how do you take a color sample and apply it in a layer? I'm attempting to copy this technique and have followed the youtube video...now i'm wondering how to recolor it?

First get a new layer.
Then, get your eye dropper tool. Click a section of the photo you want to use for its color. Click the paint bucket tool.
Then click the photo. It will fill with the color you've selected.
Then on the layer palette, select screen as the layer mode.
Then adjust opacity to your liking.

Wow, she's such a beautiful girl! This picture is absolutely amazing...everything about it is right on. I love the sharpness, color, everything. This is the exact look I hope to achieve in the future. Did you do anything different besides fixing the basics in ACR and sharpening the the hair/face in PS?

Thanks! This one was pretty close SOOC... and you are pretty close.

I did my usual sharpening, eye brightening and skin tone adjustments with a curves layer. Then I used a color balance layer to add some blues to the shadows and adjust the colors to what looked good to me. Then I burned the background slightly to bring Ry out a little.

Here is a comparison of OOC and finished.

SOOC:

Hope you can see the difference. I usually keep a subtle editing style.

The difference between the two pics is very obvious even though you didnt do much in PP. That's what makes you such an amazing photographer...you know exactly what to do and you do it beautifully. I know your "usual sharpening" includes sharpening the face, hair, brighten eyes, teeth but looking at the edited version, it looks like Ry's whole body is sharpened. Was this done w/ the sharpening tool in PS. When I use this tool for some reason, it looks very harsh and not soft like this at all. I loved how you burned the background because to me, it really separates the OOC pic and edited pic. Going to youtube that right now. =)

Thanks 85! I use a high pass layer as a mask to "paint in" the areas I want sharpened. Then I can adjust the opacity of the layer to get it juuuuust right. I have an action I created called "spot sharpening".

I took these tonight after dinner. The restaurant we frequently visit has a bunch of waitresses that fell in love with Ry. We have been going since before she was born. Every time we pay at the register Ry gets a sucker. We stopped at the park after dinner while she was still working on her snack.

Love the pictures! I really like soft look in the first one and the slight color tint in the second.

Thanks everyone! I've picked up my camera probably a total of 3 times since Rylin's birthday... Ive been really busy with work and getting the Aivan Lane's bedroom done its been hard to be creative. Here are a few shots Ive got when I did shoot. The bottom shot is from our walk tonight. It is probably one of my favorites.

Great pics, as usual! The post processing on this one really caught my eye, do you mind sharing what you did to it?
