It’s Thanksgiving, a day intended to reflect and give thanks for all of the blessing in our lives. Today I am thankful for you.
My heart is full to the brim as I think about all of the amazing folks we’ve had the opportunity to work with over the past five years. Whether it was at a wedding with oodles and oodles of people (I’m looking at YOU, Daira – you win for most guests so far!) or an intimate in-home maternity shoot (Caren Gillespie, you were the first!), I feel extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to cross paths with our wonderful clients.
Some of you have been with us from the beginning (big shout out to Shannon & Seth, The Bunkers, The Raos…) and some of you are brand new in the La Luz Family. And some of you are friends and family who choose me to do your photographs and give me the greatest compliment possible. I’m thankful for all of you and for the trust and confidence you have in us.
I know I say this a lot, but having the chance to photograph your families, your weddings, your engagements and newborns is truly one of the greatest joys of my life. It’s an honor that I was completely unprepared for. I started this business because I had a passion and a thrill that came from photographing everything from the big glamorous moments to the tiny small ones. I had no idea if it would work. I had no idea if people would choose me to be their photographer. But you did! You do!
Every time I book a shoot my heart swells. 5 years later, and my heart is still swelling. After finalizing each booking I sit at my desk excited about the shoot to come, and a little misty-eyed that you, my client, put faith in me to photograph you. That feeling of gratitude and honor will never get old. I am so moved because each and every one of our clients has helped my dream become a reality. I live my dream every day because of you.
So today as Ben, Henry and I celebrate Thanksgiving at home, just the three of us, I promise to take a moment to give thanks for our incredible La Luz family. I will give thanks for you.
