Welcome to Tutorial Tuesday! Sarah of Naptime Momtog and I will be bringing you a new challenge every week, to stretch your shooting and editing skills. This week, I’d like to present to you what I think is a fairly quick and easy change…at least once you know how to do it – changing the color of your background.Actually, let me not limit this tutorial only to backgrounds. I’ve used this approach to change part of an image such as a door or shirt color, in addition to changing an entire background. The approach we’re using can also be replicated in either...

My twin cousins, Emily and Erin. have grown up. In fact, they will be graduating next weekend (Mother’s Day) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with degrees in Education.Over the Christmas holiday, I offered to take their graduation portraits. And can you believe it…they took me up on my offer! So, I met up with this past Sunday for a complete tour of campus. Interestingly enough, earlier in the day, my husband asked if I wanted to hit the gym with him before I met up with my cousins. Although tempting (ha ha, who am I kidding), I decided that I would...
