Awesome!! I absolutely love this color. Your stuff is always wonderful. I have never posted here before but I saw you first at ILP. I have really learned a lot from you and I love your work. I just love the funk in these. You have definitely inspired me. When my daughter wakes up, to the bed we will go. (her room is green too:)

The photos are really great. Love the green color room. My dd has a green room as well. Would you mind sharing your settings for the photos of Gracie jumping? Love how sharp the whole scene is.

The las one is my favorite. Beautiful.

Thanks Suzanne, Jennifer, Tori, Lulu, Frederique, Nadia, Maggie and Clair!

Yeppers...LOVE me some vingette! =)

Indoors, I shoot in manual. I never let my shutters fall below 1/125 because I can get camera shake if I do. I just take some test shots at where I want my f-stop at and I ajust my ISO accordingly. =) Check your histogram can be your best friend. =)

Julie...awww, thank you! Yep, Sam is getting bigger....she still hates my camera though! LOL!!

Michelle....LOL! You nut! Thanks sweetie! =)

I owe you Tina! =)! It's very tweakable! I'm off to check out your blog! =)

At They have 3 different versions you can get. We have the flower and fairies, they also have a vintage collection and an animal collection. =)

Melissa...thanks sweetie! I'm planning on playing this weekend with yours....I LOVE them! I'll post them when I'm done. =)

Thank you so much Candice....I want to see them! =)

Amy...thanks sweetie! My settings were 1/200, 1.4 (scary) and ISO at 400. =)

Talia..thank you! I'll post the SOOC and my steps for you guys are are interested...give me a couple of days but I'll definitely do it. =) The glow is a vingette around her. =)
