Out of the mouths of babes...

On Thursday I snapped this pix of Trevor, my son, while on my way out of the house to photograph a high school senior in Westlake. I always worry that I am spending too much time on photography since I seem to be working about 12 hours a day this time of year.

Just today when we were having lunch a client called. When I came back to the table Trevor said, "Mom, I'm glad not more people know about you." When I asked him what he meant by that he said, "well, if more people knew about you, you wouldn't be able to take care of us and if less people knew about you, you wouldn't be able to take care of us either."

It's so funny he would say that because I just received an e-mail with a client questioning my prices and asking me to drop them. I can honestly say that we are not well-off and just as Trevor said things are in balance. With the time I put into EVERY client's work, I have to charge what I charge so that I can provide for my family. I know there are cheaper photographers out there but there are also much more expensive photographers out there as well.

I just want to thank everyone of you that have given me the opportunity to document your lives!! I truly appreciate you!
