my kind of transformation tuesday

Sometimes I like to look back at the pictures I took a year or so ago, when my business was in the really, really, REALLY early stages. Most of the time I avoid seeing those pictures, though, since I get a little bit sad that I didn't do as good a job then as I could do now. But every once in awhile, I get the opportunity to photograph someone a second time, months (or a year) after their first session. This is what happened with both a friend of mine who let me take some portraits of her, and a couple who had both their engagement photos and their weddings photos done by me. 

And today, I am going to show you a few photos from their first session and then a few from the most recent session.

L Session B (May 2015):

I have a quote from Ansel Adams sitting in a picture frame on my desk which says, "You don't take a photograph, you make it." The difference between the session A photos and the session B photos isn't the subject...it's me. I have changed and grown and figured out how to MAKE a photograph and not just TAKE a picture.

So there you have it. My kind of transformation Tuesday.
