touch-up tuesday & simplicity: portrait

My before & after doesn't have major changes, but it's starting to drill into my head "wash your children's faces before taking photos!!!!"

We'd painted just before the kids decided to go and play in the newly fallen snow yesterday.  I love this shot of Lily, but the paint on her nose....argh!

Before:

Here's the edit:
I used the spot healing brush, eye sparkle and Amy McMaster's free Berries & Cream.

What a beautiful picture. Your edit was just the perfect touch! Snow? I hope it doesn't hit us in this part of Canada anytime soon.

This is an amazing shot! Love the combination of textures: softness of the fur framing her sweet little face with the wisps of hair and dusting of snow. Precious!

What an awesome shot! Gotta love the spot removal tool for getting rid of paint and food smears on kids' faces. I can't believe it's snowing already there but I suppose it is late October and you are in Alberta : )
