As you can see, she is really growing up. I was watching her play the other day and she does so much now. She climbs up on her little slide by herself and her feet even touch the ground when she sits in her little plastic chair! I liked this photo of her because you can see some of her little razor-sharp teeth and she is looking at the camera with a smile on her face. I brought the photo into camera raw and made a few adjustments. Then in Photoshop, I did a levels adjustment so the colors would pop. The biggest thing I did was crop it so she is at one side of the image. This looks much better than her being centered. What is she going to think of her new brother Ian coming in December? Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!



A Young Boy’s Portrait

Posted in Huntington Beach, Photography by Bridget Casas on July 13, 2009

Young Nate is a very active two year old. I caught this one moment of quiet as he was watching his mother shake some dirt out of his shoes. Doesn’t he have a very sweet little face? It was fun taking photos of him and chasing him around the park. I did get my exercise that day! I have taken photos of dogs at the park that were easier to photograph than little Nate! It has been a while since I have chased around a two year old.


Master Nate Powell, two years old…

I was working on the new computer today attempting to load a bunch of software. I didn’t get very far! I was having trouble with Illustrator and Fireworks, and now I can’t find my MS Office software. I guess I will have to do some searching. I know it is here somewhere! The weather is getting warmer, very summery. We have a couple of fans on in the house. It really makes a difference. We watched The Changeling last night – a very good movie, and sad!
