I do not know how many times I have had to edit out little scratch marks, drooling redness, rashes, etc from babies’ faces. We do not charge for this editing so it is all done out of the sweetness of my own heart. (← Need to say with Southern Accent) A couple of weeks ago we had a photoshoot postponed a week of my nephew Zack. He is five months old and loves to scratch!! His face was, I think I used the term, “jacked up”. I am a stay at home mom and watch my sister’s kids during the day to make some extra cash. I decided that I wanted to see if the healing powers of Aquaphor would work on Zack’s face. I use Aquaphor for Rocco’s eczema, diaper rashes, drooling marks and pretty much any skin condition that comes up. I have to say, the following week when the shoot took place he was a new baby!! His face was flawless, well there was one mark, but one mark is a lot quicker to remove then ten. It was amazing. I am always trying to save time in editing and this will be my new trick with the babies, as long as I can get the mommies on my side.
By the way, I did do some color enhancements but did not remove any marks from Zack’s face.
I (well, actually Chris!) recently discovered Shannon Sewell on [FRAMED] — if you haven’t checked it out, you should!: www.framedshow.com/ Ok, so I LOVE her and find out she’s coming to Santa Cruz for a workshop. I signed up… and a Friday or so ago spent an amazing day with her and 10 other talented women at the Bonny Doon Winery. It was a glorious day and so FUN and I learned a TON! Here is a shot of Shannon in action and one of the adorable models. And below that, a few pics of my friend Annemarie and her two kiddos using a new lens and a few new Photoshop actions (www.actions.nicholeV.com) — THANK YOU SHANNON for sharing so much with us all! ~Debbie
We love to have nature in our shots and this time of year is the most colorful. At our last photoshoot the mom made the most beautiful bouquet of flowers. They were so fun and we ended up using them in almost every shot!!
There are many more to come but these were a couple that I wanted to share for now.
