I really do find some amazing clients - or maybe they find me! But I love hearing their stories and creating images that capture who they are together.
Erica contacted me for a family portrait session and listened as I explained the process. She was excited about the session and about updating their family pictures. You see, she truly values portraits - she has them all throughout her home and gets excited about new ones.
After the session, she shared with me that as much as she loves her kids, she knows her family is not complete. She was on bedrest with her daughter and can't take a chance with another pregnancy. But that's okay... she has always had it in her heart to adopt. Yes, she is creating a home filled with love and children and all around her home you see how much she cherishes her family.
But what impressed me the most was her desire to be a part of a foster to adopt program. She wants to bring home another child - not a baby (babies are in high demand), but a child. A child who may not otherwise find a home.
I was very touched by this. The thing is, I connect with the people whose images I capture. I am a storyteller, but I'm also a listener. I love learning about the people behind the smiles. And I'm fascinated by the fact that some of the most amazing people seek me out for their portraits.
I look forward to creating more gorgeous heirloom images for this family when they have brought a new member into their family. And I look forward to sharing that story...
