I received a message from one of my clients this morning. It brought tears to my eyes. I felt the need to share.
“I can’t even tell you how happy I am. I was all in to force it [our session] back in May; it was your honest gut that put the brakes on it. I am so thankful that you did. Other people wouldn’t base a shoot on ‘feel’ and would just want to make a sale; you lead with your emotions and honesty which is why we keep coming back over and over. It’s about more than just a person behind a lens; it’s about someone who understands you, your family, and how to get the most out of making a permanent thumbprint of that time in that family’s life. Every little expression and playful moment defines our family, and you got them all! Even the super tight neck hugs that she only gives me; I only ever get to feel them. Now I get to see just how much happiness it puts on my face when I get them. I just love that perspective!
So, once again I owe all my thanks to you for capturing what I think are our best photos to date!!! You are one of a kind, a class act, a talent beyond words. Thank you for being you.”
This meant so much to me to hear. I hope you take the time to tell people when who they are or what they do matters to you. It’s amazing how your kind words can impact someone.
