The value of a family portrait...
Sometimes we as photographers fail to recognize just how important what we do is, so it is easy to understand why clients (or potential clients) do as well.
But think about it, we are capturing a moment in time, a tiny slice of life that will be gone forever and will never return, so it's hard to understand why some people will balk at the price of a print but have no problem spending hundreds of dollars for just a single night out.
Here is a letter that will reinforce the importance of what we as photographers do and also reinforce the value of a printed image.
Thanks to photographer Jeanine Thurston for having the courage to post it.
