I’ve said so many times that one of the parts of my job that I love is meeting some truly remarkable people. Four years ago, the Abdouni family came to me for family portraits. I knew they were going to be special when their 3 year old, Jana, walked in the door, walked right up to me, and hugged my leg. For the rest of the session she owned my heart, and they gave me some of the most tender, emotional moments and images I’ve known as a photographer. Last week, they returned for senior photos of Hana, who grew up so fast, I was astounded to get the email. Again, I was blessed, not only with great images, but a family who responded with excitement and appreciation, to some very artistic post production effects. Images By Michael is blessed to have clients like this. That is why I do what I do. That is why I love it so much. To Bachir, Rima, Hana, and little Jana, I love you guys !
