In addition, I had an ulterior motive - I wanted a photo of the red necklace that I just finished a week or so ago, and I have always envisioned my jewelry on a pretty model. And lastly, I have had so much fun using PicMonkey lately to add special effects and "high drama" to my photos. Put all three factors together and voila!, you have a photo shoot.
My artistic stylings...don't even THINK about using them without my permission!!
A couple of these takes (minus the necklace) might even be a great Senior portrait. I did do some retouching and editing just to play with PicMonkey, but she really is a beauty without my help...not too prejudiced, do ya think???!!!
Unretouched, and with her little brother.
We may try it again later on, sans necklace and perhaps a little less makeup!
Laurel. Genes are everything! LOL!
