I have photographed this beautiful family numerous times over the years. When this mama announced she was having her 4th baby, I was SO excited to have them in my Abbotsford studio! Four kids aged 7 and under! Ohhh Laaa Laaa!!! They packed up their kids in the car and headed out from Langley, all coordinated and perfectly behaved. I mean, seriously. It is quite the challenge to get 4 kids to look at the camera, but these sweeties did it with no problem! It was like they were born to model for me! We used a beautiful Mocha coloured back drop that was so warm and delicious. A perfect accompaniment to their casual jeans and white shirts.
We had a great time in the studio and this family was an honour to photograph. But the best part was a few weeks later when I delivered their beautiful canvases and heirloom albums to their home. That is always the best part! Mama’s always cry and touch the albums, tracing over their baby’s face. And I find clients want to immediately put the portraits up on their wall! It’s always so fun to see the spaces my clients have pre-determined to hang their wall art, because I’ve already had a glimpse of it at their ordering session. I use an amazing technology that allows clients to take a snap shot with their phone of any wall space they are considering hanging portraits from. I receive these images through the technology, and then measure their wall space in my computer. Then, when they come in to see their portraits for the first time, I pull up the snap shots they sent me, and I show clients their images on their wall space through my computer!!! It makes ordering fool proof and clients always order the correct size! So it was fun to see my client’s walls in person, the very walls she planned to display her portraits.
My goal is for clients to LOVE their portraits and for them to smile at them every day. It was so sweet when my client later emailed me this,
Words can not express our gratitude for the absolutely, amazing,
heartfelt photos that you have photographed for us. You truly are
incredibly talented and it is so evident in your work how much detail
that you put into every piece. You have captured everything that we
could have ever wanted and your photos are stunning!!! When I look at
all of our family photos that you have done it really makes our family
of six feel complete now. I arranged your gorgeous canvases on our
living room walls and we all just love them so much!!! I can’t wait to
bring your photo album to friends and family to show off all of your
hard work!! Thank you also so much for delivering them, the very
lovely story book for our baby (it brought some tears to my eyes reading
it), the treats and the beautiful card.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts”
I’m not crying…you are!!! Lol.
