used the Recipe Maker (so easy and fun)… this was a combo of: Clean Base + Peace 100%, Ocean Air 35%, Alabaster 25% and Berry Wine at 80%
Easy, rich color pop edit using the Colorplay Photoshop Actions set: Perfect Color + Brandy + Definition Palette (& Blush Brush on lips/cheeks)…
I love a pastel color palette… ? Processed with Colorplay Actions: Matte Film (as the base) + Antique Pink & Ethereal….
When I need a creative boost, I shoot still life… if you haven’t tried it, you should! Flowers and fruit are so much easier than kids! ?
Edited with Colorplay Actions: Matte Film (as base) + Antique Pink + Ethereal (then I used Color Brush to boost the color of the fruit & bowls).
