Wanted to come here and share some recent work I recently opened a second studio in Austin TX so I've been working back and forth between CT and Texas, and it's been crazy, but I'm still trying to find time to share online. People sharing online was so helpful to me at the beginning of my journey, and still is! I have to admit, I don't come here too often these days, but when I did today I was shocked to see the levels of hostility in this forum. It's sad to see such a handful of aspiring photographers who lack a 'learning attitude'. That is what photography has always been about- starting from scratch, constant improving, letting your tail hang between your legs at times and taking the critique, and learning from those that have walked the same path before you. It's nice to see many professionals offering advice over here, and I hope that for the same of the true learners, they are encouraged to continue to despite some negativity. I wanted to post some pictures on a positive note though. I always enjoyed when people posted children's portraits on here before I was a professional, as I know there's not always a ton over here, so I hope that those of you interested in children's photography find this inspirational. Please feel free to ask any questions about settings, lighting, pping, etc. I'm always happy to answer. Thanks for looking!
