When I first walked through the doors of Little's Photography in January
of 2012, there were 2 things that made an impression on me. First, I loved
everything I saw - from the gorgeous family portraits to the most incredible
framing samples on the walls, I knew I was in a high quality place where
people definitely knew what they were doing. Second was the interaction
between the staff and the clients who were in the studio. There were hugs
flying around the place, squeels of delight and just an overall good vibe.
That first visit was for a meeting with Jennifer Little to see if there
was a spot for me to join her team. Thankfully I was the "last spoke
she needed on her wheel" is I think how she put it and a few short
weeks later I was a part of Little's Photography as their new Sales
and Marketing Director.
Every day I was there I was struck by the connection the Little's Photography
and The Frame Studio staff had with the clients they came into contact
with. I sometimes felt a little out of place, certainly a little jealous
and a bit mystified as to how these relationships came about. I come from
a background of very polite but stiff "Good Afternoon" and "It
was a pleasure to meet you" greetings. But here, it was like greeting
an old friend from college. There was genuine happiness and interest in
the lives of the clients.
Fast forward almost 2 years and I totally GET IT! I have spent the last
year answering questions for clients before their shoot, then experiencing
the images with you as you view them for the first time. We spend a LOT
of time together as we narrow what images will make the cut as your favorites
and by the time you're finished it's like we're a couple of
old friends. It feels pretty amazing when you come in to pick up your
portraits and you feel compelled to come give me a hug!
The team at Little's Photography and The Frame Studio really cares
about the product we produce and it shows in your portraits and framing.
So if you want to experience the LOVE at Little's Photography, book
a shoot and see for yourself.
I'll be waiting to hear what you think at your viewing . . .
