Caroline contacted us to schedule a maternity session in the field, and scheduled a newborn session as well for when her daughter arrived. She and her husband Blair came to the studio all the way from north Alpharetta for a maternity fitting, and I was treated to listening to their very cool Australian accents! They're from Perth and here in the states working. I'll definitely be contacting Caroline in a few years for some insider tips when we take an anniversary trip to Down Under.
I love working with so many clients from all over the world. Most of you know from watching my video that I have a hearing impairment, so I have an accent also. Understanding clients and communicating with them is never an issue, and we've had a couple clients in the studio who have only been speaking English for a year or so. We always find a way to communicate. The beautiful thing about photography is that it doesn't need words. It just needs emotion and mutual basic understanding. I absolutely love meeting and working with clients from all over the world. So far we've had clients from England, Australia, Nigeria, Botswana, Japan, China, Korea, Germany, France, and Malaysia. I can't wait to see what other countries will be represented in our studio this year.
Caroline chose to add on hair and makeup services with our HMUA Margaret for her maternity session. We met at the field on a humid summer night. Blair is a very stoic kind of guy that doesn't enjoy being in front of the camera, but with a few jokes and getting snuggled up to his wife, he started smiling and having fun. Some of my favorite images from this session are the ones at the very end, when Caroline and Blair were standing looking at each other as the sun set. Unprompted, she reached up to touch her husband's face, and it was magic. These are the real moments that I live for, and the moments that show who you are as a couple. The moments that you can show to your child printed out where your child can see how much you loved each other and how tender you were with each other while waiting for their arrival.
If you're pregnant and looking for a newborn or maternity photographer, I would love to work with you to create images that you will love for a lifetime. Be sure to view this short 1.5 minute film to hear about my philosophy and see how I work in the studio so you can determine if I'm the right fit for you. I can't wait to meet you!
