The Power of a Simple Edit

Things are changing around my house--the new baby is due any day, and India Jane had her first day of preschool today.  I did one of those quick stand-right-here-and-smile snapshots as we were running out the door, so this image does lack vision and creativity of composition, etc. But sometimes, I just don't care about being too creative, I just want to capture a moment.  My little almost-three-year old's first big day at school!

The notable thing from a photographer's or client's perspective here is how careful editing can take a simple snapshot from boring to kinda special. 

Happy first day at school, India Jane!
