It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged, so I’m going to back track a little bit.
As a photographer, there are few things more satisfying than having a returning client want you to take their pictures again. It’s the ultimate validation that you are doing a pretty good job. Add to the mix that the returning client is a fellow photographer, and woa. Now that is an amazing feeling! But that’s not really why I love return clients so much. For me, I love getting to watch these families grow year after year. I love getting to see the children again after a few months or a year, and seeing not only how much older they look but getting to hear about all of the wonderful new things that they are doing! I love getting to see how each family member has grown individually in some way or another, and how they have grown together to become even stronger as a family. And I especially love when I get to meet the new members who have been added since our last session!!
I had the huge honor of photographing the Holck family last fall – right around the time that both Heather and I found out that we were each expecting! – and I was so excited when they wanted updated family pictures again this year! Heather is also an awesome photographer (Check out her work here! She’s amazing!), so I was thrilled that she agreed to do a session swap with me so that we could get updated pictures with our little one, as well.
