JC - Originals Photography


Hello and welcome to my blog!

This is where I share sneak peeks with my clients and tidbits of my family through photography. I'm very blessed to be doing what I've always wanted to do... stay at home with my 3 beautiful children and photograph those around me; all with the support of my loving husband. In the meantime, sit back, relax and enjoy a little bit of us and my photography! Oh and I love comments... Let me know you're reading and what you like about it!

I ran across this image today while searching for some family pics and thought I'd share... I didn't take this picture, a friend did... Originally he sent me a smaller file (easier to email) and I did a little editing to it... ETA: Well, after posting this last night he sent me a larger file, but I haven't edited it yet. I'll re-post the new pic once I get it edited. In the meantime you can still see the smaller file one.

I love little Haidyn's expression here... It's so her. And let me tell you, if you ever want to know what she has eaten that day or drank, just look at her mouth... She is always wearing it!

Maybe I should send it in to Welch's and let them use it for advertising... Well, not really, since I didn't take it... But you know what I mean.

Oh and something I learned recently... Since I started using RAW, I am loving it... Well, I never knew it, but with CS3 and ACR, even if you took the picture in JPEG mode, you can open it in ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) and tweak the exposure (as if it was a RAW image) and then open it in CS3 and finish the editing there. Not too shabby! Now, I don't think you have all the flexibility as you do in RAW, but you can still fix things if need be. So with that said... I did a little tweaking to this image too and it made my editing so much easier!

One more thing... I went ahead and edited the larger file and I'm just not liking the results. I think because I originally did it on the smaller file, the results were more dramatic... Almost like a painting. I'll keep working on it and be back later if I can get it to work right!

Okay, this ended being longer than expected for one little pic, but oh well... We've had the sickies at our house and I'm feeling a little cooped up. Guess I just needed to 'talk' more than anything!

Her blue eyes look beautiful in this picture! I had fun seeing the girls at the game on Friday night - they are so sweet! Now I can't decide if I want a boy or a girl.....LOL Glad that I'm not the one having to decide!! :) Hope everyone is feeling better.
