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.

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.

Keeping in the Heat.

So I've already shown you THE SCARF, and now here is the hat Danica from Danichka knitted me.  Can I just tell you that creativity flows from this girl.  I love the color combination she came up with on this hat.  And those flowers added the PERFECT touch.Also, take note of the background...more to come on that with my super awesome senior session I have tomorrow.  My senior came over and helped me put together this super cool backdrop and added a touch of her own flare to it.  This session is entitled, "An Artist", and I cant' wait to show you her fun, spunky and classic personality.
