Shoot & Edit

Ok, so I have to admit that I have an editing obsession.  I love taking photos, of course, but I love editing them to see what they can become.  It's my favorite part of the photography process by far!

I was so excited when I saw that Ashley from Ramblings and Photos and Jill from Forever'n Ever'n Always Photography posted about their new weekly photo challenge: Shoot and Edit!

The first theme is WINTER

Winter is my favorite season because of the colors and tones of snow and ice.  Luckily, I snapped a few shots around Christmas when we got our first "real" snow of the year!!

Here is my SOOC (straight out of camera) shot

I really like the way it turned out already, so my plan for edits will be minimal for sure!  I think winter shots are good for the whole "less is more" motto.

Now, as much as I want to share my edit, that will have to wait for Thursday...


Mom to 9 Blessings!

Steph I'm with you on most photos less is more. I'm not big into huge edits unless it is totally artistic. Your shot is AWESOME!

Thanks for linking up with us!


love and life ♥

Great photo! Can't wait to see the edit! xo


Ooo i love how you managed to capture some bokeh in the trees! Definitely looks great already!

Ashley Sisk

Well you definitely know how to edit already so I look forward to seeing how you take this already great shot to perfection!


Extremely wintery! I like the bokeh. Can't wait to see what you do with this!


This photo is awesome! I love everything about it - the lighting, the composition. I can't wait to see what you do with it on Thursday!
