I adored working with all of my 2010 Senior Models and Amanda was no exception! A senior from Glenwood, she is actively involved in her church and wants to become a teacher. For one of her sessions, I traveled to her little country church and photographed her reading and playing with the Sunday School kids she works with. I wanted to share what her lovely mother had to say about their experience (I teared up when I received her email!):
“I was browsing your blog for latest pictures of Amanda and WOW! I know several of the girls on your blog; you have captured each individual’s personality and spirit. I have never seen such true-to-life (or at least personality) in photos. I thought I would test my theory and view other sites — I was right; I am incredibly impressed with your work, and with you as a person. Amanda had several young children in one of her shoots and my youngest daughter tagged-along to both sessions. You treated each individual with the utmost respect and made it fun for all involved! I was surprised how well you communicated with Katie and made her part of the evening. I think others would have asked to have her removed from the “happenings,” but you let her be a part of it, and made it a special day for her as well. Katie told me later that evening that you “inspired her and she wants to be a photographer.” Oh, and mark your calendar for nine years from now, because Katie wants you to take her senior pictures. I greatly appreciate your professionalism and character, and love for what you do — it shows! Our family has worked with many photographers and you are by far the best!! You will go far in this business, and I wish you much happiness and success in the future.”
