It is those unexpected moments that can literally just make a day, a week, a year. Last week we were in the car driving when I heard the email ding on my phone. To be honest, I am getting really good at ignoring that ding, especially when we are “out of the office” (or else it literally would consume our lives). I ignored it, but Ryan started reading an email to me. Ryan knows by now that if he chooses to read the email when I ignore it that he should only share it with me if it is “really good!” As he began to read the email and then continued to read the whole thing, I was thinking “wow, this must be really good.” And that it was.
It was an email from a special couple that we had photographed the night before. By the end of the email, I was in tears. Literally, I was driving down to Annapolis with eyes full of tears. It was one of those moments where I felt like we were doing something right and everything that we set out to do during our session with that couple was accomplished. You see, it is always our goal to be more than “just photographers.” We want to be life changers and give people an opportunity to escape the everyday craziness of life to soak in each other! After a photo session we want our couples and other clients to feel more in love than ever and to know that they are blessed in a special way to live the life they do.
Our special couple who wrote that special note reaffirmed that we did exactly what we set out to do! There is something incredibly soul satisfying about having someone tell you you have reached your goal and have done it well…. Especially when that goal goes above and beyond “just” providing amazing photos!
As you know, we have been crazy busy with travel, photo shoots, and pulling the finishing touches together for our new brand launch! WAHOOO! We have been a little quiet on the blog as we get everything together. It is CRAZY around here. But moments like we had last week was certainly an amazing validation to exactly what we are doing and why we are doing it! Words can make a huge impact on the lives of others and we are beyond grateful for the words our special couple shared with us last week!
Hope you find a minute today to share a grateful word with some special! Who knows… it might make their day, week, year…?!
