Kids always look adorable with animals. It's a great opportunity to capture their excitement on film. I took this photo of my three older children, Jeremiah, Jessica and Samantha, in 2005. We were visiting their godparents atSpier in Stellenbosch, South Africa when we came across these cute little ducklings.
In order to create this effect, I used Orton-ish and Matte in Picnik. It brings out a warm glow to the photo, which is perfect for this shot.
