When I first began photography back in 2011 I went crazy experimenting with editing styles! I added different presets on every other photo -you'd never think that they were all from photo session! A little Sepia here, black and white with a splash of color there, oh and you can't forget about those vintage presets! Oh Lawdy! It took me a year to get that out of my system and find my groove. At the end of the day the style that never got old to me was the fresh clean crisp look. Which I now refer to as my "Modern" style, it's bright with warm vibrant colors! That has been my go to look for the last 4 years, but lately Ive been having a wondering eye...
... for FILM!!!! Oh sweet film how I love thee and all that you do! You and your soft melts of pastel colors that goosh romance!!! So dreamy! Why do you have to be so doggone expensive! Man! I'd have to sell my first born child just to be able to buy a nice film camera and all of your pretty little rolls to just keep my business afloat until I built a clientele that would want to make that type of investment! Holy Cow you are too fancy! ... I digress!
So low and behold I introduce to you the next best thing... the ever so glorious "digital" film!!! Awwwww!!!! I can say that I have come to like it just as much as I like the vibrant "modern" look! But I can't bring myself to completely transform, sooooo instead I thought "hey, why not give my wonderful clients the options of both and they can select the one that they like the most!?!" Ding! Ding! Ding! we have a winner!!!! This new editing style will be called "Timeless" because its extremely similar to that classic look of film that never goes out of style. And if you don't like either than go ahead and skedaddle lol!
If you visit my WEDDING Gallery page you can view the two different slideshows of the new style options. Below are a few examples of what you'll see...
My Jack Jordan just turned 7 years old!!! Holy cow that went by fast! And I can't believe my baby Maxx will be 3 years in only 2 more months! Glad I got to snap a few fall photos of my little bubbs! I love the first picture because this is our reality ~its not always all giggles haha! Maxx had just woke up from his nap and he needed a minute to get warmed up. He's so cute when he cries!
I swear I dont curl his hair -its just that FABULOUS!!! Im really going to cry when we have to cut it!
OMG Those smiles!!!
I often wonder how we got so lucky with these little goofy stud muffins! My heart is full!
