I met this girl named Amanda just months before her own wedding day. She was attending another wedding that I was photographing and she came up to compliment me on some of my work that she had seen. I knew right away that we could be the best of friends! It makes me so excited that she actually came up to me and shared those compliments. It is one of the most powerful things someone can do to an artist and small business owner. It’s hard. There are a lot of moments that I feel like a failure and a few moments that I feel like a champ. You know what gets me through those failing moments? compliment just like Amanda’s that night. Every email, every Facebook message, every text, phone call, voicemail that I get where a client (or stranger in this case) has gone out of their way to tell me how much they like my work, are the reasons that I made the leap to full time photographer just months ago. They are the reason that I don’t give up and I don’t get down on myself. For each and every one of you (and you know who you are!)… thank you. Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU, from the bottom of my oversized, emotional, holiday loving, heart. I truly feel like I’ve been blessed with the most amazing clients and the Kramer family is nothing less than one of those amazing clients!
