For the record, I'm just learning and a little hard on myself
Hilarity! At some points - please keep in mind that I have one of the most talented, patient mentors in photography who was willing to give up her and her daughter's time on a HOT Saturday evening!!!
When we arrived at the Botanicals, guess what I was missing.

Not so much one really cute one that I might want to frame. So I told Debbie, ultra traditional, ultra southern, gates, gardens, columns, you know straight out of a Southern Living and well I forgot that my kids are crazy and here's what that will get ya:

So, it is forever the learning process.
And in the meantime, I still will insist on hiring my favorite photographers, www.southernsoulstudio.com & www.clickphotodesigns.com!!
