In case you haven't had the pleasure of staging a card photo shoot, I'll go ahead and share that there's a bit of a learning curve to it.
Recently I was going through some old photos and rediscovered these:
The photos made me laugh/cry.
Laugh, because in my head this photo was going to be epic—and as you can see, it's anything but. I was going for the most adorable shot of our Daphne Jane licking up one of her treats. Instead I had the lighting, angles, composition all wrong. Plus, she ate her treat too fast!
Cry, because it’s a photo I really wanted to try retaking, but as life (and some photo shoots prove), you can’t always plan how things will pan out. Our dog was the most patient as I learned to take better photos, made the frustrating moments fun and I miss her hard. I’ll have to enjoy the epic "fail" with these photos, appreciate the thought, and Daphne Jane’s willingness to eat her treat. :)
