A Christmas Session in the Rivermarket | Kansas City
This message I received about this session really choked me up. I am blessed to know this family. I don’t think I have ever met two people who compliment each other so well. J- has always been serious and stoic and A- is the yin to the yang. She wanted this session before she started cancer treatment and I am so glad that we could do it.
“Thanks so much for working us into your schedule, Melissa. I didn’t know if Andrea was going to be able to make it so I didn’t tell her about it at first. I thought maybe it would just be the kids. She really began looking forward to it once I told her and made sure we had everything we needed to look our best. You truly have a gift and these images will mean so much to our family.
To help your friends and clients understand … my wife is fighting cancer. She’s had multiple surgeries over the last year and began chemotherapy shortly before this photograph was taken. She told me she wouldn’t allow herself to be photographed after she started chemo. With the hassle of doctors’ appointments and everyday life, we simply didn’t have time to get in sooner. Melissa kept her calendar open to us anyway. She made sure to get several images of my kids with their mom. I don’t have words to express what these photos will mean to my family in the days ahead. We have worked with Melissa for a while and her photos of our children always bring tears Andrea’s eyes. She didn’t know I was going to share so much about my family. She does know and respect that I’m a very private person, which is why she only refers to me as “J” in her comment.
I think it’s important for people to appreciate the value a professional photographer like Melissa can add to a family’s biography. I also value the personal relationship that Melissa has with our family. It makes a difference. My children will have these images forever. Their mother and I will, too. (and the grandparents, in-laws, aunts & uncles, etc.) Thank you, Melissa!”
I am so lucky to have gotten to know your family. Thank YOU guys, for your business, support and friendship. I pray every day.
