More "M" Sunset Beauty...

First off I apologize, blogger is driving me nuts today, so for all of you who have me linked up to get my feeds whenever I publish, you are getting a ton of publishing today. SORRY. Eventually I will get this to look right on here...LOL

Okay...onto the post, hopefully...
When "M" and I talked about her senior pics, one of the things I loved is that she was very familiar with my style of photography and really wanted me to create some beautiful pieces of art. She knew I used lots of different post processing and wanted her senior pics to have that rather than just the typical color portraits. These ones were a perfect opportunity to use some different post processing and textures on. Also one of the requests that she had was for me to incorporate pink balloons in her session...I was very excited to do this for a senior session. I've used them many times in children's sessions, but this was a first for a senior session.

Here are a couple of the balloon ones from the end of the session, we took these at sunset, as well as a sunset picture in the gorgeous sunflower field.

I think these really reflect moving on as a graduate. I love that we released the balloons at the end of the session...

Letting go of childhood....and moving on to a new chapter in her life...
(but I hope you never let go of your inner child my dear :)

And this....how gorgeous is this. I wish these sunflowers were available every year for senior pics!!

Okay...for all you photogs who frequent my blog...I have to give my friend and fellow photog a plug right here. As I said I use lots of different textures on my images. Some are my own, and I also have textures from many different photogs, but Nadia Smith of Inspired Images by Nadia has her textures on sale right now and I also love hers. The texture used on these images is called "Soul-full" from her Heartography line. I think it's my favorite texture of hers and I use it often . So if you have not checked out her textures...do so :)

And don't forget....specials are still running for the launch of the new website. Check out the post titled "new website" on the blog for details!!
