Photo Booth Strip tutorial

okay photo friends this is how you make a photo booth strip in lightroom 

select 4 images that you want in the strip
then click on the "print" mod
right under the print tab select contact sheet/ grid from the layout menu
on the left hand side of your screen under the templates select 4 Wide
back on the right hand side select zoom to fill * you can move the images around (with in its block) by click and drag.
now play around with your cell height and width until you get it the way you like
i used 2.36 for H
and 2.17 for W 
NOW "print to file" to do this you need to scroll all the way down on the rt side, under print job select jpeg under the drop down menu. when you do this the bottom rt button changes from print to print to now just print to file AKA "save as"
last but not least re-import the file and crop it down to size.
There! now you have yourself a cute little photo booth strip....the easy way!

Self Portrait

It's true, Photographers are so busy taking other peoples pictures that they never get any of themselves. I woke up the other morning thinking I have NO professional pictures of my daughters and I or with the hubby. So my goal for the day was to get some of my girls and I. I admit it was a challenge and they are not perfect...but we are not perfect so I'm of with that. Next Ill have to add the hubby and somehow I feel that will be more challenging hahah.

Another art. (Photography)

I told y'all from the jump that I'm all over the place and I start another project before I finish one. That's why I love photography so much, I feel like I accomplished something in one day (hrs). So Saturday morning my youngest took an early nap so my 4 yr old and I had some much needed mommy daughter one on one time. I hadn't done any photography since I graduated (June 7th) and felt a need to produce something. Normally Marisa hates for me to take pictures of her, so I had to take things up a notch to get her interested. Soooo I told her I would put all of mommies make up on her if she would be my model. BINGO! that was the here she is. Miss Aguilar 2011

Bedside Table

I inherited these (I have 2) from an awesome friend. Although they are in really good shape I am still going to paint them. I color matched a grayish blue from my duvet coverlet. Ill probably paint the clover shapes in white as well as the design on the legs.
