before & after blog hop

My before & after for this week!  (Click the button above to see more or to add your photo!

Here’s my edit.  I used photoshop cs4, and found that I didn’t have to do a lot.  I fixed the color balance a bit, bumped the saturation, and was really happy.  I realized the awesomeness of this reflection in these windows at the end of the shoot and was so excited!  And I love doing maternity photos anyway.  Their little boy was born only a week later!


  1. Gorgeous!! Yea, I love the reflection as well. WOW!!
