As we all know, the iPhone is getting pretty good at taking nice pictures. However, I am working on perfecting the 1.2 megapixel front facing camera. It’s perfect for showing off your new hat or the never to go away duck lips. However, at times it is so grainy and allows too much light in. So, I have been working on a few Lightroom improvements to the front facing photos I have taken. I never profess to be perfect but I love learning!
Grainy but not a horrible picture taken at dusk on Fernandina Beach with my fiancé on the 4th of July.
Brighter, less grain and more focus on us; this photo is not retouched just edited so there are no unnecessary shadows on our faces from the cloudy and setting sun.
A quick picture I snapped at the pool. The pool is so white with the added light in the background that it makes it looks like the sun is in front of me.
Less light and more focus on the subject, my hat, my vibrant dress, and me (with proper skin tones)!
My afternoon snack… Fat Free Frozen Whipped Cream with Blackberries
So while watching my cousins, who call me Aunt Jessica, we decided to walk to the park down the street. Parks are a little different around here and they love it!!! I only had my iPhone so I had to make the best of what I had but the shots were priceless! More to come!
Here is the oldest on the newest swings!
He was actually pretty good at staying on this tire rotator.
Never as I ever was,
Ever more than I could be,
Two heartbeats thrive as one,
My soul now lives within thee.
So even though my camera battery died I was able to capture a few beautiful shots of one of my best friend’s baby. Caroline is a long time friend of mine and we have been talking babies for a few years. Now, her Ava Jane is here and she is just as perfect as we both imagined! I love her to pieces!
Thank you Caroline for letting me love on her!
This is how I found the lovely lady. So long and beautiful! Yep, she will be a model.
Bubbles!!! Sleepy little girl.
This is my favorite picture! I finally woke her up and what does she do… reach for her mommy! I literally cried at how precious this moment was to me. To see my friend finally a mommy!
Can you tell I’ve been in tears! I’m so in love!
Joe and I ended a perfect day, and more is yet to come….
I will share the blog post from my photographer when I get it!

I finally got to meet my wedding photographer and I can’t imagine a better one out there!! She was so sweet and fun the entire time. I knew she was there by the giggles, awws, and how she posed us. But it was all just an amazing night out with my future husband! Even with a wardrobe malfunction!!!
Britt Croft Photography is the best!
My little man is ready for his mommy and daddy’s engagement shots tomorrow!!!
