Do you have a good photo that has the potential to be great? Maybe it just needs a little color pop or sharpening or perhaps it is screaming for a b&w conversion. My style tends to have a softer vintage quality. Below you can see a few examples where a little editing can transform a photo from snapshot to frame worthy!
This first photo was taken on an indoor studio set-up in my living room. You can see that the backdrop doesn't cover the carpet and you can see some random items in the background. Nothing a little Photoshop can't handle. I also did some slight skin smoothing and some color adjustments! HUGE difference!
This next one was done outside in a local field. It's pretty great as is so all it needed was some brightening and color adjustments. Then I did a b&w conversion because tender moments like this just HAVE to be done in b&w! It's one of my favorite images I've ever captured of my girls! So sweet!
And finally, this last image was just a snapshot I took this morning while Halle was playing in the living room with a hat she found in my closet. The color adjustments and the slight eye brightening make a huge difference!
So, who wants me to play with their photo?!

*Photos turn out best when the original is properly exposed and in focus. I prefer to edit natural light images. The pop up flash on most cameras tends to completely wash out the true colors of the subject.
