Every now and again I open up my archives and look around. I do this from time to time to see my progression in photography, but also to see if I find any gems. If you're a photographer, you probably know what I mean. We spend countless hours reviewing and editing photos and after a few days we are exhausted. But, we pick our very best and make sure to provide these to our clients. But, down the road we look again and perhaps our style has changed or we get that idea of "I wonder what that would look like in black and white", and we try it.
Another reason to look back is to find some nice photos for promotional materials. To add variety its good to not continue re-using the same few photos. So I'll dust off my first external hard drive and look around.
And last, but not least, I enjoy looking back at these photos because it shows me how much these people have grown up. Its always been awesome being able to photograph my little cousins as they do seem to be growing really fast. So I enjoy looking back as in some ways they haven't changed and in others you can tell they becoming all grown up.
These are just a few of the photos I found so far:
This is my little cousin and her sister is in the next photo.
This is my other little cousin and it was taken at her 1yr birthday party.
This is one of my friend's daughters.
And this is my other friend's daughter.
This is one of my college friend's son.
This is Katie. She's a friend/model that I've worked with over the years.
This is a make up artist/model that I met via a local photography group a few years ago.
I'll be posting more photos shortly.
