Above all, being a professional photographer is about relationships. I am always overjoyed when I have the opportunity to connect with a client and establish a relationship that extends beyond a single photo session. That relationship is what I am after, what I hope to create with each client I serve here in Japan.
For some photographers, a paycheck is good enough. But, for me, I would rather have a handful of clients whom I enjoy spending time with than a million clients who "just want some photos." Why? Well, great images are created when both clients and photographers are comfortable with each other, when there is a level of trust and respect.
I worked with the Schultz family a couple of years ago and was thrilled that they wanted to schedule another family portrait session in downtown Tokyo this year.
Even though I have kept in touch with the Schultz family these past years, I was shocked to see them in person. Joyce and Matt hadn't aged a bit, but the kids had grown so much. But, as much as the kids had grown, their personalities hadn't changed at all. The Schultz children still had as much spunk and energy as they had in 2015.
In the end, our second portrait session together was a nice as the first. I left our session overjoyed that I had the chance to see this beautiful family one more time. I was honored to spend another hour or two chatting with Matt and Joyce and creating more images to remind the Schultz family of their time in Japan. I was grateful to know that the family was, and will continue to be, one of the clients I cherish.
