Teacher Gifts

As the school year comes to an end, what better way to honor your child's teacher than with a 4x6 or 5x7 unique photo thank you card! This is a special keepsake that your child's teacher can keep for years to come. Contact me at for more information. I made this for my son's kindergarten teacher as a 5x7 and it printed and framed beautifully.

Basic Editing and Enhancing

I had the most fun working on a project for a client today (thank you so much, Kristin!) who wanted some basic editing some on some photos of her daughter. I wanted to take the editing a step further and also add a little enhancing with some actions and textures that I've recently acquired. We were both very pleased with the result. Here is my favorite of the day and there are a few others posted on the Restoration/Retouching tab.



I fixed lighting, exposure, shadows, levels, curves, reduced noise, added a slight eye pop, added lens glare, used My4Hens Watermelon Blues and Paint the Moon Sea Delight actions, added texture from Tassiesim on Flickr, then erased texture from face and hands.

Thanks for looking!
