The Greabell's - Maternity Photoshoot - Tampa, Florida

October 30th, 2022

If I were to choose my favorite clients, I'd unhesitatingly pick the Greabells. They're an adorable, quirky family with a peculiar distaste for pictures. Yet, they always end up in front of my camera, begrudgingly putting up with the flashes, the poses, and the endless clicking. It's an amusing contradiction that I've grown fond of over the years.

Most people do not really understand the true worth of hiring a photographer. They often see it as an unnecessary expense, an extravagance that could be easily replaced by a smartphone. But let me tell you, there's a world of difference between a spontaneous click on a phone and a picture crafted with love and attention by a professional.

The Greabells were no different initially. They would complain about the inconvenience, the time consumed, and the seemingly pointless effort. But everything changed when they received their first edited gallery from me.

That's when they realized the value of hiring an artist. It was not about the money they spent, but about the moments they could relive. It was about capturing the essence of their family, the love they shared, and the life they had built together.

Every laugh line, every strand of hair caught in the sunlight - these nuances brought alive the magic in the mundane. This is what hiring a professional photographer brings to the table. This is why the Greabells, despite their initial reluctance, now look forward to our photography sessions.

Sure, they still complain about finding the time that could be spent on other priorities. But beneath all that, they see a newfound appreciation for the art and the artist. And that, to me, is the most rewarding part of my job. The Greabells have taught me that sometimes, the most reluctant clients can turn out to be the most rewarding ones.
