Congrats Christina Skinner! Your image is so adorable that we had to feature you as the Chic of the Week.
Loved the use of the vintage box with the word squirt” describing that cute little baby, there was no way I could let it slip by without sharing it in a CHIC of the Week post.

I’m wife to a wonderful husband and a stay at home mother to a 2 and a half year old rambunctious little girl, and a silly 13 month old baby boy in sunny Orange County, California. My love for photography started when I was a child. I would make my tomboy little sister dress up in my ballet costumes and pose for me (love you sis!). I took a few classes in college where I learned to shoot on film and work in the dark room, but it wasn’t until I had my first child that a hobby I dabbled in occasionally became as necessary as breathing. I’m on my second 52 week project and have found that my style is a mix between lifestyle and traditional portraiture. I LOVE working with kids and find it insanely satisfying getting those shots that make their parent’s hearts skip a beat. I’m making the leap from hobbyist to professional photographer and although it’s very intimidating (not to mention crazy with two little ones), I’m loving my photography journey.
F 1.4, 1/800, ISO 100, Shot in RAW on Canon 5D Classic, 50mm 1.4
This was shot in the family’s front yard under a large tree at about 1pm. They live on the beach and as usual it was very overcast but very warm. I edited in Photoshop with My Four Hen’s “Happy Helpers” set and few hand edits.
What critique from Chic Critique Forum did you find helpful after sharing this image?
I always appreciate the constructive criticism on Chic Critique. I know that it’s being said in love so that I can be better at my craft. There is a fine line between being technically correct and personal preference so hearing everyone’s opinions on my images really helps me improve and see them in a new light. I so appreciate this forum!
