Angel Babies

Intro to my photobar...It just occurred to me that there's no explanation or introduction.  Click this Post Title or the image to jump back and forth.

The Alpha Bubble
This was my first "art" project with soap bubbles, taken 4th of July quite a while ago. The "beams" are photoshopped, but the bubble itself is unretouched photo. I really like the elements (earth, air and with a good imagination water) and the yin-yang effect.

Mikala, the Rainbow Angel
(Themed Angel)
Mikala was playing at a church picnic, running down a hill when I captured her. She was my 2nd Themed Angel Baby.

Rece, Garden Angel
(Series Angel)
Rece was my original AB, (shown in next image), and was my first Garden Angel as well. I had so many flower images in my catalog and nothing to do with them. So, by Divine Intervention...Garden Angels were born.

Rece, Inspiration Angel
(Themed Angel)
Rece, was my first AB. Born several months premature, my first images of him were so sad--he was so small with tubes everywhere. He was about 6 months old in this photo. His mom and I met at a fast-food joint to catch up. Rece's older brother held him on his hip in this shot. So quite a while later I was cleaning up a laptop hard drive and ran across his photo. Searching for respite from a difficult job, I started playing around with his image and voila!

Ally, Garden Angel 
(Series Angel)
Ally Angel is playing in a hydrangea.

Ally, The Time Angel
(Themed Angel)
Ally's photo was from a photo shoot for her AB image--her mom had specific ideas of what she wanted--which was more a Basic Angel. As soon as I saw this image of Ally, I knew she was my Time Angel...had more trouble finding the hourglass than anything. Don't let her steal your time! lol

Michael, Garden Angel
(Series Angel)
Michael is playing in an orange azalea, or mountain azalea.

The Lunar Bubble 
The Lunar Bubble ends the photobar. This is a soap bubble overlayed onto an image of a full moon. I really like how it looks like an opal.
