When I started my business, I didn’t know if it would become more than a hobby or if it’d fizzle out after a year. So with each booking, I’d ooh-and-aah. At the end of each client shoot, I’d marvel at the fact that I was able to do something I love and someone liked my work enough to pay for it. It still blows my mind sometimes. Maybe it’s from the kind of childhood I had (cue violin – haha), but it’s with this kind of attitude that makes me want to improve and continue to grow. Complacency is a virus I never want to have.
So this brings me to my recent shoot with The L Family.
I’ve been photographing Julie, Chris, Callie and Ian for 8 years. Each year, I am excited when they book their shoot (and Julie books early too – yay!) And each year, I can’t wait to see them. I have watched Callie get braces and get them off! I’ve watched her become a preteen. I’ve watched Ian grow into an inquisitive boy who starts most conversations with “You know what?” 😉
Seeing my clients is seeing old friends. I am grateful. <3
