Let me start off by saying that this was one of my most fun sessions I've done yet.  These guys are loads of fun and had me laughing the whole time.  For one I wanted to see how far they would go and at this location there was a working outhouse.  I totally made him get into it and peak out of it.  LOL he was such a sport and totally hilarious!  At the end I told him now we have to be cheesy and use the umbrella and just look at what he done.  I also shot their newborn photos and working on those to get them ready asap!

Pink Warmth LR Preset | Chattanooga Portrait Photographer

So finally I have the time to get freebie friday's back up and going.  I just decided this earlier this week so I didn't have much time to come up with some cool template or what not.  So I have you a lightroom Preset that I just created and well I think it's perfect for summer.  For those that are new to presets just remember that presets don't work with every photo as soon as you apply it.  This means you might have to adjust it to suit your photo.  Since everyone of us have different results straight out of the camera.  I am showing three examples the first example was taken at sunset, the second example was taken on an overcast day, and the third example was taken at in the morning on a very sunny day in the shade.  Enjoy!

If you are still looking check out these kids back in October and now and see how much they changed so cool!  

Some of you loyal blog readers may remember the first birthday hat a few month's back from their cousin's session.  Check them out aren't they just adorable!!!
