Photo Retouching

For anyone who might be interested, I'm still available for photo retouching. So, spread the word!

How it works: You send me your photo that you've taken yourself, through an email, with a note about what you would like done to it. I'll take a look at your picture (read: it must be a photo taken by you), and get back to you ASAP on if I am able to achieve a satisfactory edit for you. You let me know if you want me to work on it, I send you a small, low res., watermarked sample of your image. You (hopefully) like it and send me a payment ($12/image) ASAP and I email you your unmarked, full size image back once payment has cleared. See link for payment info http://christinedhall.blogspot.com/2010/11/photo-retouching.html

Prints of your image may also be purchased through me for an additional fee + the price of shipping/handling. You can find a price list here http://photosbychristinedhall.blogspot.com/2009/08/la-cart-print-pricing.html
Other sizes are available as well, just let me know what interests you, and I'll get back to you with a price list. Note: I use a professional lab to print photos so images are printed on professional photo paper with a lustre coating to protect from UV exposure and fingerprints.

(this Shoes On a Line image is available for purchase through my Society 6 - you can get it as a fine art print, stretched canvas, iphone case, or a skin for your iphone or ipod. 

(Orange flowers -  "Float" image is also available for purchase through my Society6)
FYI: If there's something else you might like that you don't see available, I do take special orders. :)

Morning Weather Report

This morning I woke up to find my 4 year old and 1 year old watching the news in the living room in the dark, by themselves. I was informed, "Mom, it will be sunny 2 days... but not today." And then I was asked to change the channel. I love my boys and I love hearing that the sun will be out somewhere. :)

I love it when my boys are getting along. They came out of the bedrooms dressed up like this the other day. And this is what I got when I said "now look kinda tough and serious" --

Looks like he's tough enough to "kick some ass!" No?
(That's what he likes to tell us when he gets mad now -- wonder where he picked that up from...)

This was our first Halloween after our move out west. Everyone looked great in their costumes and were very excited.
After getting all the kids dressed up, I tried to get a group shot but I didn't have the right lens.
And the cutest pumpkin ever wouldn't stop running around. I think he liked his costume.
Of course I couldn't get everyone to look at me at the same time.

My little bunny had to throw at least one screaming fit before she went trick-or-treating.
Granny was told (s)he had a nice figure by a stranger passing out candy - he had to ask dad what a figure was. :)
Birthday Girl went as a Special Policeman. Her mustache reminds me of her Uncle Bobby's for some reason. :)
See, she turns the tears on and off real quick. Here she is only a few moments later smiling and showing me her tail.

Ghost/Skeleton Pirate - ALWAYS has to be something spooky for Halloween.
Again - CUTEST Pumpkin EVER, dancing and running around (before sugar).

Arrrrrrrgh! Enough with the pictures already! I want to go trick-or-treating!

Hope everyone had a fun Halloween like we did!
