I love my clients. And I think the feeling is mutual. They keep saying nice things and I love the excitement when they see their photos for the first time after a session. Today I was thinking about how we ended up in this mutual love-fest, and I have a hunch it's because we value the same things and have similar goals -- whether intuitively or consciously -- when we book a session for their family.
Thank you for being you. Thank you for letting me see you, and make images for you of your wonderful family: fun loving, wild, quiet, and silly. You invite me into these precious moments and I'm so grateful. Thank you.
Over 6-years ago I photographed Philip and Lidia getting married. They had a beautiful wedding to match their relationship--filled with laughter, beauty, and a wonderful time with friends and family.
Fast forward to this fall, and I received a message from Philip: they were expecting. And unknown to Lidia, he had booked a maternity session for her while they were in town over Christmas.
What a delight to watch as she drove up to the session, Philip and I waiting for her to arrive. She rolled down the window, beautiful smile on her face, and said, "Is that Christine Lee Smith?" We spent their session taking photos of the three of them and catching up from the past several years.
Such a joy to see these two doing so well, and growing into a beautiful family! Congrats you two!
Old friends, catching up, taking photos. I had a great time with the Burns family the other weekend. With both girls grown up, working and finishing senior year at university, their family has changed, transitioned, grown up. Hearing about all the adventures of school and job changes, moving houses, coming home made the experience of photographing them in the freezing cold, seeing their laughter, their hugs, their silliness made it all more special.
Thank you Burns' for a wonderful session, and for catching up with me after these years on our own separate journeys!
