Im currently in the middle of writing a blog about a few of the more important things I've learned over this past year that we've been in business, and one of them being the importance of returning customers and continuing to make them happier each time they come back. One of those customers for us is the Marshall family...Kurt, Aimee, and their beautiful daughter Tessa. Kurt and Aimee brought Tessa to us when she was a newborn, and have been back for two more photo shoots with another booked next month for some outdoor family shots. It's our returning customers that continue to use us for their photography needs, trust us with capturing those special and important times in their lives, that have helped make us as successful as we are today.
Since we're still not even a full year in yet, there are still jobs that we are getting that are new to us and we've gotten pretty good with stepping into unfamiliar territory and figuring out a way to get the shots we want. As was the case with Tessa's Christening this past weekend, we had no experience with shooting a Christening ceremony, yet we were more then confident we would be able to come out successful...and we did. We had Kurt and Aimee bring Tessa over to the studio a couple nights before to get a few shots of her all dressed up before the actual ceremony, which I edited for them so they could be printed out the next day. The day of the Christening we just did our thing, a camera in Sandi's hand and another in mine. Each of us had a good idea of what kind of shots we needed to get and where we would need to be to get them. The two of us have really started to work well together when both of us are shooting, including knowing which lenses to grab to compliment each other, and each of us have our favorites. With Tessa's Christening, Sandi went with more of the wide angle lens to cover the family shots, while I went with a longer lens and a more shallow depth of field. At the end of the day we were able to capture some great moments and some awesome memories for Kurt and Aimee.
I'll be posting the other blog Im working on within a few days hopefully, but Sandi and I want to thank Kurt and Aimee for continuing to come back to us, and we've taken good care of them in return, as we do with all our returning customers. We would also like to thank all of our returning customers that help us advertise our work and recommend us to their friends and family....words cant explain how much we appreciate you! Rather than rambling on anymore, I will leave you with some of the shots from Tessa Marshall's Christening! Enjoy!
