I have a couple of blog posts to share in the next week or so, from two newborn sessions I was lucky to do in August. But since I’m running behind, I wanted to take a moment to give a quick update on scheduling for the busy season coming up. Everyone is back to school now, and autumn (or Houston’s version of it) is coming on fast. My favorite pumpkin flavors are here, so that counts in my book! Fall is the busiest time of year for photographers and it’s bittersweet for me to announce that I have booked all available dates for full sessions through the end of the year. I do still have a few slots available as mini sessions on October 12th! So contact me soon to book your mini session, and stay tuned for all of the adorable couples, families, and babies coming up on the blog in the next 3 months!
I can’t believe we’re already halfway through August, and that much closer to Fall! Things have been busy around here, and I’m happy to announce that I will be offering Fall mini sessions this October! Since there are a limited number of weekends and I’m already starting to book up for the rest of the year, I want to offer mini sessions again, to get everyone in just in time for holiday cards. With the “annual family photo” in mind I’ve structured the mini sessions a little differently this time:
When & Where: Saturday, October 12th, inside the loop
Price: $125 plus tax
What you get: A 20-30 minute session with a gallery of 8-10 edited photos; receive digitals in color and black & white for 1 image of your choice. And if you’d like to purchase the entire gallery, you can do so for an additional $50.
There is a limit of 5 people per mini session time slot.
Whether you are interested in a mini or standard session, be sure and book today! There is a very limited number of sessions still available this Fall.
It’s officially summertime in Houston! Most of us have such packed schedules in the summer, whether it’s going out of town on weekends, or neighborhood parties. I’ve decided to offer mini sessions in July in the area around the bayou, on weeknights to accomodate all of our crazy lives!
This is also a kind of last photo session blitz before my maternity leave ends and life gets even crazier (I’ll be returning to my day job as early as August, and photography will continue on a part-time basis on weekends). I’m offering sessions at 6:45pm (subject to availability & weather), with 20-30 minutes of shooting and 8 digital images with print release. You also have the option to purchase high quality prints through me at a la carte prices. Book now — this is your last opportunity to get a mini session at this price! The next time I offer mini sessions will be in the fall, and new rates will apply!
**Note that as of mid-July, all available sessions have been scheduled in July and August, so all new sessions will be scheduled at the new rates**
As you may already know, I have been offering limited-time, portfolio-building prices since I opened for business in February. This has given me such a great opportunity to meet new people and get myself out there as a photographer, and I’m so glad to have taken this time to “ease into” the business side of this passion of mine! However, the time has come for me to end my limited-time special and move into a new pricing model.
Effective August 1, my photography services will be charged under a different model. I will be moving to a session fee, due at the time of booking (refundable, see details on my updated pricing page), with three collections and several a la carte items that can be selected for purchase after the session. The standard session fee will include a gallery of 25-30 images from which you can select images.
Collections will include different levels of digital and print packages, ranging from 10 digital images to the entire session’s images. All purchased digital negatives are delivered on a USB and include high resolution print files (with print release), and lower resolution web files. A large part of why I’m moving to this model is to help my clients decide which images they really love — then, only purchase the images they love, though I hope you love them all! — and get those images tangibly in your hands in the form of high-quality prints. Life is busy, and unfortunately many of us have photos that we love, yet they stay hidden in a folder on our computers or buried on our Facebook timelines after a week or so. These collections provide that extra push to make sure you come away with something you can put in your home. Additional prints and other professional-quality products are always available a la carte, as well.
To book a session at the current rates, please contact me prior to July 31 to schedule your session; sessions at the old rates must take place prior to August 31. All inquiries after July 31 will be subject to the new pricing model. I’m so excited about the upcoming changes for my business! Stay tuned for a peek at my new packaging and some other fun changes & events happening over the next few months!
