  • "One"der Land Birthday

  • I put this little beauty together after Camille's first birthday party. Almost all the elements were photographed at the party, with the exception of a few elements. Her family did such a great job putting this party together for her. And I had fun mashing it all up into one picture.
  • Deer Child

  • She loves all animals. More than she loves animals, she loves feeding them. So when I got a shot of her sitting like this, it was only right I turn it into something like this. I took just over 100 pictures of her. Following her around while she played. She loves when I take pictures of her. [...]
  • Beary chilly, a composite challenge

  • I love making composites. I am in a couple of groups on Facebook to learn more about making them. Because no matter how much you think you know about Photoshop, there is always more to learn. This was created for a challenge. The fabulous Kim Scot of Photographers Unleashed created a group where peo[...]
  • What are you looking at?

  • I used 3 images to make this composite. I took the shot of the baby turtle sometime last summer. The acorn cap Holly is sitting in I took last fall. And the image of Holly, just a few weeks ago. I still feel like this one isn't finished. So don't be surprised if you see this one again only a litt[...]
  • Winter Wonder | Southern Maryland Fairy Godmother

  • Because sometimes it's just fun to play. Do you love seeing these as much as I love making them? I sure hope so because you will be seeing a lot of this showing up here. It is the "Fairy Godmother Collection". Interested in a session for your child, grandchild, or even yourself? Maybe you would just[...]
  • Crap I like this one better!!

  • Do you ever get so excited to share something that you post right away, then later wish you would have waited a bit because you thought of something better to share just moments after? No? Ok it's just me then. I posted the gator fishing picture the other day with the layered file still open in p[...]
  • Lake fishing | Southern Maryland Fairy Godmother

  • Because I love to create. I have a huge list of more things like this I want to do. I am going to be playing Photoshop Fairy Godmother. Asking children and adults who or what they want to be, and making it happen. I want to try to do a mermaid, maybe Cinderella (just because I love to play with spar[...]
  • Painted Beach

  • Another day at the beach. My favorite place to be. Holly decided we would get out of bed at 5 this morning. So I took the extra wee hours we were up to paint this image from yesterday.
  • Photoshop fun Friday 2

  • I really should do this every week. On my way to soccer practice last night I took out my idea journal and sketched this out (nope, not gonna show you my terrible stick figure sketches). When we got there Isaac went one way to practice and we went on the other side of the parking lot to take a few s[...]
  • Photoshop Fun Friday

  • I took this image last summer. And thought it would be fun to play with. I have a few new tricks and toys. I love the original just the way it is. But wanted to play with a nice picture today. Here is my play. All for the fun of it! 
  • Fairy babies and birth in a bottle

  • Oh how I love to composite! I could do this kind of work all day everyday. Where the only limit is my imagination. Let me tell you how these images came to be. I am in a couple of composite groups on Facebook. A member in one of those groups posted a link to a site that had a composite contest (www.[...]
