Goodbye Summer {The Picture Perfect Project #9}

I was ready to say goodbye to summer last month, just because we were back in school and all that, but our weather has different ideas! I know we are beyond blessed to live in such a beautiful and steady-climate area but (you knew there was a"but", right?) living without differentiating seasons can be a bit of a downer. However, being able to spend year-round at our neighborhood park kinda is awesome, too! 

Kinsey has been werking it with her poses. She cracks me up!

I like to call this "the mermaid" ;)

Just look at those eyes. She may be going through a "don't look straight at mom when she has her phone pointed at me" phase, but these candid pictures are just so beautiful. I know I'm biased but with her big eyes and rosebud mouth I get to do some bragging :) #Imadethat

How manic does she look here?!

Basically, Monkey See, Monkey Do with these two.

I took about ten pictures of the girls on this defunct water fountain (fun fact: its twin is located at Dennis the Menace Park!) but this one just showed Brielana's personality.

I've been testing out a new picture editing App (PhotoShop Express) since it's free but I'm not 100% sold on it. My heart still beats for Afterlight but I thought it'd be fun to compare the original to Afterlight to PS Express. Which do you prefer?

  1. Great photos!!! Kinsey's poses crack me up and Brielana's eyes are killer!! The local zoo I grew up going to had that same lion. :)

  2. I love all of Kinsey's poses! Such beautiful girls you have!

  3. haha the poses =) Just like Ariel! lol I made that. Nice job mom! Such cute shots this month.

  4. That third picture. Oh my word those eyes are beautiful. I just adore that photo. Great job!

  5. I love "the mermaid" pose, so cute. I like the afterlight processing slightly better. But it could be the way my monitor is making the colors look.

  6. They are so cute together! Great job on these pics!

  7. The mermaid - ha!! Kinsey's poses are awesome.
    Those eyes of Brielana's. Holy gorgeous!!

  8. I love how saturated the PS Express version is! I'm going to have to check it out!

  9. So many cute pictures, but I love the third one down the most! Her eyes!!!

  10. Kinsey’s poses – swoon! Girlfriend has got it down. And Brielana not looking at you…I remember that stage well. Actually, Mason is still in that stage. Haha. Both of your girls are dolls! Afterlight has my photo-loving and editing heart.

  11. Such beautiful photos of your girls! I like the "afterlight" edit for your picture. (I really wish I knew more about photography.) You truly captured some awesome expressions--so precious.

  12. These photos are so cute! As are your little models! I cannot get over that one of her eyes!! Amazing shot, mama!
