Princeton University – What a great location for a photo shoot! I had a great time exploring this area especially since it was a location special to this family. Kids had a great time and there was lots of places to run around without the crowds since the students were gone.

Kids get up early and so did we. We had an early start time which really helped with the heat of the day and gave us beautiful light. I couldn’t be more pleased with how these turned out. This family has a lot of love for each other and it shows here! xoxo

Styled Photo shoots

I assisted Shooting Star Photography with styled shoots recently and it inspired me to start thinking about offering stylized shoots.  I was even able to grab a few shots of the girls. The girls had so much fun getting dressed up, as I think most girls would. The location could not have been better, which was a private farm. While I can’t offer that, we will do our best to find a location with great light.

I have various sizes in dresses now available. Stay tuned for some new photos!

How to Fix Green Skin Tones in Photoshop

If you aren’t using off camera flash for your outdoor sessions, you will probably end up with green tones on the skin. In this example, I was squeezing in a few more shots at the end of a session and I did not have my flash ready. The light was good so I knew I could fix it later.

If you are noticing green skin tones, you have a trained eye and probably know some advanced techniques in photoshop. So I won’t be going into how to create a layer, etc.

Here is the before image after some basic Camera Raw adjustments.

Basic-Edit

The skin has some green tones and I like to fix them in photoshop so I can have more control. There are two steps to fixing green skin.

The trusty curve.

The first is a curve. Simply, create a curve layer and lower the mid tones of the green channel. You can mask off the background, but in this case the green was really rich so I did not need to do that. A slight adjustment goes a long way.

Hue Saturation Layer

While the curve did great as an adjustment, there are still green patches in the darker areas. More can still be done.

Create a Hue/Saturation Layer

1. Select the yellow option

2. Slide the Hue slider all the way to the left so you can see the colors you are selecting.

3. Next, you can narrow the selection of color further by moving these sliders as shown below.

Now you should only have the parts that appear greenish selected. Toggle the layer on and off to see if you have a good selection.

4. Now shift the hue back towards the center until the skin looks even.

Final step to fix green skin

 

Before and After. Very slight adjustments that make a big difference!

Last Fall, I attended the Click Away conference and had the opportunity to meet Ali Peck of Glow Portraits. She is the best maternity photographer I’ve ever seen and inspired me to try out some studio maternity shots. Katie had a newborn session booked so I recruited her to test out what I learned. We set up in my dining room, sent my husband out for the day, and made some really amazing images.

I love these two images. One reminds me of the got milk campaign years ago. I wish I had thought of that at the time. It would have been super fun and cute.

This next image just reminds me how beautiful and amazing it is to be pregnant and grow a new person inside of you. Not having children of my own, I am amazed each time I meet someone who is pregnant and then get to meet their little creation.

I really loved creating these images. Right now, they are under promotional pricing. So if you are thinking of doing studio maternity photos and live in the Haddonfield or Cherry Hill area, contact me soon!
