I am such a sucker for then and now pictures. There's been a trend going around social media lately where you post your first ever profile pic and your one now...so a then and now. While I haven't done mine (cause boring) it did inspire me to do some then and now shares from my photography journey.
I started taking pictures almost 6 years ago...and looking back on some of my first shoots, OHHHH BOYYYY. How I have grown. What I have learned. What leaps and strides I've taken with my setups, captures, equipment, editing, and post-processing. And I'm not done yet...my now is not my forever. I hope to continue to grow and learn and cannot wait to to see where I am 6 years from now! Because this is MY JOB right now -- my only job, I am officially my own boss and I couldn't be happier. Top/left is then (2013-2014ish), and bottom/right is now (end 2017-now).
And looking back on how far I've come (and huge thank yous to these first friends/clients who let me snap their pictures and supported me...because without them I couldn't have grown, learned what I have, and gotten better) I am amazed with my growth. We all start somewhere, and I am grateful to my beginnings and where it's gotten me now! Forever and ever grateful for this journey and career of mine :)
