My husband took these photos next to an old shed in Iowa when our oldest son was still a baby. I love the texture of the peeling paint in the background. The original photo is at the top. I applied Scott Kelby’s ‘trendy high-contrast’ effect on the second version, and used his ‘3-step portrait finishing’ effect on the third image. I also wamed up the color a bit on that last one. I think the last one is my favorite; it seems like a mother-baby picture should be warm and soft.
