hail to photoshop

i was talking to my sister on the phone and she commented on the great pictures of bailey's concert. {insert my laughing and a 'thanks!' here.}

*behind the scenes*
to skip the lengthy description, read on to the end.
the recital night was a bit crazy. bailey got so nervous, she said she wasn't going, i had to bribe alex to wear shoes- and underwear for that matter. adam had a blowout before we left.

but, we made it there. then, as i got adam out of the car, i smelled that he'd done it again. as soon as we met with garrett, i handed adam to him, so i could take pictures. gar took a whiff and just looked at me. of course i left the house without a diaper! so gar wanted to turn around and leave. right then. i said i would hold adam for the 15 min. concert- away from others, if gar could just take some shots.
*behind the scenes end*

this is how it looked, straight outta the camera.
photoshop is the answer to less-than-stellar photos. (and great ones too) i used a couple of
actions, cropped, then vignetted the edges. { i merged the skirt of the 4th pic with the 3rd pic.} see previous post for finished product.

Isn't that always the way it goes... no matter how early I leave or how prepared I think I am, something happens! She looks beautiful. Yeah, for LPM!

OMGosh!!! You are SO amazing with PS, Amy. I love looking at the photos-- the befores and then the afters! TOTALLY and INCREDIBLY AWESOME!! You are one talented little chick. Can't believe you attached the rest of the dress on to the other photos. That was the first thing I noticed-- "Hey-- where is the pic of Bailey looking at her trophy. But ya gotta do what ya gotta do to sieze (freeze)the moment on film -- or better said, on chip . . . .or hard drive or sunthin'.
