The above photo was taken last weekend at a newborn session here in Orlando. This baby boy was the sweetest little thing ever, which is only fitting since he was born to the sweetest parents ever. It was such an amazing session and an honor to capture their son's first days for them. Not to mention, he arrived five weeks early to help mommy and daddy get their announcements out by Christmas!

Dear hypothetical client * (who is in no way connected to the image above),
I do not go to a 5-star restaurant, order a water, take the free bread appetizer, pat the free butter on said-bread, and then announce to the waitstaff (who have given me their full attention, time, and customer service with the same speed and care provided to every diner equally) long after the establishment is ready to close down for the evening (holding the waitstaff from spending time in their real lives, outside of work, with their families) that I will only be leaving with the free mint included inside the credit card folder because "Christmas is tight this year".
When you don't pay me for services you contracted for, including hours of custom proofing and design all for naught, my own family's Christmas is then tight. And the understanding stops.
If you can't afford the gourmet cuisine, please "window shop" and then go eat at McDonald's or Burger King. There are several other Extra Value Meals for you to choose from. Otherwise, you are invited to move to the kitchen and start washing dishes.
