I feel like I need to preface this post by saying I have never edited this many photos of my own daughter from any given “session” we’ve had. She’s my most difficult subject and honestly, I cringe whenever I know we’re going to go out shooting. My husband grimaces. Mikhaila usually winds up hungry and cranky and telling us how much she “doesn’t want to” by the end. This shoot was really no different, but I’ve learned how to call it quits with her when she’s done. If this wasn’t for a special project these images, like countless others, would sit on my computer forever. I still have images from a beach trip we took when she was in swimmy diapers. The light was just right. It was a gorgeous day. I would love to hang them up, but they’re not edited, and who knows when they will be. And even though I may share an image here or there of my family, the truth is, those images just come last! Kind of like how my husband is a landscaper but you wouldn’t know it by looking at our yard 🙂 Back to the point. Although I am a naturally creative free-spirited kind of person, something about the tech side of photography can box me in and make me feel trapped. That trap door started to loosen last August. These are close to my heart and I hope you enjoy them as well. Please feel free to leave me a comment or tell me which one is your favorite.
