My mother came to Ashland for a visit.
I always appreciate Ashland when we have visitors.
We all enjoyed the mild weather, walking in the mountains above town, an outing to Jacksonville where we hiked on the trails behind the Britt festival grounds and ate Mexican food at La Fiesta, and swimming with the kids at the Stratford Inn.
On Monday we did something I’ve wanted to do for a long time: a family photo session with Christopher Briscoe.
Christopher Briscoe is a well-known celebrity photographer.
The shoot took about an hour and fifteen minutes from start to finish. Even the baby cooperated.
Chris is an amazing photographer.
He has a way with children and was able to get some gorgeous images.
Christopher Briscoe is also a good businessman.
As we were leaving he said, “Give me a week to get these on the Web.”
Then he called me back that same afternoon to tell me the pictures were ready to view, and that he knew my mom was leaving town and wanted us to have a chance to look at them together.
It’s brilliant to underpromise and overdeliver, which is what Christopher Briscoe was doing.
It impresses the hell out of your clients.
It impressed the hell out of me.
Ashland is a small town in southern Oregon full of famous highly respected incredibly talented people like Chris, hidden in plain sight. We also have the best coffee on the West Coast.
Come visit us sometime.
And when you do, schedule a photo shoot.
