We love getting feedback from our clients in regard to our photography shoots, we especially love hearing how fun it was for them and their family.
This family lived on a fabulous property in Cockatoo in Melbourne’s east. They had two very sweet children, a little boy and a little girl. The little boy took to me immediately, wanting to take me on a tour around their even more fabulous house (his bedroom was built into the attic, how cool hey?). Instead I took some time taking the little girl into her room and getting her to show me around her things and getting to know her, before too long she was relaxed and telling me all about her favorite toys. We spent some time photographing each child in their rooms before heading into their garden which was a photographers dream (I joked to mum I was bringing all my future clients there). When the session finally came to an end after lots of chatter and laughter the kids asked when I’d be back, i explained I had my own children I needed to get home to! ‘go pick them up and bring them here to play some more’ they said. So incredibly sweet.
here is an email I received from their mum….
I wanted to thankyou for the truly beautiful timeless pictures of my children.that will be treasured for a lifetime. I can’t wait to get them so that they can take pride of place on my wall and I can look at them everyday. Looking at all your gorgeous pictures, not only of my children but of all your photograph’s, I think the difference with your photography is that you seem to capture something extra. The picture tells a story and I think manages to capture the child’s spirit. When I look at your pictures of children, I find I can’t help but smile.
I have had the usual children’s portraits done in the past but they lack what you have managed to capture. They really don’t compare. I think part of this is how you work with the child in such a fun and relaxed manner. I am sure that my children think you were there as a play date for them and have even since asked when you are coming back. I was also amazed at the amount of time you spent taking the pictures and getting to know the children and I really didn’t expect you to drive all the way to our house in Cockatoo. I also want to thankyou for your patience with me as I took so long trying to decide what pictures to purchase as they were all beautiful and I never felt rushed or pressured.
We will definitely be calling you for our future portraits.
