I’m not a school photographer. It’s not that I have a problem with school photograph. It’s just that that’s not where I market myself.
It’s also not really my style. The whole posing in front of a static background, everyone looking the same, sorta deal.
In any case, a few years ago, I was really taking about any job I could get. I saw that a preschool was looking for a photographer, so I took the job.
I was in no way disappointed. That day I photographed about 8 children. I think that was really the perfect amount to make it worth my time, but not overwhelming.
The next year came, and not surprisingly, I didn’t hear anymore from them. Seriously, I didn’t expect it to be an ongoing relationship. I mean, that would have been awesome, but it was a small school and I really just thought that was it.
Imagine my surprise when the director/teacher emailed me this year! She wanted me to come back!
It’s true, repeat clients are the greatest compliment. I think it’s somehow more uplifting when you think a client has forgotten about you, then the contact you all “Remember me?”. I absolutely LOVE it!
So… Here are a few shots from that day. (this was also one of the only days in history that my husband has assisted me. His help was MUCH appreciated but it was a different experience having his help. Thanks darling!)
