Pixel Perfect's Before/After Blog Hop

It's Thursday again which means BLOG HOPS {my regularly scheduled post for Part 4 of Finding Grace In Her Smile will still be posted today}

I missed last weeks, but this weeks I am super excited about because this picture is of my gorgeous sister Jaclyn.  She has the most gorgeous blue dress that I asked her to bring with her on her visit from Australia.  We were able to sneak a mini photo shoot just hours before she had to book a flight back to Aussie Land, but this was what I was able to capture of her before she did.


SOOC



Edit
I was going for a slightly aged/vintage look that would make her the modern day Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice.  Although I LOVE the pop of color and how amazing her blue dress is in the SOOC, I wanted to create a look and I hope I did just that.

I used my Nikon D40 with a 55-200mm lens.  I shot it the worst time for sun exposure (3pm California time) but utilized it to my best ability.  I edited in CS3 using Coffee Shop's Simply Vintage Action changing the opacity a little here and there.
