9 Month Baby Portraits | Photo editing and retouching

I used to dread the editing and retouching part of photography.   When I went to college for photography it was pretty much all film (yeah, I’m older than you think I am, haha!) so retouching in Photoshop wasn’t a thing.  However, over the years I have really begun to enjoy it.  It’s fun to see an already awesome shot and then make it better!  This is something I recently added to my resume… retouching for other photographers (weddings, real estate, portraits, you name it!).

This shot is one that I took last weekend of my baby girl.  I’ve been dying to try out this spot…I pass it a few times every week when I take my kiddos for a walk/hike.  Since moving to Kentucky this has definitely become one of my absolute favorite areas…Buttermilk Falls.  The lighting, the trees, foilage, …swoon!

I didn’t shoot this image with this retouching in mind, but I love the soft, dreamy, fantasy feel to it.

So here is my before and after…

Happy Dreaming,

Alison

*Just restating…I’m working on getting a new website up, which is why for now when you type in http://www.alisonbeyerphotography.com, it comes here to my blog. So just a heads up! Bear with me while I work on it.  This is motivating me to get working on my blog more though! 😉
