before and after: coffeeshop perfect portrait

I thought I should give this action a shot:

Before:
_MG_0837-sooc
After:
_MG_0837-pp
I'm really amazed at what this action did for this photo.....normally I wouldn't have changed anything but the nose clean-up.....and I LOVE it now!

Boy...she loves posing for the camera now.  She always asks me to take a picture of her "picture me" "picture this".  Am I in trouble???
Touch Up Tuesday's at the Paper Mama



and then, she {snapped}
And....it seems that I can't finish the prompts from anything lately & I'm tired of not joining up, so I'm going to just add my own edit to Ashley & Jill's challenge....

GOOD GRIEF, she's cute! Yeah, this action is amazing. One of my very favs!

She is so cute! This action is wonderous, let me tell you! I love it. She has a newer version called Perfect Portrait 4 and I've been meaning to go get it and check it out! But it gives you so many "clean" edit options to do to your photo! She is ADORABLE...did I mention that?! And your portrait work is always amazing!
