I have always found it interesting those that choose to have that over the top fancy photography session done, I have often wondered how many of those sessions actually lead to the client really building a great relationship on a "family like level" with their photographer? As a photographer I suppose I feel that this is where the line is drawn between a passion/love for the business and results versus the results driven business ( making money $$$). Now don't get me wrong, Yes, I want to make money for something I am passionate about that I freelance in a business fashion but I also need to be able to match your vision. I took in some personal perspective on this topic after looking back over type of photography I was nervous to start shooting - Newborns.
There is so much that goes into newborn photography that most wouldn't think of such as ; the time schedule for mom & baby, the outfits, the positions, feeding time, temperature of the space/room, equipment, emotional state ( of the baby), Props for the baby to be positioned in, lighting and well the list goes on but I am sure you get it. Taking in to account the newborn sessions I have done and some sessions that I have seen others post images from their lavish sessions with their type of photographer. But the client/ photographer relationship is what I have always appreciated the most about this passion I chase after and make a reality. However the realization that my clients really are where my story begins is the best part, I cannot express how much I appreciate that and the opportunity that they provide for growth in my work but also in their personal lives....
Thankfully, I have had the opportunity to work with some of the greatest creations to have graced this earth and I could not be more thankful that I still get to watch these kids grow. Its one thing to just be a photographer, but another to feel like you really are apart of something much larger than freeze framing a moment in time.
Now we cannot forget the French Family!
Oh where to start with Jimmy and April - these two are the best couple as a husband and wife team - not mention killing it in the parenting department! This wonderful couple have two of the sweetest and wonderful children that god has blessed them - Oliver and Isabelle are proof that love really is a beautiful thing.
Alright-Alright, enough of the mushy talk - the real message here is that I LOVE my clients and the experiences that I have been able to gain as a photographer to help myself to grow are just results of the same growth I get to witness with these wonderful long term clients.
