Family Portraits: The Johnston's

A good friend of mine asked me to take some pictures of her and her beautiful family. I do LOVE playing Photographer!!!!

A wrench was thrown into my photo editing since we got the iMac for Christmas. With no more PC in the house, I discovered that Corel products are not made for Macs-- boo!! So I uploaded a 30 day free trail of the cheaper version of Adobe Photoshop to see if it would suit my needs. It totally does! I'm thrilled that I don't have to start saving for the $600 out of reach Photoshop CS4 and that the $80 Photoshop Elements 8 is just what I was hoping for!!!

Here are a few of my fav's!

Chey, you are amazing! You are really good at capturing faces. The last one of the little girl is beautiful.

They all look great! I like the back lighting in the first one and the last one of the little girl is precious. Good job!

I love them all... my favs are the sister/brother shot and the effect of the red roses in the 2 shots you used them. All are good professional quality pics!!!
