This Moment

I feel like I haven't made a page in forever! I've been busy getting ready to move into our new house but I defintely needed a break today!

This is a picture of me helping Isabella feed Angelina a bottle, which Isabella very much wanted to do during our Fourth of July outing! I wanted to keep the page simple and let the photo do most of the talking. While the layout is simple, there was a lot of editing done on the photo, something nobody ever realizes until you show them the original! So, see below...

As you can now see, I removed Brad from the background. It's not that I don't love him or anything but he just wasn't part of the moment I was trying to capture! I used the clone stamp tool in PSE to create grass in place of him. I then used the spot healing brush to go over areas that looked obviously duplicated from using the previous tool. I then also blurred the background with the blur tool to bring all the focus to us in the foreground, it was rather busy in the background with all those trees. I also upped the brightness and contrast after turning the photo to b&w. My favorite part of this photo is that if you look close enough, you can see Angelina reflected in my glasses, which is the only reason I didn't crop myself out!

So, there's been plently of pages of Brad made, as a father and as a husband... but this is the first time I've made a page devoted entirely to him! My sister-in-law took this photo at Christmas this past year and I just loved it, thanks Jenn! I'm also really loving these templates too, there will defintely be more coming!
