One of the greatest compliments clients give me is referring their friends to me but even greater than that is when previous clients return. Erica and Joseph first came to my studio with their daughter, Sadie, for her six month portrait photography session and again at one year. At the time Sadie was born, Erica and I had not yet met. It wasn’t until Sadie’s one year portrait session premiere when we sat together to design an album for Sadie with the images from both sessions that the value of the experience of custom portrait photography became apparent. Erica’s eyes tenderly filled with tears and I was certain they were tears of joy and happiness. Erica shared with me her experience during Sadie’s newborn session that she had done at a retail department store. I was astonished and now understood her tears were of disappointment of not knowing of a studio specializing in newborn portrait photography that could offer her the experience I have designed for my clients. She was saddened at the missed opportunity but elated we were able to connect to capture Sadie’s first year milestones like sitting upright, walking, and jumping into her first piece of cake. Erica and Joseph value capturing these tender moments as much as I do and this warms my heart and fuels my love for this art.
This fall, Erica, Joseph, and Sadie returned to my studio to capture another phenomenal milestone – the promotion of Sadie to big sister. When I learned their family was expecting, I became so happy for them because I knew I was going to be a part of something so special. I had the pleasure of photographing Erica in my studio recently and the excitement and anticipation of their newest baby girl is palpable. Sadie already loves her little sister so much and adored hugging, kisses, (and poking) at her mommy’s belly. This little girl is going to be welcomed into the world with an adoring family and I couldn’t be happier for all of them. I cannot wait to meet this precious little girl and photograph her first year of milestones too.
