May I speak candidly?
Every year that passes I say pretty much the same thing (perhaps with fewer words). I mention about how, without our wedding couples and families that stop by our studio and all those individuals that patron our business, we would not be as successful as we are. Blah blah blah.
I suppose its the equivalent of saying "I love you" to your grandmother, cousin or partner. You can say it all the time, it becomes almost routine... and yet... you mean it just as much as the first time you've ever said it. Well, the same can be true here. I have had returning married couples for growing family sessions such as newborns and lifestyle sessions. I have seen couples book us for Wedding Photography only to pass along our name to another couple who also needed us for a wedding, and the couples whom referred us hadn't even experienced what we offered. So much faith, trust, and commitment from those couples. I was speechless. Its not everyday an individual (let alone a couple or family) trust a person(s) or business enough to refer them to another without thinking twice.
So every year when we say "Thank You" and "We Love You", it may be said once a year (or more), but those words we speak are just as meaningful and sincere as the first year we had in business. Here is to 2015 and to an even greater year coming up. 2016 here we come!
Happy Holidays With Love,
