I have my clients to thank

I mean it. This year has been such a blessing, and my clients are a major part of that. 

By internet standards, videos are supposed to be short. So I had to keep this message concise. However, I could have gone on and on and on and would need to in order to adequately thank each and every one of my clients.

From the Aaron family to the Zukermans, my beloved families and customers have made this year one of success. 

As you’ll hear in the video, my decision to quit a full-time gig to stay at home with my babies and focus on freelance work was a scary one to make. My fears and doubts were pretty high leaving something comfortable for something risky.

My beautiful clients kept me busy, which felt like an answer to many prayers and has helped me feel a bit more comfortable in my decision.

THANK YOU over and over again. Here’s to a great 2018!

And the winner is…

My July Facebook contest has now ended and ladies and gentlemen, you said some really, really nice things about my work. You really outdid yourselves, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Without further ado…drumroll please…the winner is:

Melanie Busbee Photo July contest winner from Melanie Busbee on Vimeo.

Congratulations, Holly! You are a tremendous customer and momma to those gorgeous kiddos. I have loved watching your family grow and look forward to another photo session!

July CONTEST alert: Your words complete me

No lie, I have the best customers in the world. They know it and I know it. My customers are funny, easy to work with, and value the important things in life like preserving memories. My customers make me laugh and happy cry, they walk into the depths of the woods and the middle of rivers for me, they sometimes offer me beer at their houses. They call me again and again as their relationships and families grow. And boy do I love watching them grow.

As a professional offering photography services, my sessions, my work and my products feel very personal. They are creations built within the most intimate of moments and they tell the very personal stories of my customers. When I share photos and videos with my clients, I cherish and welcome their feedback – both good and bad. I’ve been very blessed that so many of my client comments completely warm my heart and take my breath away.

Like this:

“They are amazing! I love so many of them! Seriously, these are the type shots I was hoping for. Also, you work super fast. I am impressed and inspired.” – Julie

And this:

“I absolutely love our photos they are perfect! You are so good!! We are going to have to fill our house with these because we aren’t going to be able to choose which ones to hang.” – Misty

And this:

“Just looking at these pics for 100th time….love them! These are wonderful! You are really talented!  And you are so quick! Thank you.” – Kate

And this:

“Wow, I LOVE these Melanie! You’re awesome! By the way, my daughter really enjoyed the photo session. She mentioned several times how much fun she had. Maybe you’ll need an intern in a few years… ;)” – Trish

And this:

”WOW!!!! They are just breathtaking!!! I am so happy with these!! Ahhhh! Work of art. Thanks for sharing! My heart is so full.” – Christa

And this:

“I woke up to [my wife] cry-smiling while flipping through these pictures. Think you did good work.” – Dan

So it’s because I treasure these beautiful words from my customers (and because I just discovered the Client Review option of Facebook) that I’m kicking off my first contest of the year.

For any Melanie Busbee Photo customers (past and present) that leave a review on my Facebook page, you will be entered into a random drawing for a complimentary photo session.* The contest starts today and will remain open through July 31, 2017, 11:59 pm, so get those reviews submitted now! Just go to my facebook page and click the ‘Review’ option in the left-hand column. I will select one winner to announce on August 1st. Good luck!

* Session fee is waived ($100 value). Winner is responsible for cost of photos.
