i should be in bed..

but i'm nursing ashton so i will share this with you.

this is why i believe anyone who wants awesome pictures should shoot in RAW and own LIGHTROOM (a digital blackroom for digital raw images) and PHOTOSHOP. look at what it can do!

  1. youre a smarty pants! thank you for teaching me! i love that cry baby face!

  2. i came back to see his tiny sad mouth again. i loves him.

  3. Wow! This is amazing! What do you mean by shooting RAW? Do you just purchase Lightroom from Adobe's website? Do you need both Lightroom and Photoshop? I was about to purchase Sesame Ellis' actions/presets until I realized I only have Photoshop Elements...I want to be sure I get all the necessary software! Your pics look awesome! I would love to have mine look this great! Thanks!

  4. I am so happy that you decided to share this with us. I have been wanting to learn how to make pictures look like this. I am in a slump right now with my photography, because my "real" job is beating me up right now, lol. I work at a school and the year is coming to a close, and so we have been busy, but On the that a different program??? I use PSE 7.0 and I didnt know if i could do that to my pictures with that program. I am wanting to start taking pictures of babies. I just have so much i need to learn. THank you again for sharing your lil secret :)

  5. Some of your photos say they are unavailable. I'd love to see them! You do a great job!
