8.29.11 - Previews from a photo session with an almost-2-year-old

This weekend, we got Liam out to some nearby fields and started clicking away.  I was confident we could get some pretty good shots of him ourselves for his "2 year old" pictures {with the help of some Photoshopping, of course}.  Hubby did a great job with his photography skills in catching Liam in some cute poses.  It was a little too late in the day, as we got outside about 7:30, so our plan is to finish up the session another evening this week and hopefully get out his 2 year announcements/invites soon!!

SO, here's a preview of how we did...

For those who follow me on Facebook, you've probably seen a couple of these, so sorry for the duplication =)  But since I know how to do VERY little on Photoshop, these are the only ones I've edited so far.   I found some great FREE action sets via Paint the Moon and The Pioneer Woman blogs.  I mainly loved the "Seventies" look from Pioneer Woman and the "Urban Delight" look from Paint the Moon....Anyways, this was an experiment gone very well I think!  I have a LOT to learn, but things are looking promising that we can at least take some cool pictures ourselves.


  1. Awww! I LOVE them! He is getting so big and even more adorable! :) Good job! :)

  2. Wow, they turned out great! He is SO cute and getting to be such a big boy!!!

  3. How cute! I wish I could take pics of Maxson like that. I've been stressing about Max's 2 year pics and getting something together for his birthday invites. I can't believe our boys will be 2 in a few short months!

  4. I love the pictures (and him)! What a cutie!!! <3

  5. Adorable!! Love, love, love them!!
