The biggest compliment I can get as a business owner is a returning client. I can hardly use the word client, because really I think about my clients as friends. That is my hope, that they become a friend of mine, that I know them, what they enjoy and what makes up their story. My photographer (Hi Liz!) has been taking my own family pictures for the last 6 years and it is SO fun and comforting to know she knows my family. I hope in 6 years, I have clients who I have been working with that long.
The Black family is a client that has quickly become friends of mine. I started last year with taking their family pictures in a mini session and we have continued to do sessions here and there with their daughter's two year pictures [which I totally still need to blog about], and now maternity and next up newborn. I basically cannot handle their cuteness. Both are totally hands-on parents and seem like experts in the field. I have a feeling they are going to rock at having their family grow by a little boy very, very soon.
