Reflecting on Returning Clients {Grateful}

Potsdam Based Photographer: Natalie’s Studio| Newborn Photography

One of my dreams as a photographer has always been to be a family photographer.  I dreamed of clients I could build relationships with over time, to get to know them and their children.  Of moments when the kids came to the studio and said “Hi, Miss Natalie!” with hugs and smiles for the photo shoot.  I love watching families and kids grow.  And I take great pride in being part of people’s special moments in life; weddings, births, yearly family photos and senior portraits.  

I vividly recall when I was first starting my business in 2010, looking up to my mentors who said things like, “I photographed her as a baby and now she is getting married.”  I hoped that I would be able to create a business and connections that withstood the test of time and I could say the same thing someday.  And it is starting to happen.  It is hard to believe I have been in business over 10 years now. 

Maybe I am just getting older… my grey hair patch certainly tells me so.  But I now have a handful of return clients and it is the most rewarding experience.  They come back for each of their baby’s births, or every year for an updated family photo.  I even have some who I have seen from engagement photos, wedding and now baby number three. It truly means so much to me.

As our world around us changes, and COVID brings us all inside, closer to family but farther away from friends and others, the value of connection seems even greater.   I am not at the point of photographing brides who I knew as babies… but I am starting to see families grow and I really love that aspect of my business. 

I have been doing this business since I was married 10 years ago.  It has ebbed and flowed with my life, other responsibilities, and even multiple moves.  But I am so grateful that it grows with me, my family and client’s families.  And I just wanted to pause a moment to reflect on that. 

I had the pleasure of photographing baby number three for a return client of mine and I wanted to share.  It was such a joy.  Both older brothers gave me big hugs and smiles!  I wanted to share all three of these babies’ newborn sessions so that you can watch them grow as well.  Enjoy - Natalie
