I just LOVE when clients send me notes like this. This e-mail made my day.
"I just wanted to thank you and tell you how grateful I am to have found you. I have spent two years researching and shooting with photographers all over LA only to receive headshots that didn't look anywhere as good as the shots on the photographers' websites. I have never gotten one theatrical shot that I was proud of, or that I even wanted to share with casting directors. In your proofs I saw about 8 theatrical shots that I am absolutely in love with, two of which made me exclaim "wow" the second I saw them. Before this I was beginning to believe that I just couldn't take good non-smiling pictures, I thought there was something wrong with my face. Now I realize that maybe it wasn't me, it's just that I've been shooting with some really crappy (overpriced) photographers. So thank you for giving me back my belief in myself and for being such a wonderful and meticulous photographer. I'm telling all of my friends about you "

That's awesome to hear!! So crappy that she had to pay others for crappy photos. Your example looks awesome, especially the coloring!
Awesome! You totally deserve to hear that!!

Amber, that's awesome! I'm so glad she took the time to write that, and I bet her word of mouth gets you more business.
