As I edit photos from my last maternity shoot of Oma & AJ, I was not proud of my work in any way. I felt like I slacked the enthusiasm of having to be in the moment of sharing their special moment in having their photos taken of their first unborn child.
So, like it was once said “I am my own biggest critic. Before anyone else has criticized me, I have already criticized myself". - C. JoyBell C.
Because I was not proud and happy about the photos even though I was told that they loved it.. I was not feeling it.. The colors, the concept, the weather, the timing... all of those sounds like excuses.. And it is really not me! But at that moment.. for days, I could only feel awful and yucky about the photos I've taken. WHY? Because I know for a fact, I can always do better, show my work better, and be proud of what I have accomplished. It is a big thing for me when it comes to posting up pics of my work.. It's my signature piece, it's my name on it, it's everything I've worked hard for to build a name for myself.
So here is the new Maternity shoot of Oma & AJ.. I am very, very happy to know that they were willing to be photographed for the second time, at last minutes request. Photo was taken outside of their apartment on a cloudy day. Never did I thought it will make my clients look beautifully in love of being a soon to be Mommy & Daddy. Enjoy!
