I know I’ve said it time and time again, but one of the best parts of being a newborn photographer is getting to meet the most wonderful clients from Mount Washington and Louisville KY metro areas! BrieAnn had first contacted me in the spring of 2014 after reading a blog post on one of my mentors, Rachel Vanoven. She had been inspired by the post and just wanted to reach out to me to thank me for the post. I hadn’t written it for recognition, but it was so sweet that someone would do that after reading a short snippet from my timeline on this Earth. That should have been my first indication as to how wonderful this woman was.
Fast forward to the spring of 2015. BrieAnn was pregnant and on the hunt for a newborn photographer. I hadn’t realized when she contacted me the year before that she was local to me! Bonus! ❤ She actually put me through a rigorous series of questions and sampling of galleries with lots of back and forth over a few months. lol! After finally getting the call that she was ready to book, I was elated. However, In the back of my mind, I kind of felt like the bar had been set a little higher on this session and needed to up my game for some reason. 🙂
The Schmidt family was in for a surprise though! I had been dying to start offering Fresh 48 Sessions and now they had earned themselves a spot to be my guinea pig. It worked out perfect! Here’s a collage and slideshow from their Fresh 48.
Somehow I must have done something right because after her Fresh 48 and newborn sessions, she left the *sweetest* and most *heartfelt* review ever on my Facebook page:
“Pictures are very important to me, I love how they stop time, and capture memories and moments. That is exactly what Jennifer does! We had a fresh 48 session (everyone should book one) and a newborn session with Jennifer. I knew we would be a challenge for any photographer as our new baby was number 4. She was incredible with my three older kids during both sessions, and her talent with newborns is amazing. Jennifer has such a great personality you instantly become friends with her, all of my kids think she is awesome. I looked for months (over 6 truthfully) to find the right person for when our newest addition came, and as soon as I saw Jennifer’s work I knew she had to be the one I booked with! I’m over the moon in love with the pictures she took of our new arrival, Olivia. The fresh 48 captured her coming into our family so perfectly, every image is filled with happiness and shows the love and excitement of our family as it grew. Our newborn session with Jennifer was amazing. We have wonderful, beautiful, perfect images of our little girl, and our family. Pictures that I will treasure forever. Jennifer is a very talented artist. Everyone should book with Jennifer! Thank you so much!“
That is exactly why I do what I do. Clients that get it. Clients that understand why I take my time to meticulously pose their baby and to get the perfect shot. Clients that appreciate the artwork that I am able to produce for them that will be classic and timeless on their walls. Clients that want more than just a cheap price. Clients that just get “it”.
Their newborn session had so many wonderful images, but I’ve picked some of my favorites to share with you here ❤
Thanks again Schmidt family for allowing me to document this special new life! I can’t tell you how happy I am that you picked me from the pool of talented photographers in the area!
