Client Share: Canvas Wall Display
I was visiting a client last weekend, who also happens to be a good friend. We were there for her eldest son's 5th birthday party. Her son and my daughter have known each other since they were in daycare together. They were in the same infant room, toddler room, and pre-school room, before they parted ways when my daughter started attending her current school.
The party was supposed to be outdoors, but we had a heck of a rain storm that day, so instead, the party was moved inside. When we arrived at their home, you can imagine my delight to see photos that I'd taken of her and her family, all over her walls. Okay, it wasn't a surprise, because I was there when she ordered the large prints for her walls, but it is nonetheless nice to see your work proudly on display at a client's home. Cue in warm fuzzy feelings.
Anyway, I asked her if I could take a quick snap of one of her wall displays, and she agreed. I did both her maternity shots and her newborn shots for baby #2, and she ordered a few canvases from both sessions and came up with this lovely display:
Baby #2, by the way, has grown SO MUCH since I last saw him. It always blows my mind how much babies change (and I am in a business where I see said change quite often). Whenever parents ask me if they should get photos at newborn or at a later stage in life, I always say both. And I'm not saying that because I'd end up with two sessions. I say that because, quite honestly, your baby will change SO MUCH in the span of a few months, that it really IS worth capturing that change. Even now, as a mom of a 5-year-old, I'm starting to feel some serious nostalgia, as I look at my daughter, who now stands up to the middle of my chest. I still remember when she was at bum level, and gave me fabulous leg hugs. Or when she used to fit on the length of my forearm. Oh dear...I'm getting verklempt.
Fellow parents, you know exactly what I mean. And parents-to-be, you'll know exactly what I mean. When people tell you that time does go by in the blink of an eye, it really is true. Cherish you babies, and keep them close.
Peace, love, and pics.
