What is an Edited Photograph?

Often this question arises in our studio. Do we sell digital images? Yes, of course we sell digital images that are “edited”. What is an edited photograph? We thought we would post some examples of our recent senior “Amanda”. Amanda is beautiful even in her before photographs, however if you were Amanda’s parents would you rather purchase her “before” edited portraits or her “after” portraits?

We spend approximately 20 minutes per each post production image to bring out the best in you and make your digital images all they can be. This is why we are proud of our quality images and why it is worth it for you to purchase professional portraits.

In Amanda’s after photograph among many other edits, we opened her left eye and whitened her eyes a bit.

I love this pose for seniors. The color enhancement just makes this portrait so beautiful.

Amanda looks beautiful in any color she wears. This photograph we softened Amanda’s skin, whitened her eyes and teeth a bit and I just love how the colors pop.

Among other edits in this portrait we thought Amanda’s dress was a little full so we thinned it a little bit. Our senior girls always look great with a hand on the hip and a little sass.

Enhanced the color, smoothed skin, sharpened lashes, whitened teeth

I love how this portrait shows off Amanda’s beautiful eye lashes and her beautiful hair. We softened her look here which really added to her beauty.

Riley Turns 2 | Baby #2

Riley, recently had his 2nd birthday and we had so much fun playing together in a near by field at their beautiful ranch. At two he loves reading books, watching curious George and being a little cowhand, helping his Papa with all kinds of ranch chores. Riley’s little world is about to change when he will meet his baby brother in just a few short months. I can’t wait to get back out to the ranch and document this families new little miracle arriving soon and to see Riley of course.
