One of the best parts of being a photographer is the sweet families I get to meet. I’ve always considered myself to be shy and reserved…but there is something about the camera that makes that part of me disappear. I feel so in my element and conversation just happens naturally; thankfully! If anyone knows me I can be pretty awkward at times.
I think it also has to do with the fact that my clients are amazing; I had never met this family before but when we spoke on the phone before their session it was literally like talking to an old friend. I can give thanks to Melissa for that because she was so welcoming and just easy to talk to.
I also love that she sent me a picture of their Christmas cards using these portraits…which I LOVED. They picked the perfect pictures and the perfect design.
This image is definitely because of her mommy! I could not get her to smile for me…I wasn’t winning her over; even with cookies! But Melissa was able to get her to giggle and I was all over it and it was so worth it!
