Rainy Day with Caroline and Grace + A Reminder

Hello!

The other day it was very rainy, so Caroline and Grace got dressed up to go out in the storm and enjoy the weather. I’ve been planning to do this photoshoot for a while, so I’m excited to finally be posting it! Enjoy the photos!

A Final Shoot from my Trip

Hi! Happy Thursday!

Today I have the last photoshoot that I got of Caroline during my recent trip (which was actually a few weeks ago now)

Right before we left I started posing Caroline on the porch railing to get a few last minute pictures.

Which picture do you prefer, top or bottom?

The lighting wasn’t that great–I don’t recommend getting all your photos with full sunlight– but after editing I think they improved.

What do you think of the lighting?

Ahh, much better! Under the shade of the porch, the lighting makes for much better photos!

And the last one, a farewell to our trip!

 

I hope you enjoyed this little photoshoot! That’s about it for posts from my family trip.

What did you think of the pictures? The lighting?

What kind of posts would you like to see next?

 

Have a blessed day! I plan to get another post up next Thursday!

Head in a Book – Photoshoot with Caroline

Hello!

Who remembers me saying in my last post that I hoped to get this one out early… 😉

Time flies!

I guess editing 21 pictures took longer than I expected, but I hope that you will enjoy this fun photoshoot that I took while on a trip a couple weeks ago! I had fun taking this shoot of Caroline enjoying some of her favorite things: being outdoors in nature and reading!

So here it is!

I have another, smaller photoshoot that I took last minute before leaving from our trip, so you will probably be seeing that one sometime soon as well!

 

Which picture was your favorite? Have you taken any trips this summer? If not, what is your dream summer trip?

 

Have a blessed day! ❤

Family Trip – With Pictures of Caroline

Hello!

Currently I am on a trip with my family for the week! I decided to bring Caroline along and get photos of her for you all.

DSCN7124

Coming soon, I have a photoshoot of Caroline to show you all! Though my current posting schedule is every Thursday, I might post the photoshoot sooner.

Until then, I have some pictures from the day we left. On our way, my grandpa stopped the car so I could get some pictures of the lovely view outside. I grabbed Caroline from the car and took a few pictures there.

Enjoy!

Pretty as a Princess – A Caroline Photoshoot with Photoshop Editing

Hi there!

Today I have a short photoshoot of pretty Caroline. She is modeling the dress I won in American Girl Fan’s giveaway. It is such a pretty, silky dress!! Thank you Rolling Rock Dolls and American Girl Fan! Underneath the skirt, I added a tulle tutu that I made, making the dress more like a full, old-fashioned-type gown.

Since I just got Photoshop, I wanted to use this photoshoot as a sort of Photoshop trial run. I edited each of the pictures using Photoshop.

After the photoshoot (note: it’s a pretty short photoshoot 😉 ), I’ll show you a few before and after pictures to show the difference from editing, and I also have one fun, play edit, as well!

 

Enjoy!

Editing really helps bring out her pretty eye color!

This is one of my favorites 🙂

Another of my favorites 😉

And one last look at her pretty dress.

 

 

That’s the end of the photoshoot! So…

Here are a few before and after editing pictures! Before is always first, and I’ll label them, as well.

And lastly I have a fun bonus edit! I was going off of this tutorial, but eventually just added the sparkle/lights in a different way (I think I used the dodge tool, in case you were wondering), because the tutorial’s version of Photoshop didn’t match my version.

DSCN5621playPSedit

Maybe not quite as magical as the tutorial, but I think it turned out pretty fun ☺ .

 

So, what did you think?

Editing really makes a difference, doesn’t it? I hope that you enjoyed the photoshoot, and editing!

Which picture is your favorite? Do you have Photoshop, or edit photos with something else? Any editing suggestions, tips, or critiques?

Would you like to see a post on how I edit (perhaps after I’ve had some more practice 🙂 )?

What other posts would you like to see on Smile and Craft AG?

Thank you for reading and Have a Blessed Day!
