Posts like this usually start with, “Repeat clients are the best clients!” That is true. But it’s more with these folks.
Tony and Ashley have trusted me 4 times to document their family’s life. Starting when I was a very new photographer, I photographed them with their first (and only at the time) son Reid. Two years later, Beau was born, and we wrapped him up in a bow! And in the following two years, they sold their house and Ashley became pregnant again with sweet baby Henry who you will see below.
Over the years, I’ve watched the boys grow and develop personalities of their own. Reid has remained sweet, and always willing to smile for “Miss Carolyn”. Beau has grown (almost as big as his older brother!) into an adorable little boy who is typically carrying around a truck and wearing a superhero costume. I’ve seen Ashley (a fabulous designer in Tallahassee) refine her taste and expand her business. I’ve watched them grow too big for their beloved house on Terrace St, and move a few miles up the road to a bigger space and an ongoing project for Ashley (ya know, for her to do in all of her spare time in between raising 3 boys and running her own business..).
These people aren’t just repeat clients. They are friends, who have welcomed me into their lives, and I have been so grateful.
