I am honestly so happy and excited about how much I've grown in my photography in just one year. It helps of course to have professional editing software and better lenses (both pictures were taken with the same camera) this year. But all the same, I've learned so much in regards to posing, backgrounds, editing and confidently taking charge during sessions.
Since this is a post to share my growth in one year, I also decided to share two sets of before and afters. One from last October and one from now. (SOOC = Straight Out of Camera)
I'm looking forward to the next few years and seeing how my photography continues to improve. :)
