Signs of Spring {The Picture Perfect Project #3}

How is it the third link up for The Picture Perfect Project already?! This past month has been full of the nicest weather in California and we have been taking advantage of the sunshine by spending lots of time out of doors. Finding signs of spring has become one of my favorite parts of spending all that time in nature! (Because I'm not known for being a big outdoorsy-type, but my littles are. Go figure.)
And little hands. Swoon. From left: calla lily, Kinsey holding jasmine, Brielana digging in clover and our pear tree in bloom.

I think I'm getting better at not over-editing my pictures and that it really does take practice to get the exact look you want. Sometimes I even underexpose the pictures so editing is more dramatic, does that make me sound nuts?!
SUCH a big difference, right?!
And that's March in a nutshell! How is Spring treating you?

Thank you for joining us for another installment of The Picture Perfect Project! Add your link below! We'll be back next month on Thursday, April 14th.

  1. Love that you told us your settings and then showed the before and after! Fantastic.

  2. Great shots! I can't believe how beautiful you were able to make those darker shots just by editing them! I never have such luck. And yay for getting outdoors! We've been getting outside more often lately and it's wonderful! Bring on spring! :)

  3. aww great shots of those two beauties! and excellent editing too

  4. Great shots of the girls! Thanks for sharing your settings. I have a fancy DSLR that sits on my dresser because I have no idea how to work it! Maybe I'll bust it out this weekend.

  9. These photos of your girls are AMAZING! They are so beautiful and you captured the best moments! Your editing looks AWESOME! I avoid the big camera because I don't know how to edit :( You're inspiring me to get in and learn! The photos are worth it!

  10. The before and after a really are amazing! And I'm so excited for spring and to be able to photograph in natural light again more! I'm not really a nature girl but even I'm excited to go explore!!!

  11. I edit all of my photos! It's so necessary for me because 98% of all my pics are taken with my iPhone! It's crazy how much of a difference it can make!
