Such Beauty

I'd like to think I had a small hand in her beauty and charm but not sure any of it came from me except for those exception green eyes. She has her dad's smile and nose and his gift for gab. She doesn't know a stranger and would give you the shirt off her back even through she didn't have one to replace it with. She is 100% devoted to her son and I hope he realizes how lucky he is to have her. I am blessed to have been given the job of being her mom, even through I failed to fulfill that position properly. I hope she knows she is the love of my life!

This was taken on Christmas morning at her house. Her sweater kind of clashed with the lights so I toned it down to a bit of sepia. I need your honest opinion here.....I softened her skin and sharpened her eyes and hair but want to know if I over did it....I hate seeing photos where the skin looks fake. Is it too much?

This was not the post I was going to do....the one I did yesterday was of snow so I posted it to PP instead. LOL...
Pin It!


  1. DANG IT! It looked much better in PS then it does here!

  2. I think it is a little to smooth but I'm far from being an expert. What did you use?
    I think it is a very good image of your daughter.
    You could have posted snow. It has snowed here for the last 2 days.

  3. Loved your post to PP of the snow covered courty lane.
    Great shot. You should post it here.

  4. It is splotchy on my screen when I click on the image to see it larger. Has a color cast that isn't there in PS too. I'll tone the blur down a bit more. I thought it looked a little over done too. Is the hair and eyes too sharp?
    The image I posted to PP was the one I was going to post here but didn't want you to have to see another snow photo. I'll post it now.

  5. Forgot to tell you...I just used a blur filter and then layer mask to remove some of it.
