Clients who make me happy

I have been blessed with great clients over the past 3 1/2 years I've been in business. My clients honestly have become friends of mine too. I have been thinking today about them (you) and they (you) put a smile on my face.A few things they have done that make me smile: Thank you letters in the mail: One girl sent me a thank you note that she had made. She loves to do scrap book stuff and and made me a beautiful card. I so appreciated her creativeness. Last year some sweet clients gave me a basket full of my favorite things, and I was totally blown away. It made me tear up. I was so thankful for them. Sweet letters from wedding clients Recently a client told me how excited her husband was AFTER the session. Yes, after! I love hearing that. He had so much fun with his family taking pictures that he looks forward to doing it again. I am NOT making this up either. Cross my heart. Another fun thing I love about my clients is I get to go to Zumba with them :) SO FUN! I love learning from my clients too. When I'm photographing them, I'm looking further into who they are as they connect with each other. When I see a deep connection, it makes me want to know them more and be apart of their family.

I might be rambling a little, but I was just thinking of you today and I wanted to say thanks for being wonderful clients and further more for your friendship. Have a blessed day my friends.

New Mexico and Texas Photographer-Music.Camera.Graduates

This morning I woke up in a [panic] because I remembered I wanted to update my Senior Music playlist. I don't know names of songs, or music artist and I was having a hard time thinking of great songs that make ya want to dance. Thanks for facebook because I had lots of people give their suggestions, creating a very fun and energetic playlist for my two H.S seniors today. Here are some from the playlist people suggested: Another One Bites the Dust-Queen Rapper's Delight-Sugarhill Gang Barracuda-Fergie Tik Tok-Ke$ha Down-Jay Sean According to You-Orianthi

Thank you so so much friends for your suggestions. First senior is Laura-beautiful girl and sweet family Second senior is Stephany-she is the senior who won the senior giveaway back in the fall. Another beautiful girl with a great dad and supporting boyfriend :)

Today while Benson has been sleeping, I have gone through some of my family, kids, babies, and maternity sessions to update my portrait website.Go check it out! You might be on there if I've done a session for you!

And yesterday I had a session with one of the sweetest little boys.  He would hug on me and climb up in my lap while I was taking his pictures.  Such a sweet heart.  He reminded me of my little BB.

Sarah.McKinney, Tx Bride. Texas Photographer [full post]

The full post...Sarah's wedding theme was "vintage".  I think she created that beautifully with her dress, hair, jewelry and makeup. We went to Chestnut Square in McKinney, Tx for part of her bridal shoot.  We had Sarah's hair stylist with us and it was so nice.  She fixed Sarah's hair several different ways with different flowers in her hair.  I was spoiled having her there!  It made me  wish I had a stylist for ALL of my sessions.

Tonight after Benson went to sleep I sat at my computer editing through some images from Sarah's bridal session back in November. I have about 20 something images to share and I can't wait to do that tomorrow. So, stay tuned and have a great night.sc_1033blog
