A mini session with Gracie....

First off.....here's the link so you can download my action for all you guys that have asked about it. =)

Brenda's B/W Action

I had a little mini session with Gracie Bug and I just let her be her own goofy self...I didn't give her any direction and I honestly like what I got better than when I do give her some pointers. It's just so her.....loopiness and all! LOL!! It's nice to have photos like this so I can look back and remember her at this age. I know if I show her these when she's 14, she'll want me to burn them. LOL!!

WARNING....an overload of photos! =)

These are fabulous. I love them both in color and bw. The background certainly helps to pop your subject. I need to try this.

You are lucky to have such a fun subject. She is adorable.

THANKS so much for the link to your action. I can't wait to try it this weekend!!

I love these new photos of Gracie. The monster face ones are priceless...but my favorite is definitely the one of her looking down. Love it!

PS My daughter has that same dress...the photos of Gracie always remind me so much of my daughter's personality (she's the same age).

Very, very cute & so "Gracie"...LOL

The last one of her reminds me of my 4yr old DS when she does the armpit thing & makes a funny nose w/ his mouth.

You know what I mean, right? LOL

I'm sure Gracie would never do that though. :)

You guys are so welecome! =)

She is a character that's for sure...she keeps me on my toes but sometimes she makes me want to bang my head into a wall too. LOL!!

Oh, when you download the action, you can choose where you want it sent too. I have an Action folder in My Documents that I load them there. That way they are all in one place. =)

I have three photos from a photobooth shoot when I was about 7 or 8... i am pulling faces and being silly (not unlike here). I love them so much - i have just used the photos of me (cropped out my sister.LOL) on my 30th birthday invites. She might hate them at 14 but she will love them at 25.

Me again. Checked out babystyle.com looking for the wall art. Love the flowers, and wanted to see the others you mentioned. I only found baby animals. Did I miss them somehow?
