My volleyball coach used to always say, “Practice doesn’t make perfect. Practice makes BETTER.” I never liked when he’d say that. When you’re dripping in sweat during preseason in a ninety-degree gym with no air-conditioning, you want to believe it’s all going to be worth it. ;) And ultimately, you want to hear that you’ve mastered a technique and then move ON.
However, since my volleyball days have ended, I’ve realized that there’s actually a lot of truth behind my coach’s sentiment. If there’s one thing I’ve learned through this journey, it’s that there is ALWAYS room for improvement. And ironically, that EXCITES me! I always want to feel like I’m moving forward, investing in learning, and providing the very best for my clients. Because of this, I hope practice never does make perfect. If further improvement wasn’t attainable, we as artists would stop striving to better ourselves and our craft!
So my dear sister and brother-in-law are champs. They were Carrie Logan Photography GUINIE PIGS and should go down in history as heroes, truly. Why? Because they put up with photo shoot after photo shoot the first few years of my business as I practiced and practiced to be better at this thing I love so much. Hudson + Emily were my little seventeen year old “engaged” models and I will love them forever for it. :) So let’s take a little walk down memory lane to see some of my earliest work, shall we? ;) Oh my, is it humbling…
