A quality of myself is that I am a perfectionist. When things don’t go the way I had planned them to, it bothers me. But it bothers me even more when it involves other people. At my last newborn shoot, I had gotten a bunch of great photos. But when it came time to take the photos of the baby and daddy, I left the camera on manual focus and thought it was on automatic. Whoops. Rookie mistake. So the whole lot of baby/daddy photos were useless, in my opinion. Just totally out of focus.
LUCKILY the family is super awesome and understanding and let me come back and get a few more shots in. I am so happy that they gave me a second chance to correct myself because the next round of “re-do” photos came out beautifully and exactly how I meant the first ones to go. Thanks guys!
