HEATHER & LIAM | A MINI SESSION

I WALKED AWAY FROM THIS SESSION THINKING THAT CLIENT IS GOING TO BE MY FRIEND. SOMETIMES YOU JUST CONNECT WITH PEOPLE AND IT FEELS LIKE YOU KNOW THEM WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING WHY.

AND SO YESTERDAY, I SAT DOWN FOR COFFEE WITH MY NEW FRIEND. A FELLOW PHOTOGRAPHER, HEATHER HACKNEY. WE TALKED ALL THINGS WORK, WE LAUGHED ABOUT THE LITTLE NUANCES OF OUR WORK AND THE FAMILIES WE WORK WITH. WE SHARED OUR GRATITUDE THAT WE TRULY HAVE THE BEST JOB & HOW AMAZING OUR CLIENTS ARE. WE TALKED ABOUT HOW SOME SESSIONS JUST FLOW AND I REMINDED HER THAT HERS WAS ONE OF THOSE FOR ME. I FELT LIKE I HAD SAT DOWN FOR COFFEE WITH AN OLD FRIEND.

THAT IS HONESTLY HOW I FEEL ABOUT MY CLIENTS. THEY BECOME FRIENDS.

I AM DRIVEN BY CONNECTION. THAT IS A VERY IMPORTANT PIECE OF MY WORK. WHETHER WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH EACH OTHER FOR YEARS OR IT IS THE FIRST TIME MEETING I WANT TO CONNECT WITH YOU. BUT WHAT I WANT MOST IS FOR YOU TO CONNECT WITH ONE ANOTHER. IT IS MY ROLE TO CREATE THE SPACE FOR YOU TO DO SO BUT IT IS YOUR ROLE TO LET GO AND LEAN INTO ONE ANOTHER.

GRATEFUL FOR MY NEW FRIEND HEATHER & FOR THE INSPIRING LOVE THAT HER AND HER SWEET LIAM SHARE TOGETHER.

lets get started

"We treasure the photos and film Jessica + Ben created for our family. They captured the beautiful magic in our "every day real life" and articulated everything incredible about seemingly ho hum moments. For us, those feel like the ones we want to remember forever (and ever). We felt so comfortable the whole time, they have such a calming presence that made it feel like we could really be ourselves- we ended up with so many treasures. They have given us a way to look back on real life exactly how we want to remember it. We laughed a lot too- Beyond talented artists, beyond awesome people. We couldn't be happier or more grateful!"
