In honor of my 25th Annie-versary... every month I am going to showcase a client that has a been with me pretty much ever since I relocated here to MN in the early 2000's. Anyone who sticks with me year after year deserves a little recognition don't you think? If it weren't for my amazing clients, I would probably be doing who knows what. I love my job so much and creating images and memories for my clients. But what I love even more than creating pretty pictures is the relationships that I have made with them over the years. When I say that I treat them like family and they become like family... I am not kidding.
So here is the first of a few of such amazing families.
Oh, what can I even say about this family? I truly love them.
I remember our very first session together. They had me come to their home to photograph their newborn Julia. She couldn't go out in public yet so we created some sweet shots in their home. I had no clue how very special my relationship with this family would become. Lisa and Mark are two of the nicest people on this planet (and it's a damn big planet!) They are raising 3 amazing kids that I have truly enjoyed photographing and watching grow up through the years. I got to work with Olivia a couple summers ago for her senior photos... now if that doesn't make me feel old! And this next year I will get to work with Thomas. (sorry dude... you gotta put up with me just a little longer).
My biggest fear when creating relationships with these families is that one day the kids grow up and they stop calling. That they grow out of needing photos. What I am hoping is that they still call and when those kiddos start getting married and having babies of their own (yes Lisa.. this WILL eventually happen), that I will get to start the process all over again. and again. and again.
Love you dearly Baskfield family. Each and every one of you!
