So just to prove how new I am to this business, I want to publically apologize to Mary Horne, the photographer, for taking her hard work and applying my own edits to her beautiful craft. I did not want to offend, or use her art to cut her down and make myself more exposed. I cannot express enough with these images how much I loved working with all of these ladies, and I am so, so proud of the results, and humbled to have been a part of it. So in my humbled state, I'd like to share how important it is to respect artists work. When a photographer puts so much time an effort into a final image, from work on the day of the photoshoot, to edits after, and sharing the images with collaborators, and on social media, don't try to make someone else's art your own for personal gain. It's rude, and why I was honestly embarrassed when I realized what I had done.
For the record: Instagram likes to crop my posts on my android, so I put a frame on this picture to ensure this full beautiful image was displayed, that is my only work on this photo. To repeat, I only did it to show the full image.
