Indian Princesses

Last Christmas my sister-in-law Parmy’s parents gave Sarah two traditional Indian outfits in toddler sizes. I’ve been waiting so long for them to fit her and for the perfect occasion to don them. Tonight was the night. Rich wanted to celebrate his birthday with Indian food so Amy got the takeout and Samantha and I got the girls all decked out. We met earlier in the day to make sure they fit and to just bask in their cuteness. I just couldn’t get enough of Sarah toddling around in her Indian finery!

After posing for a few seconds Sarah decided to take the keys and go for a spin…

…but apparently the car was taken….

Check out my photo-a-day link if you want to see one more that I looooooove ———–>

Marie, I always thought I’d go back to teaching…I just love it and I think it’s something I’m pretty good at. Lately though I’ve wondered if that’s really where I’ll end up. I’d definitely like to give photography a healthy try and then we’ll see what happens from there!

Julie and Kathy, I’m SO glad you’re loving Wendy’s class although I have to say that I’m not in the least bit surprised. She’s a phenomenal teacher and an even cooler person. I have to say that I’m a little jealous sharing her with you guys though! 🙂

“anonymous”…no photoshop actions…but plenty of photoshopping! I never post straight out of the camera, every photo needs at least some color balancing and usually more than that. I use levels and curves generously. But every photo is different so I tend to shy away from actions. The only actions I might even think about using would be my friend Anna’s.

Susie and Amy…hang in there…familiar faces are bound to resurface!!

Sarah is such a beautiful Indian Princess…do they have infant Saris? Would love to see Lily in one!

The colors are absolutely wonderful! And those babies make the outfits look like lots of fun! Love, Mom

Thanks so much for answering the photoshop question! I’ve been using levels, but am hopeless with curves – off to play some more! Good to know I might be able to figure stuff out w/out actions! p.s. I love your pictures!

Hi Erin,
Another Wendy-fan signing in here. 🙂
I also want to thank you for giving us a heads-up on her class.

I’m a total newbie to this digi stuff, but I love it & can’t wait to learn.

Love, love the beautiful Indian outfits on the girls. The colors on the dresses are so magnificent; definitely photo-worthy. 🙂

I love your photog style & your conversions are so creamy. Reminds me of Frederique’s conversions, which I love.

Thanks again. Have a great weekend!
