Baby Nicholas’ photo shoot

I stole my neighbors baby to use as a subject for my growing photography hobby and got about five minutes in with him before he started screaming his head off! (this may have been due to me shoving a cute little beanie on his tiny head, lesson learned!) I decided not only would it be a great way to practice my photography, but also to play around with Photoshop and learn some new techniques using my new book. I also used my new Pinkletoes PT4P membership to design an announcement for them. But…Pinkletoes deserves its own blog entry, so I will save that for when I have created more stuff!!

[I am now shooting in RAW, and post processing in Photoshop. I wanted to create a warm glow, so I adjusted the temperature of the lighting. I also removed the bags under his eyes and softened his skin blemishes.]
And a couple more from our session:

[Little boy didn’t want a beanie on!]

[Practicing the “sparkle eyes” technique. Lighting was right, his point of focus wasn’t. ]

Hi! Hello! I am Shawna, the founder of Styleberry Blog. This creative corner of the internet has become a learning haven for moms and creatives, offering a warm and encouraging nudge to those who wish to be better and do better, but often don't know where to start. From Decorating to DIY to Diapers and Paleo-ish Dishes, I strive to make the complicated simple and empower women to take action beyond their personal comfort zone. I subscribe to the Shine Theory & so strongly believe that we shine when the women around us shine and mutual support—lifting up instead of tearing down--will always be the culture here. Are you in? I hope so! Beyond the computer, I run Styleberry Creative where I work with clients to create low fuss, high function spaces that are pretty and practical in San Antonio, Texas and beyond. I LOVE making a house a home. My own studs out renovation is now complete and I am now back to working with clients. Please don't hesitate to drop me a line if you'd like to work together! I hope you’ll join me on this fun new adventure! Xo.
