Have I ever told you how much your business means to me?
Aside from the fact that when you book me to capture your special moments you help me pursue my passion, I really do start to feel like a part of your world!
I am there for births and marriages and milestones, for birthdays and celebrations.
I get to meet your family and friends.
I get to see you grow and develop and I get to watch your children grow into adults. I capture them from baby bumps to toddlers and then into young ladies and gentlemen.
It really is an honour!
I am extremely glad that you have stuck with me as I have grown and developed as an artist. We all have to start our journey somewhere and I am glad you choose me and that you loved your first shoot as much as you loved your most recent one, even if that first shoot makes me cringe a little when I look back on it. I would like to think that shows growth on my behalf and good foresight and faith on yours.
While I have many repeat clients that I have photographed two or three times, I have a couple of special ones that have chosen to work with me from early on in my career to now, some spanning several shoots over several years. I really just wanted to take the time to thank those wonderful clients for having faith in my art and helping my career dreams come true!
My first ever paying clients have now had a total of six shoots including family sessions, 21st birthdays and engagement sessions with a wedding booked for 2017! I swear half my clients in my first years of business were through the good recommendations these guys gave me. It has been a real honour to watch these girls grow from teenagers to beautiful women and to very soon capture one of them on her wedding day....be prepared for an emotional, and somewhat old feeling, photographer!
The Squires Clan!
Who would have ever thought that dumping a bucket of molasses on the head of a pretty young lady could be so good for business! This shoot with the lovely Jasmin has led to a total of eight shoots from various family members in just 18 months. I have now met so many of the Squires family I am starting to feel like one of them. I have captured baby bumps and newborns, engagements, weddings and family sessions. It has, and continues to be, an absolute pleasure to be included in so many of your special occasions.
One of my very early clients and the inspiration for this blog!
How very special it is for me to be able to capture your beautiful girls as they grow from toddlers to ladies. Always willing to welcome me onto the family farm to make and capture memories that will hopefully be cherished by you all for many years to come.
To everyone else who has ever honoured me and my art form by paying me to do something I absolutely love to do:
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
You have turned a hobby into a career and for that I could not be more grateful! You have stuck with me in good times and bad as I waded my way through my photographic journey and I hope you continue to stick with me as that journey continues.
Slightly emotional photographer who has the best clients and just felt the need to tell them so
