4 little Fergusons Photography: Paxton ~ 18 months old

  Paxton is 18 months old!  Time for a photo session. (better late than never)


   This is my first session done WITHOUT my very very favorite editing program.  It makes me want to cry that I will not have access to Picnik’s easy to use tools, texts and collages.  Even though it’s not gone for good yet, I MADE myself edit in Lightroom tonight. MADE MYSELF! 

  It is better for me to practice and tweak on my own kiddos than someone who is paying me to take their session. I have GOT to learn this program and soon

  It was difficult and I seriously was seeing spots by the time I was done, from staring at all those tiny sliders and words, ugh.

  Without further adieu, (or whining) I give you, my first edits in Lightroom of my sweet baby Pax.

I KNOW they need work, some are too blue, some are too red, some are too green, they are all darker than I like them to be…Rrrrr!!!!  I’m working on it, and practice makes perfect, right?!?!?!  Oh yeah, I said no more whining. 

Carry on! 🙂






 Such a sweet baby face and I just wanna kiss those smooshy lips!

  5. Tonya these all turned out great, I think you did an excellent job!! The one I love most is the smaller middle one with his hand in his pocket.

  6. Such a cutie. He seems to have a natural affinity for the camera. You take great photos. I am new to reading your blog and am slowly catching up with your story. Praise God for his infinite glory. P. S. I, too, and am country girl.

    • I do and I LOVE it! I waited FOUR babies to get a brown haired – brown eyed baby, rather than blonde and blue! It was getting so bad that people were asking me if I died my hair brown. (Not because I act blonde either…..Usually brown is the dominate gene, not at our house!) I can still honestly say “No” I don’t dye my hair, but now that I’ve got my brunette, they don’t ask as much. Phew! 🙂

  7. Oh, he is just sooooo sweeeet!!! Like everyone else said, you can’t go wrong taking pictures with such a cutie as that!!! Those big brown eyes are amazing!

  8. You know, to us non-photographers who are still taking pics with our teeny little digitals, we don’t see reds or blues, just awesome pictures! He is so adorable and the pics are great. Happy 18 month b-day to the little guy 😉
