Apparently, I need to dust off my camera and go shooting again...

...because I've been editing (or in some cases, re-editing) old images. Ahh - trying to find the time to get out and do something fun!

Anyhow, here are some images that I've done recently that I like and thought I'd share. They are totally random - no rhyme or reason, just random work.

1 First up is a gem I totally overlooked from last fall of my now 15mo old baby boy. He was 5 months old here. Look at the cute grin! I can't believe I passed this one up when I edited this shoot.

2 This is an old favorite. This was taken in May of 2010 of my now 6 year old daughter just before her 2nd birthday. She has always had these huge, expressive eyes and wispy fly away hair. She reminds me of a little pixie or fairy. I LOVE this image of her, but my original edit left a lot to be desired. There was no tonal range - just one big glowing blob. It needed to be dusted off and re-done - so here is the re-edit.

3 This is a gem I totally overlooked from one of my spring sessions. I kept going back to it when I originally edited these, but there was so much about the SOOC that bugged me that I never took on the challenge of editing it. I'll post the before and after in the comments so you can see. Anyways, always a favorite little girl to work with - Miss Jillien.

4 This is an old image from January. This is also an interesting composite. I'll share the before and after of this as well in the comments. People have asked why we did not just sit him in the wagon to make life easier, but here is the reason. We tried that at first. At this time, he had NO fear of heights. He wanted to grab the little pebbles in the road and actually dove for one (Dad was spotting and saved him from a face plant in the road). From that point on, he sat directly on the ground. RE the safety issues - this is a pretty much deserted country road. We were there for an hour and one car passed. You can see for miles in either direction. I would never put my baby in danger. I hate having to put up dumb disclaimers, but someone ALWAYS has to say something.

Lisa,

I have followed your posts here and on Fred Miranda's site. You are truly a gifted photographer and artist. Perhaps a question if you don't' mind. Do you get many keepers SOOC or do you edit everything? Your editing skills are remarkable. I find myself just fumbling around in Lightroom 5. :)

Thank you guys.

John, my images are all edited to some degree - most much less than the ones I shared in this thread. Composite images are obviously going to be more work/editing involved as in the pic of my son in the wagon. Most of my images are close to being perfect SOOC. Here's an example of a more typical edit from me:

Thanks for the quick response. Does your 70-200 collect dust on your shelf now that you have that 200L? :)

These are gorgeous images. You take real life and give it an ethereal, warm lift. Your pictures have a dream like quality to them.

Lisa, you have a great eye for both photography and for editing. The two combined result in extraordinary images. Always a great pleasure seeing your work and very generous to show how some of your beautiful images started life (SOOC).

Beautiful work.
