You know...I have cringed every time I go to write this post...but I know it needs to happen....someday.
Will this be the most embarrassing blog post in Natalie Bee's history? Yes, most likely.
Will it show everyone how far you can come by working hard and practicing? YES!!!
There is a wonderful saying I saw on Pinterest the other day..."Great things come to those who never give up and work their asses of", and it's totally, utterly true. I have been in business for NOT EVEN A YEAR (...and loving every minute of it) and I have already come so far, it's crazy! Am I a GREAT photographer? Well, that's in who you are asking...but if you are asking me, I would say, "No! But I would like to be someday", and hopefully that day will come. For now, I practice, grow, learn, experience, love.
You better not laugh at me! Yes, spot color was ALL THE RAGE when I first started (no, it was not...I just thought it was...) so no snickering at my editing skills!
I want to laugh, cry, and huddle in a corner while sucking my thumb, when I see the image on the left. What. The. Hell. was I thinking...? I ruined this little girl's amazingly beautiful skin color!! Well, you learn from your mistakes and never do them again!
Okay, okay...insert laugh out loud ---->here<----
And thank you to all the past clients who let me practice on them before I actually started my business. I apologize for my skill level in the past, and hope you can learn how to forgive me...someday! ;-)
