Editing - I love this process!
There's a few steps to get to a polished product (#5):
1. Shoot the photo
2. Back up the photo
3. Bring the photo into a sifting and editing program
4. Retouch the photo
5. Polished product
The photos below are a few examples of how a photo goes from #3 to #4.
The photos might look good at #3 but I will always opt for them to go on to #4 and be a polished, beautiful product.
A vibrant, colorful image that is great quality and finished with care.
It might take a bit longer to receive the images from your session, but this is why -
the retouching that goes into them is meticulous and purposeful and dare I even say beautiful.
