HEATHER & LIAM | A MINI SESSION

I WALKED AWAY FROM THIS SESSION THINKING THAT CLIENT IS GOING TO BE MY FRIEND. SOMETIMES YOU JUST CONNECT WITH PEOPLE AND IT FEELS LIKE YOU KNOW THEM WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING WHY.

AND SO YESTERDAY, I SAT DOWN FOR COFFEE WITH MY NEW FRIEND. A FELLOW PHOTOGRAPHER, HEATHER HACKNEY. WE TALKED ALL THINGS WORK, WE LAUGHED ABOUT THE LITTLE NUANCES OF OUR WORK AND THE FAMILIES WE WORK WITH. WE SHARED OUR GRATITUDE THAT WE TRULY HAVE THE BEST JOB & HOW AMAZING OUR CLIENTS ARE. WE TALKED ABOUT HOW SOME SESSIONS JUST FLOW AND I REMINDED HER THAT HERS WAS ONE OF THOSE FOR ME. I FELT LIKE I HAD SAT DOWN FOR COFFEE WITH AN OLD FRIEND.

THAT IS HONESTLY HOW I FEEL ABOUT MY CLIENTS. THEY BECOME FRIENDS.

I AM DRIVEN BY CONNECTION. THAT IS A VERY IMPORTANT PIECE OF MY WORK. WHETHER WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH EACH OTHER FOR YEARS OR IT IS THE FIRST TIME MEETING I WANT TO CONNECT WITH YOU. BUT WHAT I WANT MOST IS FOR YOU TO CONNECT WITH ONE ANOTHER. IT IS MY ROLE TO CREATE THE SPACE FOR YOU TO DO SO BUT IT IS YOUR ROLE TO LET GO AND LEAN INTO ONE ANOTHER.

GRATEFUL FOR MY NEW FRIEND HEATHER & FOR THE INSPIRING LOVE THAT HER AND HER SWEET LIAM SHARE TOGETHER.
