3 Years Later...

3 years ago photos of my kids were taken (almost 3 years to the date). They were taken for a mini session offered by a local photographer who was just starting out and knew very little about techniques with the camera or much of the work needed for post production in photoshop. Don't get my wrong I love the photos, they are of my children and I will always love photos of my kids. That being said these photos will probably never make it onto the walls of my house or displayed in the home somewhere.  The photographer was someone who was just starting out. She had no clue how to work her camera and kept it on auto during her session. My baby at the time was looking at something on the ground and you can't see her face. The boys looked as if they would have rather been chasing either other in the yard then been sitting in front of hay and a random pumpkin. Even the photographer's top of the line camera and L series glass couldn't help her on this one! 

3 years later the exact same kids, the exact same spot, the exact same camera, and the exact same photographer! 3 years of hard work, proper schooling and countless hours of wanting to just throw it all away... But I did it! I put in all the hard work and the time and got to where I am and where wanted to be. See, 3 years ago I knew what I wanted to do and I knew what it would take to get there. I knew it wouldn't come easy and not all just fall into place over night and I am happy I went for it!
