Mother of the Month is a monthly blog post where I highlight one of my clients and the maternity photography (or family photography) we did together. I love working with so many wonderful women, and I am so grateful to have met so many soulful people who continue to change my life for the better.
- Tell me a little bit about yourself, your husband and how you met. Why you decided to have kids. Was it an easy process?
My name is Rachel, I was born and grew up in China. I met my husband, Sam, in 2010 when we were both in college in Hangzhou, China, which is a famous tourist city. Sam went to the US studying for his master’s degree in 2012. After 2 years time separated by the Pacific Ocean, I came to the US after my graduation and married him in September 2014. We had a good time living together and after about a year, we thought it was the time to add a baby to our family, normally as married couples do in our culture. It was not an easy process, however, that the first two pregnancies were not successful. We did not give up. We prayed and believed, and thanked God that in 2017, the dream came true.
- What is your secret to a good relationship?
Actually there’s nothing called a “secret” as to a good relationship in marriage, but two things always win: love and respect. God brought the two of us together to let us enjoy each other and help each other to achieve our higher goals, not to find fault or try to fix the other person. Husband and wife are different, so it is normal to have different opinions. One important thing is that we need to respect his/her opinion even if it is not the same with yours. Have an open atmosphere at home to discuss the differences with peace and love. Remember that our common ground is to make a decision or choice that is good for the family, and we do not have this discussion to prove somebody is wrong or right.
- Tell me about why you decided to have professional family or maternity photographs, and why you trusted me to take these special photos.
We want to record and memorize this special period of time in life, and want to have a professional to get the work done, because we trust professional photographers and believe that they can catch the most beautiful pictures and memories. Also, we want this maternity photography to be special. We chose and trusted you to take those special photos because we like your art style very much, it is unique and beautiful, and you have rich experience in your work and art.
- Tell me what the experience was like to work with me, and anything special that you came away with or learned?
It was a great experience working with you. One thing that impressed me is that you always ask for our opinion and what we want in order to make your work to show the uniqueness. You make your work personal and unique to each customer and never treat it as duplicated merchandise.
