stella's very own photo dump: just cause she is six months old.

i don't claim to be any sort of pro, but it was fun learning how to edit these photos. i stole the idea of making a seamless background using poster board from the paper mama. then when there was a lot of background fixing and editing the awesome linkie lueville gave me a step by step over the phone (which is usually something she'll only do for a select few) and presto! for some reason my flash was all screwed up due to the brightness of the boards hence the noisy photos (and blogger compression doesn't help). enjoy oogling over my six month old ;) quick, you photoshop pros-if i wanted to get rid of the shadow what would be the best/easiest way?

They are so cute! Great job! I set up the board in front of a sliding glass window to get all natural light.

Isn't it so pathetic that this post has been starred in my reader since September 22? I know, I know. Shame.

Well anyway, I still wanted to say a happy six months to your gorgeous little bubby AND that I ADORE that 4th photo down - the B&W one. That is just beautiful.

Hope you're well! x
