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! 😉

Family on the Boat | Family Portraits

Well, whether we are ready or not, fall is around the corner.  Before yesterday, our area of Kentucky was in a drought.  I have noticed many of the trees turning colors and dying too early due to the dry weather!  Nooo…that’s the best part of the fall is the fall foilage!

Anyway, I am looking over my fall calendar today and gearing up for family portraits before the holidays.  If you are in SWFL, I’ll be making a quick trip back and would love to set something up with you!  Shoot me a text or email (info below). 🙂

Kentuckians, I’ll be here with some great location and portrait ideas. Give me a shout and we’ll get planning!

Need some ideas for your family portraits?  I loved this family’s prop idea…we took them at the marina where they have their boat.  Fun over-sized prop!

*Sidenote: Just wanted to say again, I’m still 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.

Happy Almost-Everything-Pumpkin Season!

Lyndsey + Samuel, A Church Wedding

I finished up this couple’s album a few months back and still haven’t gotten around to putting the rest of their photos up here!  So here they are…a nice little collage of their wedding day. 🙂

Valerie + Erik, Kentucky Wedding

Spring is just around the corner, and so is wedding season, my favorite!  I’m definitely ready for some beautiful green scenery and wedding bouquets.

I photographed this wedding last fall, finally getting the rest of the images up here.  Such a lovely wedding in Brandenburg, Kentucky at the Southern Grace Bed and Breakfast.  Enjoy the rest of these, and happy planning to all you new brides out there!

Cheers,

Alison

Valerie + Erik, A Kentucky Wedding

What a perfect southern September wedding this last Saturday here in Kentucky!  I loved the opportunity to photograph this sweet couple’s wedding at the Southern Grace Bed and Breakfast.  Lovely couple, gorgeous backdrops…a wedding photographer’s dream (swoon!).

Here’s a couple of my favs with more to come soon…

Congratulations Valerie and Erik!

Cheers,

Alison 🙂

Carol + Bill, Ranch Wedding

I can’t gush about this wedding enough!  Everything was absolutely gorgeous!  I was so excited I got to travel back to Wyoming for this beautiful wedding day.  It was at the UXU Ranch near Yellowstone/Cody Wyoming.  There’s nothing quite like a country ranch wedding.

So here is a little peek at a few photos with more to come.  Congratulations to this happy couple!

Starting with one of my favorites… 🙂

And everyone got a chance to congratulate the newlyweds, even the horses 😉   

Wyoming Family Portraits | Alison Beyer Photography

I can’t believe we are already in October, what happened to the summer?!  So now the craziness really begins…holidays are right around the corner!  But as our schedules pick up, don’t forget to get your family portraits taken.  Those little kiddos change and grow so fast, you definitely want to capture those precious moments before they are off to college (in a blink!).

I got to photograph this beautiful family while they were out here on vacation/family visit.  A special time too, since the kiddos were both celebrating birthdays (turning three and one).  They were such a blast, the sweet girl so adorable with her little poses and the little guy really great at smashing cupcakes!

So here are a few of my favorites… 🙂

1a2a 34 5a 6a 78 10 11 12Fall is flying by fast!  To book your session feel free to email or call me!  I’ll be in SWFL October 27-November 6 for fall portrait sessions!

Happy Fall,

🙂 Alison
