In some ways I think Kim's husband wanted her session as much as she did. This isn't a bad thing for sure, I love when husbands are on board and want to see their women happy.
Kim was one of the first clients with whom I started incorporating emotional poses into each session. This was definitely a new experience for both of us, but she went along with it and had a great sense of humor.
As long as a location permits it, getting a client outside is high on my list of session to-dos. It doesn't need to be the middle of the desert but just using the outside of the house or the patio area can help push comfort zones.
When I met Kim again for her reveal I started off with her slideshow. When I walked back in the room I swear I saw a bit of moisture in the corner of her eyes. She couldn't believe that was her in some of the images. One of the best signs that I did my job is when a client gets teary.
