KINDIA'S BIG 2nd BIRTHDAY











Kindia. What a beautiful Name. I will have to ask her mother what it means. Last year I had the pleasure of photographing her and her sister for their first birthdays. I loved the images so much, We used them all year for our marketing and promotional material. I CANNOT believe it has been a whole year! It was nice to do a morning session for a change. She's an early sleeper and the best thing anyone can do is work around a two year old and their schedule.  I LOVE how all her pictures turned out. Thank you Jodi for thinking of me again on her special day....I can hardly wait for lil' sis!

Omi,

I love them!!! Thanks so much! I've been telling everybody what a great experience it was. Normally, pictures with her are a nightmare. Thanks! I belong to an adoption chat group. We all share pictures. I gave them your website and told them to check it out. I know they'll all love them. Word of mouth is the best advertisement.

Thanks! See you tomorrow to pick up the pictures. Can I get two cd's? I'll pay extra. I want to give one to her birth mom.

Thanks again! You're talented!
Jodi

I love the color in all the images, my faviorat is the last one, if you are using an action on that one I would love to know were to get it. amazing work.

Holladay photo, Thanks so much. The action that I used on that one is "Grandmas Tap Shoes", by the Boutwells. It's on their Revenge set (number 2) @ 70 % I think. Its also on the 4th story board down, with her opening the door. I also ran CANOWHOOP@#$! over the bottom one. and the then moved the opacity down to 50% or so to get the a little more debth (it's a sharpener...its sort of the Boutwells version of Magic Sharp. Its nice, but super strong at 100%, U can mask layer it and just brush in the soft areas or "control i" it. Let me know it that helped you at all! Omi Oh...and I adjusted the curve balance just for fun.
