I am overjoyed, flattered, and humbled after putting on a client appreciation day for my past and present photography clients! I have been so fortunate to be able to work with such wonderful families, couples, and babies over the years working as a birth, family, documentary, and real estate photographer in the St. Louis area. It’s one thing to run a business and have clients. It’s an entirely different thing to have loyal clients who know you, who like you, who trust you, and most importantly, who support and believe in you. To everyone who made it out today, as well as to those who couldn’t make it, I want to say THANK YOU. You make my business what it is and without you, I wouldn’t be here today.
We went to a local St. Louis park and somehow caught a break in the relentless heat of the summer. We happened upon a mild weather day and had plenty of shade, a playground, a splash pad, beer, and Ted Drewes! It was a mid day afternoon event and even my sweet clients who have babies who typically nap at that time showed up. Seriously, like I said, humbled. As a mom to three little ones, we know how important naps are. Your kiddos are troopers!!
The kids played for hours on the playground and jumped around happily on the splash pad. With the exception of one burned butt (poor Abby, I know you’re a tough lady!), one bruised head, one scraped up arm, and a couple tumbles here and there, the kids did great! I was so happy to see the plethora of kiddos! It brings me such a smile when I get to work with kids during my sessions and watching them grow up is incredibly special to me!
The adults, well, with beer, Ted Drewes, and good company, there was no shortage of conversation, laughter and fun. And with cold beer hugged by some Katie Gaeta Photography koozies, everyone was able to kick back and enjoy the afternoon.
I can’t thank everyone enough for the love, support, and for showing up to my first annual Client Appreciation Day! You can bet we’ll have it again next year, so if you couldn’t make it out this time, stay tuned for updates for the next one (and I’ve already vowed to take more photos of it next year! ha ha ha)! So excited for my upcoming client sessions and to add all sorts of new clients to the list next year!
If you want to be part of fun events and updates from Katie Gaeta Photography or if you're interested in a session, we should probably chat! I bet we'd make some magical things happen!
