Isabella’s Birthday

We celebrated this pretty little girls birthday on Saturday. Her name is Isabella, but everyone calls her Isa. She’s Sal’s Goddaughter, and she is the sweetest cutest little girl ever! She, and her parents live in Carlsbad, CA so we don’t get to see them nearly as much as we would like. Though, it does give us a good reason to go to the beach! The whole time we are driving there, I hate it, but once we are there and see the family and explore the San Diego area, it’s completely worth it.

I can’t quiet figure out how to get the color cast out completely and I don’t shoot in RAW so I cant do it manually. Maybe I should upgrade to Photoshop or Lightroom and figure it out huh? Any suggestions or favorites for what program to get?

We brought a pinata that Sal got for his birthday that we never broke into. The kids had a blast breaking it open.

The newest addition to the Ramirez family is above. Her name is Juliana and she is the cutest sweetest thing I have ever seen. Okay, they are all cute! Love them to bits!

    Lovely portrait of a beautiful girl. First one is my favorite – nice side lighting and the colors seems just right.

    What little beauties! As soon as I saw the top photo, I said to myself “What a little princess!” …. and then scrolled down to see her holding the box that says “Princess” on it!! 😀

    Beautiful shots – birthday pics the kid will probably want to keep and show to her friends in the future.

    So cute!! You really captured some great shots.

    I use Photoshop but it’s been slow learning for me.

    That top shot is a cracker – I hope the parents are getting a copy!

    I have both Lightroom and Photoshop, and if you are mainly looking at photoediting, I’d get Lightroom. It’s a lot easier to learn, and, unless you want to get into photomanipulation rather than editing, will do 95% of what you will probably want to do. It’s also a lot cheaper. (For reference, most of the pictures on my blog are edited completely in Lightroom.)

    Just adding a word for Lightroom. I use it for about 95% of my photo editing, it’s also very good for organization as you start to build your library.
