How lovely it is to receive feedback from our happy customers, whether it be a lovely little email, a phone call to say thanks or a surprise gift at the studio door. We love when our customers are happy. It makes us smile.
I thought it would be lovely to blog some of the feedback we get. So you can smile along with us.
“When I decided to have my children photographed, it was never about dressing them up in silly costumes and sitting them in oversized flower pots, or forcing them to sit still through a stiff family portrait session. It was only ever about one thing…. love.
You know that beautifully innocent look that your baby spontaneously gives you which just brings you to your knees. It catches your breath and you melt with overwhelming love. It was this look that I wanted captured forever in a timeless photograph. The photographer I chose would be charged with the enormous responsibility of capturing that look so that for the rest of my life I would fall in love with my children all over again each time I looked at these photos. And even more importantly, I wanted my grown children to see themselves as babies and see in a photo all the love our family shared. When I am gone there will be no words, only these pictures, and I needed them to say that my children were loved, so loved.
And so the photograher I chose was Susan Darcy.
I let Susan into the sanctuary of my family to capture us together in the beautiful simplicity of our everyday life. I trusted her completely with what I wanted and at times during the photoshoot I hardly even noticed she was there. My children loved Susan and we were all relaxed enough to just be ourselves and have fun together.
And there it was. The look. Susan had found it, and when I saw it in her photographs it hit me like a freight train and left me weeping with tears. And I fell in love with my children all over again.
Thank you Susan, for giving my family this timeless and precious gift that we will treasure always. I could not have asked for more.
Thanks Donna for your wonderful feedback, it was an absolute pleasure capturing your family.
