It is an absolute honor and privilege to get an email after a meeting and see the words, we would love to book you. And that is really how you all put it. It’s not we want to use you, it’s not consider yourself booked, or I am sending you the contract, it is almost always something like we would love to book you, we can’t imagine our day without you. It’s truly the best email I get…aside from the last one, where you tell me how much you love your photos. Anyway, off topic. It’s already an honor and privilege to be booked, but when your own industry peer tells you that he and his wife are expecting and would like you to do their maternity photos, you get a way bigger warm and tingly feeling inside…while most of it is excitement, the other part is nervousness. No matter what, you own the fact that you were the one they picked so you must be doing something they love. So, we set up the session, and even though we were hoping for soft yellow glowy light and the day gave us clouds, we decided to make it work – because like Lee said it’s not always about that gorgeous magical light – sometimes it really is just about the moment and this stage in life. And I am pretty sure because he said that, the clouds parted to end the session and gave us some epic soft sun and beautiful skies to close out with. Melissa is absolutely stunning and glowing and I am so excited that these two are welcoming this little one and cannot wait to talk constantly with Lee at weddings about his little Elliana Grace.
Yeah…what’s the phrase? Rolling in the hay? Well, since that has already been done, Lee decided to play on it. I think he looks like Tony Hawk. Just needs a little skateboard.
