Unexpected Common Ground

This evening I went to the home of a new client.  And when I walked in the door, and saw her granddaughter sitting up on a bar stool at the counter I recognized her immediately.  Of course, I couldn’t pin down WHY I recognized her… but I knew I did.  Turns out, she’s a junior handler!  How cool!

It’s always nice when you find you have an unexpected connection with a client.  There’s just this instant warming that happens, when you realize you have a mutual hobby or experience.  Generally people find themselves at ease with me pretty quickly.  I’m just one of those relaxed folks who likes those around her to feel relaxed too.  But it really is a treat when you’ve instantly got something – other than photography business – to talk about.

Now, don’t get me wrong.  LOL  I love talking photography…  but from time to time, it’s nice to have some other common ground.  🙂
