My poor Emma, my usually willing, ever-present model. Today she was not quite as willing to put up with my snapping away. This is what Emma wanted to be doing instead of letting me take her photo. (phone and IPod)
A little bribery worked to some extent so I’m going to post the shots I got . As you can see, I’ve got to work on not chopping her limbs off in photos but her limbs are just so darn long…they keep sneaking out of the frame! =)

Tomorrow I’m going to order a new gallery wrapped canvas from Canvas On Demand Pro and they have a great way to show you what your canvas will look like, the Canvasizer. Here are the ones I am considering for a 20x24” canvas…which would you pick?
Oh and wouldn’t this one of little Ashlyn look beautiful as a canvas!?

Innocent wonder? When I saw this week’s theme, I knew I had the perfect photo for it! This is Miss Ashlyn Jade who is all of ten pounds and three months old. When I was taking her photos, I quickly learned that Ashlyn is absolutely in love with her hands! She stares at them with….get ready for it….Innocent Wonder! =)
Join us at I Heart Faces for more Innocent Wonder.

Yesterday, my oldest daughter wasn’t feeling well so I kept Audrey. Do you know what that means? Lots of time to take photos of the prettiest grandbaby in the world! Now Audrey is the smilingest baby your ever met but when I got my camera out… the smile pretty much evaporated. She often just looked at me like I was insane! Either way, I’m so in love with these photos and so in love with Miss Audrey!
More photos to follow soon!

I had the worst time finding a photo for this week’s challenge. I only got one real keeper from the photo shoot I did of Emma the other day and I’d already posted that all over my blog. My goal this year is to try to take current photos for the challenges so I’m going to have to use that one photo. I decided to re-edit and re-crop it, just to come up with something a little different. Here’s my Winter Wonderland photo!
I did try to salvage a few other photos from this day but I tell…shooting in the snow is hard! I may try again today if it’s not freezing! Here’s a link to the two runner-up photos for this challenge. http://candacesoon.blogspot.com/2011/01/more-emma-snow-photos.html

I had the brilliant idea that Emma should wear a flowing red dress with a red scarf and stand out in the snow…the wind blowing her hair, dress and scarf. Sounds good but it really didn’t work out. It was way too cold to catch this idea on film! Only one photo turned out half way decent so I didn’t have much to edit from this failed shoot…so I decided to play with this one pic and try some different actions on it. I haven’t played with actions in a while so it was fun!
Here’s the SOOC camera photo, not so great, huh?
And here’s my clean edit, cropped, with a nice pop. I’d say this would be my final image if I was going to have one printed.
So, which edit do you like? I’d love to hear anyone’s opinions!
