My relationship with my hairdresser happened serendipitously. Her salon was across the street from my husband’s (boyfriend at the time) apartment in Philadelphia. I first had a different stylist that I didn’t click with but for some reason I went back and was paired with my current and uber fabulous stylist. We hit it off immediately and have been friends and co clients to each other for over 10 years. We’ve seen each other get engaged, then married, then have kids. I practiced my photography on her kids before I even went into business. We even both moved out of Philadelphia to the same part of the suburbs. This relationship was meant to be. She not only cuts my hair but also my children’s hair. Our children play together while I get my haircut…it is a win win. They are an amazing family that I absolutely enjoying being with and photographing. We were blessed to get beautiful weather, lighting, and two happy kids. It doesn’t hurt that everyone in the family is absolutely gorgeous. These images have a special place in my heart.
It is hard to believe that it has been two years since I got my camera on this amazing family. See how much smaller they were in their last session by clicking here.
Do you have a relationship that started out like this? Where you have gone from client to friend? Isn’t it a wonderful bonus?
