The Power of Photoshop

(This could also be titled "What I Do While Watching The Office and Drinking Too Much Tea")

These are just 6 before/afters of some of my favorite pictures from the past few months! Some are definitely more drastic than others, and while I believe in getting it right “in camera,” machines can sometimes struggle to truly capture what we see with our eyes. I’ve by no means “arrived,” there is always, always room for improvement, but I love taking raw images and bringing them back to what I recall through my rose colored memory.

I’m not here to say that Photoshop is the end all, be all. That a bad photo can magically turn into a fantastic one after being run through any editing program. What I am saying is that there’s so much that goes on between the moment we say goodbye at your shoot and the email you get with your gallery.

So when you are looking for a photographer, remember that you aren’t just hiring the shooting, but also the editing. It’s that extra step that makes your memories into a piece of art. 

....and a slightly more extreme before/after. 2010 (when I was just getting into photography) to Dec. 2016. Grace's cuteness has remained consistent though!
