I headed down to the pool on Fathers Day to try and snap a couple shots of my husband, Dadding. Throwing kids around in the pool is definitely a Dad thing. These moments are fleeting, which is why I am grateful to be a photographer. One day she is going to be way too cool to be thrown around the pool, it's going to be embarrassing for Dad to even be there. While the children won't keep, the photographs will.
I used one of our Free Actions, Photo Refresh on this image. Here is the before and after:
Photo Refresh is everything you need to clean up an image, plus there is an optional warmth layer, to warm things up. The hazy sunlight in the left of the image is something new I have up my sleeve for you. More on that later this week/next week.
If you are a Dad, I hope you had a wonderful Fathers Day. I hope you did all the Dad things, and I hope that someone snapped a few pics for you to remember this fleeting time.
P.S. I know it's weird that my husbands face is hidden. It's what we have to do. Thank you for understanding.
Four months ago, our littlest farm boy made his arrival. He was smaller than we imagined he would be, but so so so cute.
He has a beautiful disposition, and is already giving us glimpses of his little personality. I took a couple of weeks off but have gotten back to work in the last few days. He was born just after Valentine's Day and everything got put on hold these last few weeks. I'm not putting too much pressure on myself but I promised myself this time that I wouldn't slow down and so far I have been able to strap him into a carrier and carry on with my responsibilities. It helps that he is such a good baby, he is up for anything as long as he is snuggled up to me.
I'm not saying that I'm getting things done quickly, it took me 5 weeks to take these pictures, and another week to sit down and edit them. For me, these are the perfect newborn photos. While posed newborn photos are beautiful to look at, and seem fun to style- I prefer real life, real moments...real memories.
I love the way he sleeps. It's the best to me. I just want to remember those little things, because it's easy to forget. Really easy.
