I’ve been staring at this blank blog with avoiding concerns of being pointless. As I jotted notes, a recent client name Chance texted me with his testimonial. He made my first blog easy.
I am going to tell you a story of how Clinton and Maralee made me into a better person by doing what they do best. I was on my normal delivery route when Clinton's address came up to my next stop. Normally, it would be a scan drop and go. I was wrong. Clinton greeted me at the door, and I assumed something caught his eye. He asked to take my photo. I refused. A few questions later, I saw samples of his work. Only after seeing what he did with others that I agreed. Now let me stop the story here to tell you that it wasn't that cut and dry.
I am a VERY self-conscious person since elementary school. I had anxiety attacks because of what people thought of me. I wore large baggy clothes to hide in, especially sweatshirts. I wore it so often people thought I was hiding some skin problem. That being said, Clinton talked me into doing a photo shoot, which is a big step for me.
Back to the story. I returned, but I had to bring a friend for moral support. I had a hard time shaking being nervous and self-conscious.
But let me tell you, it only took them 5 minutes to crack me. I couldn't stop smiling, and I never smile!! Normally, I hand-block cameras pointed at me, but this time it was different. They truly made me a better person by helping me overcome being self-conscious. Later that night, walked around town with friends feeling confident, attractive, and empowered. If you have trouble accepting yourself I would definitely advise doing a photo session. Say hi to Clinton and Maralee and tell them Chance sent you.
