Sometimes people swoop into our lives on a whim and in the same swift fashion that they arrived they quickly disappear. Fortunately this was not the case with The Deacons. Our business relationship has evolved into quite a lovely friendship over the past several years. I am so proud of this family as I have had the honor of witnessing their engagement, their marriage and the expansion of their precious family. I have also been blessed to document some other momentous occasions for this family as well. One of the most inspiring being Mallory’s grandparents 50th wedding anniversary. Their story still warms my heart. This year as the family said goodbye one final time to their personal hero, Mr. Walter Porter I was blessed to document that moment fro them as well.

It’s always great to get a referral but it’s even more heart warming to welcome back repeat clients. I first met Jeremy and Jennifer when I photographed their gorgeous 2009 wedding. This Fall I got to meet their newest addition…cute little Colt. He is quite the ham. He was so full of happy smiles. The only challenge was…he is as quick as a lightning bolt! This little fella can launch forward and backward quicker than you can “say cheese.” ;-) But I honestly don’t think he ever quit smiling from the time that I said hello to him until the time they left. He is a super sweet little guy!
There is nothing more complimentary than a referral. It is the method by which I have grown my business over the years and it is, by far, the most rewarding way to meet new clients. I got an e-mail from an old high school friend (thanks Julie!) who had shared my work with a co-worker who had recently been blessed with a sweet baby girl. The Talley’s contacted me and we scheduled a session right away to get baby Kate in front of my camera. I was infatuated with her immediately…I mean just look at her…she is perfection. One of the most cooperative babies ever. She was such a great sleeper and just let me have my way without ever making a peep right up until the final shot. If only every newborn session were this easy. ;-)
I got a call from a Christina to tell me that we needed to book a session right away…they had received some amazing news in a short period of time. Her best friend Tara and her husband Sam had recently been blessed to adopt the perfect baby boy. I cleared my calendar and we spent the day catching up, laughing, talking and of course photographing the newest addition to the Magdalein family. He couldn’t have been more perfect! Even big sister Sophia agreed that Judah was indeed a delightful baby.
