A few weeks ago while on pinterest searching for some ideas to use for upcoming photoshoots, I had Sarah in my lap.
We saw a series of photos that was done where the little girl's bedroom was filled with pink balloons.
I was online searching for something to do with a set of young brothers, so this was not exactly what I was looking for....
but Sarah's eyes got very wide and filled with excitement when she saw it.
She asked me if we could try to do something like this here at the house.
It looked like fun and I told her when we had some time, we could give it a try!
Knowing I was on vacation this week, I thought we would give it a shot.
I bought the big bag of pink balloons last Sunday......
and started blowing them up on Monday:)
The original plan was to have two princesses in the tub batting those balloons around.....
but unfortunately the littlest princess was too sick:(
We held out hoping she would feel better and by Tuesday evening, Sarah could no longer wait.
Those balloons were calling her name and she was begging me to let her climb in.
She had SO MUCH FUN that night in her balloon bath!
I think this is the most fun the two of us have ever had with the camera and I believe that comes shining through in every last photo.
Camera: Canon 5d Markiii
Lens: Canon 35mm f1.4 and Canon 85mm f1.2
The settings for the top photo were:
These pictures were taken around 7pm as the sun was setting and beaming in the window. The shots with sun flare are real sun flare, it was not enhanced this time:) As for processing, it was on the light side. A little add some drama from Florabella's Classic Workflow Collection along with some slight textures from Sarah Gardner's various collections. Also did a little face work on the close up shots using Florabella's Makeover and Retouch set.
I wish my bathroom would have been white, I think the pink would have popped more against that instead of the beige, but either way, the light is what drew me into this series of photos and of course the sheer joy pasted all over Sarah's face.
As I mentioned in my 4th of July post, Reagan is feeling much better, but while we visited the dr this week, he heard an abnormal sound when he listened to her heart. He scheduled an Echocardiogram which was done at our local hospital yesterday. We are just waiting for it to be reviewed by a pediatric cardiologist and we should have the results early this week. We are hopeful it is a benign murmur and nothing to be worried about..... but I cannot help but let my mind wander as we wait. If you are the praying type, we would appreciate a few prayers on Reagan's behalf. I will keep everyone posted and let you know as soon as we hear back from our dr.
