Life is not always as it seems.
I’m sure you’ve heard that phrase many times, but it bears repeating now and again.
The pictures you see on Pinterest and your favorite blogs have a hidden story, one that you seldom hear. At least they do on this blog. 😉
Behind the fancy camera is a messy kitchen and a “photographer” in yoga pants who needs to shower. Badly.
The perfect lighting is an east facing window. The white background is a fridge next to a piece of plywood taking a break from covering up a hole to the crawl space in the basement.
The perfect studio has someone trying to climb the tripod and a cheering section with oohing, aahing, and making beep noises like the camera timer.
And maybe a few meltdowns.
and that picture you saw at the beginning?
It had about a half hour of editing work done while the kids are bickering and tearing the family room apart. 🙂
