Christy Martin Photography » Photographing: Families, Faith, Food & Fun!

The Jacobs

Sometimes, CLIENTS turn into FRIENDS.

Sometimes, a session is more of a blessing to ME than it is to the FAMILY I’m photographing.

And sometimes, after my camera has been put away and I’m saying good-bye to the kids in the van, the mom and dad both decide to embrace me in a huge HUG and proceeds to PRAY over me and for my next chapter of life.  (Okay, that’s actually the first time that last part has ever happened, but, BOY, did I appreciate it more than they will ever know.)

One of my last sessions (for a while) ended with words that I’ll always remember:

The family shared how the photos I’ve taken of their family over the past 5 years have helped get them through hard times.
They told me their photos weren’t just a ‘social-fix’ for everyone to see online (I loved that!), but instead, one of their most ‘valued possessions’.
I was already crying at this point, but, when Marty thanked Jesus for “throwing Christy into our lives” and he asked God to give me beautiful moments in Arkansas that I know are from Him, yeah… I quickly became a sobbing MESS!

So, photographing Marty and Missy was a great way to end what has been an AMAZING, AMAZING season for me.

I am so THANKFUL for THEM and ALL my wonderful clients who have allowed me to do what I LOVE!

Missy was VERY sweet a few days before our session…
She said the only ‘specific‘ photo she wanted during this session is one of us together.   So, I think it was ANOTHER first, but, I handed my camera over and was actually IN a picture!

Missy Jacobs - How do I even begin to reply to that post? We love you so much and although we are selfishly saddened to see you go we are more thrilled for you and your family.
