Photoshop Magic

Whenever someone finds out that I "know" photoshop one of their first questions is about altering photos and what kind of "magic" I can do. I thought I'd share this recent example...

I really wanted a photo of my daughter and my cousins son (they are 4 months apart, my cousin and I are 3 months apart) together, since we don't see them very often. Well as you can probably guess, the two toddlers never did manage to look at the camera at the same time.

Original 5 shots

Best shot of Jillian

Best shot of Milo

Final photo of the two of them. Can you tell that it's 2 pics put together in photoshop?

First Day of School!

Jillian started preschool this week! Such a cutie and so proud of her pony backpack. We went out to lunch after school and when we got home she asked if she could go back to school.

Summer of Fun - August

We celebrated Fipsy's 9th birthday on August 3.

We spent the night in a caboose at Wildlife Prairie State Park in Peoria, IL.

The next night we stayed at Riley's Railhouse in Chesterton, IN, super cool bed and breakfast in a renovated train depot and active rail line across the street.

Beach at Indiana Dunes State Park

We met up with some friends in the chicago area and the girls got to spend the morning together at Pirate's Cove Theme Park - a park designed just for little kids!
