A few months back I was at work at the church and I noticed the preschool director had put up photos of the graduating preschoolers.? I love photos of kids, but these struck me as different.? I took a closer look and lemme jus say, holy hell!? They were the best photos of kids I have evah seen.? The person taking those has gots some madd photo skillz.? I noticed a little watermark on the photos that read, “Willows.”? Elle being Elle, I looked up “Willow’s Photography Tacoma” on Google.? I was lead HERE.? I clicked the “Click here for the latest” link and was taken to her blog.
I was totally blown away by the photos this woman has taken.? They were gorgeous.? See I was writhing in jealousy with the photos Jenny* had taken of the twins.? I wanted great photos like that.? I’d talked with Carla to see if she could help me find a photographer in my area, but all of my calls went unanswered.? What kind of self-employed photographer doesn’t want work?? So I sent Willow an email and laid out my whole story.? The same day I get a phone call from her!? Same day!? You are hired.
I laid in the hammock one afternoon and talked with her and somehow the topic of me doing web design came up.? She said that she’s all about working for trade.? An agreement was reached that I would design her site and she’d photograph my family.? Cause you know I’m all about the fair trade too.
A few weeks ago we spent the morning with Willow in the greatest city and my boy met his first girlfriend (he told us so the other night).? Willow came over last night to show us our images, and I am here to tell you that I would wallpaper my living room with these photos if I could.? They are just the best things I have evah seen!
Don’t believe me?? Take a look!? Aren’t they just the best**?? (for the record my child is the second child, just in case you don’t read the actual post.)
*I didn’t link Jens because she has a password.
**MOTHER! Don’t even think of stealing those photos.? If I find out you did I will make Willow charge you for them.
