Before/After....and why I've been missing....

Ok, charity game I was hired to photograph is done. I am one tired Mama!
I will be posting photos from it a little later.....for right now, I need a basketball break!

So, as I've mentioned, I'm taking Faith's DSLR class, and it's awesome...... I'm having a BLAST learning my camera better!

So, for my before/after this week, I'm going to use one of the portraits I did of my daughter, R...

Before:


After:


She is my Diva, for sure! Here's a few more of my rock star...



and channeling her inner Janis Joplin...


Hop on over the Pixel Perfect, and see everyone's amazing edits this week!

Here's a few other shots I've taken for Faith's class in the past week or so....









Oh, ok..... one basketball photo from the charity game....



As for me, we've got a appointment next week with S's surgeon.....it's just your standard every six months visit, but it makes my stomach get all butterfly-ish....I mean, we just never know. We could go there next week, and have him see something in her mouth that needs fixing, and find ourselves gearing up for surgery again. Not what I want to have happen, but I'm trying to prepare myself in case. That's the tough thing, the care is so individualized after the first year, there's no laid out, set in stone path we are following. During her first year, I KNEW she's be having lip/nose surgery between 3 - 6 months, and I KNEW between 10 - 12 months, she'd have palate surgery.......now everything that lays out in front if us is full of possibles and maybes. ::::Sugh::::: I know it'll be ok no matter what. God's there, walking me through it all, even when I only see one set of footprints in the sand.....
