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)
Edited with Colorplay Photoshop Actions: Clean Base +Ethereal, French Blue & Blush Brush
When the light is right, the location doesn’t matter… Here, she’s sitting in the barn garage. Looked good in color, but I couldn’t stop myself from converting it b/c in my mind the B/W hid the not so pretty background.
I had wanted to photograph her on my horse wearing this fur vest, but she didn’t want to. So while we groomed the horses, she sat in the back near the barn garage and played with her little horse toy… I couldn’t help but snap this while she wasn’t looking. Edited with Colorplay Actions: Clean Base + Dramarama & a little Definition Palette
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%
I love the Kwanzan Cherry Blossom Trees that grow here in Tennessee! Edited with Perfect Color + Ocean Air + Matte Toner from the Florabella Colorplay Actions set.
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).
“Just one picture, Mommy. Just ONE.”
Out by the barn in her nightgown, rainboots & messy hair… she cracks me up. ? Edited with Colorplay Actions: Subtle Color (as the base) + Brownish 43% + Sorbet at 85%

He waits by the door for her to come home from school…and then he follows her everywhere… they snuggle on the sofa, roll & play on the floor, and he sleeps on her pillow. ? It really is true love…
Editing here was quick from Colorplay: Clean Base (B/W turned on) + Dramarama

Reunited. ? It’s been 10 days since my husband fell while riding my sweet horse Paloma. While in the hospital with 5 broken ribs, he called me (in tears) worried about her… worried that she was upset and worried about him. Yesterday, the vet came to see Paloma, and Michael slowly walked out to the barn and into the stall next to her. She went right to him. He smiled at her and called her swe
As for the processing… super quick… Clean Base (with B/W turned on) from the Colorplay Actions set. No tweaks… then placed Light/Sunflare Overlay #17 on “Overlay” blending mode at 40%. The barn window as blown out (midday) so the soft light stream softened the image with just enough hazy light from the window. Sometimes a little goes a long way. Video tutorial on them here: http://www.florabellacollection.com/video-tutorial-light-and-sunflare-overlays.html And Thanks to everyone who has been concerned about m husband and Paloma… as you can see, both are recovering nicely.
My husband took a bad fall off of my horse Paloma… as he lay on the ground not moving, Paloma stood by him for a long while before she finally ran back to get help. After a 911 call, an ambulance ride, and hospital stay, my husband is home in much pain with 5 broken ribs. Upon telling my daughter Sophie Lu about his broken ribs, she replied, “Oh, Mama… it’s a good thing he had those ribs. Otherwise, when he fell off Paloma he might have broken his heart. I’m so glad Daddy didn’t break his heart.” I am so so blessed… not only that my husband is alive, but also that I have the sweetest daughter and horse in the world. ?
Gotta love a 3 yr old Ballet class… I believe the instructor said, “Girls, please stay in 1st position while waiting your turn”. Of course my daughter Sasha is the smiley one hanging upside down from the bar.This photo cracks me up! Processed with Clean Base + B/W conversion (soft vintage tone turned on)… from the new Florabella Colorplay Actions.
(Edited with Clean Base + B/W Conversion (Soft Vintage Tone) from the Colorplay Actions Set) I also ran the Detail Brush action over the carved headboard a bit.
Edited with Matte Film (as the base) + Sorbet, Wildheart, and Berry Wine at lowered opacities (all from the Colorplay Actions).
