Hippity Hoppity|Easter's on it's way

It's been crazy rainy lately so I unfortunately had to do her Easter pictures inside. I bought this chair in hopes of placing it in a wide open field of green and purple clovers but it's just too soggy. She didn't really want to sit in it, she preferred standing and rocking it and I had to bribe her with Jelly Beans. :)

playing with textures...


I got the chair at Burlington Coat Factory.

Johanna Hallenberger said...

OK LOVE THOSE!! Is that background paper? How did you get the reflection on the bottom? Was it that action off of PIF? Seriously, LOVE THOSE. The frist one and b&W one are my faves...

Great Job!

Chelsea said...

i love these, ready for Emma and Clara to have them done together!!! It will have to be after easter though! Anyway, She is so cute!!!

Melissa said...

the background is seamless paper and the reflection is used with plexi glass (home depot has it) you have to clone out the edges though.

Dawn said...

These are gorgeous!!! That blue seamless is just perfect with Clara's eyes. Do you use an action for your b&w conversion? It just makes the photo glow...stunning. --Dawn

the black and white is indie's fav b&w action, by far my favorite b&w

where did you get your paper? Looks great. And is the dress TCP?! I'm sad you went shoppping without me. I had a big sad day of shopping in Flagstaff Wed w/o you. Ok, it wasn't sad, but it would have been 10x better with you! MOVE HERE! The dress I wanted from TCP was sold out in Kam's size last week! GRR! We got a silly looking easter dress...not really eastery at all! but I love it!
