good to WOW: Christmas shot

This is my first 'good to Wow' link up! The SOOC shot was pretty bad. I didn't think I managed to get any good ones after my short session with Addison this morning. Why is it always harder with your own kid? She didn't have much patience with me! But after just a little tweaking I think it came out pretty nice!

SOOC shot:
bubbly tongue smile- seems to be her new thing :)

what I did...
opened in LR
adjusted WB, brightened it a bit +40 and added a little contrast +10, +20 fill light, and +3 saturation
cropped- I did not want herout of focus/blurry arm in the picture!
opened in PSE
cloned a couple bokeh lights to add more
ran Florida action  from Everyday Elements
sharpened her eyes just a touch using PW's action
used a high pass filter with overlay at 30% opacity

my result:

& here are two others I liked..

this one was a quick attempt, baby girl was starting to get fussy :)

I may try one more shoot before the Christmas lights are done and over with! momma still has some ideas up her sleeve ;)
