It's unfortunately far too easy for me to lose sight of where I started.
As I was reorganizing files recently, I stumbled across my first-year photography projects from college (circa 2009, 2010). As I matured as a photographer and student, I remember criticizing these images from my "humble beginnings" and only archiving them for sentimental purposes.
Five years later, I was so excited to see these old friends. Though not technically excellent, each image represents my eager start to this career path and so many amazing friends-turned-models that spent hours helping me produce each of them.
