I met Tracie through a local mom's message board and if I remember correctly, she was the first person to purchase printed products from photographs I created. Even so early in my business, I recognized the timelessness of the images taken and that they would only gain in value as the years quickly passed.
I didn't know anything about professional packaging for portraits and I found some shirt boxes and tissue paper and painstakingly put everything together to bring to Tracie. I was so nervous and excited! I remember standing at her kitchen counter and she unveiled everything and being so proud that she had seen something in me that inspired her to not only schedule a session, but to financially invest in those images. I'll never forget the feeling of fulfillment that I experienced in that moment. It was then that I realized I had found my calling.
