I have nearly 2800 pictures in my June 2016 folder. 2800. Those are the pictures that made the cut. Thousands more got deleted permanently. It's no secret that I love photography and those pictures add up quickly! Most of those pictures never make it onto my blog or social media. They either aren't relevant to what I'm posting or aren't up to par with my standards. But every so often it's fun to share some of those pictures from the cutting room floor!
My love of photography began when I had Dylan. I suddenly wanted to take pictures all the time and I challenged myself to improve each month. When I got my first Nikon DSLR, I was in heaven! Before long, I decided to upgrade and purchase a few lenses. What started out as a way to just take free pictures of my children turned into one of my most favorite hobbies!
Right now, I shoot with my Nikon D90, and most of the time, I use my favorite 50 mm lens. I've owned this camera for 8 years now and I'm reaching the point where it's time to upgrade again. It just isn't working quite as well as it used to, plus new technology would be awesome!
Thanks to blogging, Liam's work as a brand rep, and the occasional photoshoot for family, friends and acquaintances, I get to take pictures every single day. I'm constantly learning and I push myself to improve and try different methods. My goal when I take pictures is to capture a shot as close to the final product I'm aiming for so the picture requires minimal edits. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so most of those pictures never make it off the cutting room floor or just don't have a place on my blog. But I still want to find a way to share them, because they capture the magic of childhood, the bond my children have with each other and what life with kids is like so perfectly!
Here are a few of my favorite June snaps from the cutting room floor:
These were, without a doubt, some of my favorite moments in June! They may not have made it off the cutting room floor for a specific blog post, but when I put them all together, they told the story of an awesome month with my sweet kids!I want to know if you're like me! How many pictures do you take each month?
