This evening’s post is two-part (I’ll explain the second part after my edits). First of all, you didn’t think I’d miss a week of Branson’s Edit Me Challenge, did you? This week’s SOOC shot is provided by Amber at Amber’s Articles. So far, I’ve seen some gorgeous edits, but I love a good challenge. Here’s her SOOC shot (left):After seeing a few of the other edits for this week’s photo, I decided to take different turn (alright, so I’m completely aware that I take a different turn on every photo – it just seems to easy to...

Me and Alyssa

August 13, 2011
It may be hard to believe, but we were so on the go all weekend long that I didn’t even think to have a formal “portrait session” during Alyssa’s visit. However, I can say that while we were at Frankie’s Fun Park, we did jump in the Photo Booth (on the left…obviously) for a few silly shots. Then, when her dad called to let us know he’d be leaving a little earlier to pick her up, I made sure to get a few more. The shot on the right might be my favorite from the entire weekend.       PS: Ignore my roots…I had my hair colored on Monday so they...
