Appleton Wisconsin Photographer
Connecting with families for their fall family portraits is one of my favorite times of the year. The colors are always so fun and the sunlight always seems extra special. I think what struck me most this year though, what how special family portraits, in and of themselves actually are.
As a professional photographer, one of hundreds if not thousands within driving distance from my studio doors, I am honored when a family inquires with me. Photography is a luxury service, one that might not happen each and every year for a growing family. I know this, because it doesn’t happen each year for my own. I often wonder how (and how much) to educate my clients about the value of photography and the special place it holds in my heart. Being part of this artistic community is a wonderful adventure. The pace at which technology has progressed is wild! But we are still artists at heart, sharing what we love to do with those who are ready and willing to stand in front of our cameras.
Someday, hopefully soon, I will spend some time jotting down more of my thoughts about just how dang great it is being a photographer. How working with clients fuels my soul and forces me to step out of my comfort zone to educate about this fast paced workforce that is so easily accessible to anyone who would like to join. But for now, I’m just going to revel in these beautiful family portraits and the magic of the season!
