Snapshots From A Mom: Series Seven

Happy Monday!
Today's post is short and sweet!  The photo I choose is dear to my heart.  I love to catch unexpected moments on my camera.  This photo was taken six years ago when little M was a baby.  We were on a boat ride with my sister-in-law ( I adore her).  The sunlight floods the two of them and almost makes them into silhouettes.  I edited this photo in Photoshop.  I used the Adjustment Curves to pull out the light and Gaussian Blur to soften the over all image.  Before I flatted the image I made the image Mode into a Duotone. With the little editing I did I was able to make a nice keepsake photo for the family album.
Have a great week!

Totally sweet photo. I love those kinds of pictures. They look so innocent and just a image of life, nothing posed. Visiting from Comment Hour on SITS.
