Contact me today to schedule a fabulous custom session- you will LOVE the results. Availability is limited.

Photo Editing Lessons

Meet Joan- an absolutely fabulous model who hired me earlier in the week to do some updated head shots. She was fantastic enough to humor me with the artsy shots, too... I loooove working on my art. :)

So what makes this image "Art?" Well, there are lots of reasons but to begin with- it did not come out of the camera looking this way. LOL. I did work in Photoshop to give it this final finish. This image has already brought me some terrific feedback from many amazing photographers + viewers out there. And, "wow" this week I have really been swamped with emails/facebook messages that are inquiring about my one-on-one email photo editing lessons. I just thought it was a great image to use in my post today.

Some of you know that I do hold a teaching certificate and am selectively willing to share knowledge with those who desire it. Eventually I will update my website with a section of information pertaining to these sessions but for now- here is the scoop for anyone who wants to know.

  • I accept LIMITED amounts of students per month due to time restrictions but currently DO still have some availability for November.
  • Lessons are given once a week via email and are 3-part in format
  • Hands on application + evaluation from me personally for every lesson.
  • Lesson topics are custom designed per client desire and open to all skill levels
  • Lessons are completed using Layers in Photoshop Elements, PSCS2, PSCS3, PSCS4 or Corel...especially for color toning and use of textures!! (like pictured below)

Please send me a note for complete price list and/or a list of sample topics
I can be reached at jenlynnalder@aol.com or on Facebook.

Have a terrific Halloween weekend everyone! :)

Autumn Beauty (Northville, Michigan Children Photographer)

OK, I confess... I worked this session a little faster because today is Mom's Birthday and I know how much she wanted to see them....

Oh, and for the record, Miss "L" was a total doll. You may remember her from this session with me (a former Little Punk Contest winner from 6 months ago!)- she has really warmed up to the camera and was soooo great to see + fun to work with. I REALLY enjoyed my Autumn children sessions this year. The colorful sights and excited subjects brought tremendous energy. Have a look:

And some extra artsy ones...

Happy Birthday, Mom! It was awesome seeing you and your mini-me again! Stay in touch :)

Cuteness Cubed (Northville, Michigan Children Photographer)

So I finally had a chance to meet up with 3 of the cutest kids around. Bad weather set us back a couple of times but Mom was able to make the trip from Michigan's west coast last week. Yep, lots of fun!! It was colder than we anticipated but the kids did GREAT. I cannot wait to work with them again in the future. They were very cooperative and I love the colors Mom dressed them in. Have a look-

And little Miss "L" is up next.... stay tuned for her Autumn images. They will be coming soon :)

I hope you enjoyed the show!!!! Thanks for stopping by :)
