ecstatic | personal

that’s the word to describe how i felt yesterday. i was so excited. i had been talking with her back and forth for a few weeks about when we could meet up. the day was finally here and i couldn’t wait. as soon as she walked in starbucks, i felt like we were long lost friends reuniting. we chatted about everything, including her big day. what we really meant a lot to me was when we started talking about photography. i literally wanted to get up and hug this girl. she made my life! she understood where i stood as a photographer. she looked at me and told me that she VALUED ME and VALUED my PHOTOGRAPHY! hey now! did Christmas come early?! that was, like, the sweetest most amazing thing anyone could have ever said to me. wow. i am still floored.

it means the world to me, when i have clients who believe in me and value me. it gives me the biggest smile knowing they trust me to capture their valuable memories that they will cherish in years to come. thank you! thank you! thank you! you all mean the world to me. thank you for believing in me and my dreams. thank you for valuing my work. thank you for having faith it me. clients/friends like y’all mean the world. i am so blessed to work with such amazing people. thank you! ♥
