Holiday Traditions ... Edited

I promised on Monday to post my edits of our Holiday Traditions today.  It has been a crazy, busy day, and I'm sick with bronchitis ... so I'm a little late.  You'd think I'd prepare my posts ahead of time, huh?  :)

Anyway here are my edits ... mouse over to see SOOC shots ...
I don't really remember what edits I did since I did them on Monday and didn't write anything down thinking I'd remember.  But then bronchitis hit and my brain turned to mush.  So suffice it to say that I edited them in ACR as usual.  :)

I know I adjusted the white balance on this one.  It was a bit blue for me.  I'm planning to sit down and really practice the whole white balance thing after the holidays.  I prefer to get it right in camera.

I don't think I mentioned on Monday how hard it was for me to get Nick to crack a smile.  And when he did smile, he would cover his mouth with his other hand.  I finally convinced him that we'd get done with taking his picture sooner if he'd cooperate and just smile already.  :)

We're almost done with a whole year of the Shoot & Edit challenge.  While I may have missed a week here and there along the way, I have really appreciated the way Jill and Ashley have so willingly shared their knowledge and pushed me to be a better photographer and editor.  Thank you, ladies! 

Be sure to stop over at Ashley's to see more great Holiday Tradition photos.
Good to WOW

Hope you all are feeling better soon-

I Love that shot of making cookies. I struggle with the white balance a lot. Our house faces North & we only have 2 rooms that get afternoon sun- (guess that is good for our summers) but it always challenges me with the lighting for indoor photos.
