I met up with a client’s mom this evening to explain what way might be easier when it came time to order. While I was there, she and her daughter got me a gift. Can I just say that I was surprised and blessed. They didn’t have to do that, I don’t expect anyone to do that, you know? But it blessed me and I wanted to make sure that I thanked them on my blog. I don’t have to say who it was, they know. I’ve also been thinking a little bit about explaining why I do some things that I do, why I charge what I charge, but what has stopped me is the how to say it.
I would like to think that anyone who has spent time with me, while I’m photographing your family, that you have seen my heart.
I’m not doing this to make a lot of money, it’s nice, but not my main goal. My goal is to make hearts happy. To bring smiles and laughter to your hearts. Each picture that you see in your galleries is a true extension of my heart. When I take your photographs, sometimes I have a vision in my head, sometimes I get happy little accidents that make me go, “yay!!” lol What I do after that is like what an artist does with paint and a canvas. I edit from my heart.
Looking back to my teen years, I am truly amazed at what serving God has done to my life. Never in a million years would I have dreamed that I would be working with total strangers, then becoming life long friends with some of them. Never…..only my close friends and family know how shy I was and how much I feared driving in strange places. Now, I’m meeting new people, taking Senior pictures and driving to places that are 3-4 hours away…by myself. (okay, that last part…yay that still freaks me out.) lol
Anyway…..long story, but it was time for me to share my heart.
Thanks again to MJ and S…..you’ve made a lasting impression on my heart. (((hugs)))
