One of my personal goals this year is to do a better job letting people know when I appreciate them, because, really who doesn’t like to know that their time and efforts are meaningful? Sometimes just hearing those words of praise and gratitude can make such a huge difference!
Today, out of the blue, I received the sweetest email from a client that I had lost touch with. Her message was such an affirmation to me that I am right where I need to be…and maybe I have been all along.
“I wanted to send you a quick note and tell you that we celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary today. Last night I pulled out our wedding album and just sat and laughed and cried forever… I wanted to thank you for capturing those memories for us 5 years ago today. I see so many expressions and emotions in the photos that make me remember every moment. I guess that’s what makes your ‘craft’ so special.”
If I can do that for every client–really & truly help you remember not just what you were doing but also the way you felt during that moment–then I have all the affirmation I need.
