There are days that, no matter what I try, things go against me. Here I have barely any light, it was the end of a shoot, so I’m pretty shaky. I LOVE this image…I love the composition, Morgan’s sweet expression, her relaxed stance, and I know it’s weird but I love the way the dress flows in front of her. But the image is not technically great, not even good. At this moment, I think I needed an off-camera flash. So this is where editing comes in! I did the usual in Lightroom and then took it to Photoshop and applied a little bit of Florabella’s Blue French and Sable on it. Brought it back to Lightroom and finished. So now the photo becomes a beautiful memory that I can share with my client. :)

When it comes to picking out a photographer for your family, I think it all boils down to how the photographer edits his/her photos. We all can take a photo with the same pose, same equipment, same stats, but our individual decisions on how to edit will give you a glimpse of our style and personality. So hopefully you’ll see enough consistency in the photographer’s work to know what you like and don’t like and make your decision accordingly.
