A few years ago, I started sharing on Instagram not only throwbacks of my work but also a “re-edit” of that throwback. It was fun, but I wanted to do more. So I thought I would not only share the original edit but the SOOC (straight out of camera), as well as the new edit. I’m really excited to do this because I am a firm believer that we can always grow and learn. Learn from ourselves, as well as others. I will be looking at the SOOC with a critical eye because I feel I will grow that way. Then I will go over the original edit and my new edit. I’ve learned SO MUCH and continue to learn and branch out in my craft, so my new edits may be drastically different, or they may be similar if I feel that the edit was true to the image.
The first round of this I have chosen an image from a maternity session back in 2017. Not a big difference in time, but I have grown to know more and am excited to share my growth with you!
I LOVE maternity photography!! There is something so magical about the female body creating and growing human life. In 2017, a local hotel was demolished, yet the remains of the building sat there for quite a long time, with no fence or anything blocking it from public access.
I was so happy to have a pregnant momma to model for me in this setting! What better way to show the beauty of destruction, then the beauty of creating life?
