Some photos of my baby girl

This afternoon Lily and I were lucky enough to be able to spend the afternoon at the beach with Christine and her beautiful daughters Josie and Sammi (it was Josie's birthday) - HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOSIE!!

Lily had a great time playing in the playground (well that was until she slipped over and got a teeny tiny cut on her toe, but the way she was carrying on you would have been forgiven for thinking that she needed to be rushed to the nearest hospital - that's three year olds for you! hahaha). Once she calmed down - she was even lucky enough to get to have a swim with the birthday girl!

While we were at the beach, I managed to snap these photos of Lil.

She looks so serious in this one.

Normally when I try and take a photo of her, I get this posed half squinty, tongue poking out, face - so these ones are a nice change (oh and it's also a real surprise that there is no food smooshed all over her face LOL).

I also had a little play around in my new favourite program...Picasa, and in the first photo I saturated the colours, and in the second one I just added the soft focus around the edges to give it that dreamy look.

I am by no means an expert, but I am loving all the things that you can do just with one little click of a mouse button.



  1. Stunning photos Tamara. I especially like the second one. You have to scrap it. Just beautiful.xx

  2. Hrmm, might have to check out Picasa. I just use the default Window's Photo Editor (with XP) and Photoshop for the harder stuff (or Dean!!!).

  3. Beautiful photos....look forward to seeing them scrapped!...umm I might have to have a play with this Picasa..I keep hearing good things about it!

  4. Oh Missy T these pics are just gorgeous.

  5. So love what you have done to the photos, my fav is the 2nd one I can so see that appearing on a layout soon. xx
