For those of you that were still wondering about getting pictures taken this year, I am currently booked out! I am not taking any more photo shoots until next year (2012) after all the holidays are over.
Also on another note, my prices will be increasing at the beginning of the year. $100 for individuals, $125 for family photo shoots (up to 5 immediate family members) $15 for each additional person, and $150 for newborns. These changes will take effect Jan. 1, 2012.
I have learned that I cannot say no to those in need, and I always feel as other people's happiness is more important than my own. I still feel this way, and I think I always will. I love to see smiling faces when I know I've given them something they can cherish forever. But, for purposes of keeping my own sanity, enjoying my holidays with my own family, and being a happy mom, I cannot push myself the way I have been and be the person I want to be. So, therefore, I wanted to say that there will be a deadline for pictures in 2012. I am not going to be taking any bookings after October 30, 2012. No exceptions. This does not mean I'm done taking pictures forever. It just means that for everyone that wants pictures to send out to family and friends for the holidays needs to make sure it's done before the 30th of October.
My goal is to only do one shoot a week during the year. I do know that it is more demanding for the holiday cards and so for that reason only I will be taking two shoots a week starting in August. So that gives you 3 months to get those pictures done. I really hope that you can understand. I feel so blessed to be able to do what I do and I want to thank EVERYONE that has made this year so memorable! I really love and appreciate all that you have done for me! It's because of all you that make this so enjoyable! THANK YOU!!
