Takin' care of business.

Oh hi, everybody! it's time for some business round up (I know, boring! But if you're a regular client or maybe a future client, keep on reading). 


First things first, my prices have changed. I always feel like I have to explain my pricing adjustment because I don't want anyone to think I'm getting too big for my britches (people still say that, right?). That is not the case.  The case is that my pricing has remained the same for two years, and it was just time. If these numbers seem shocking to you,  remember that you have the option to purchase professional prints through my website, versus purchasing the digital images. In most cases, this is a much more affordable option! I think that as digital photography has grown, so has the need to have every single digital image taken during a session. I totally understand this, but the reality is that those images usually sit on your computer or cd and nothing is ever done with them. Let your photos be seen! Print those bad boys, don't let them collect dust. ANYWAY, that's what's up with session pricing as of late. You can see what I'm referring to by clicking on the 'investment' link at the top of this site.

Secondly, last year was absolutely the most stressful and exhausting season I've had as a business owner. Trying to balance editing, shooting sessions, weddings and OH YEAH, taking care of a child.. It was basically a shit show over here.  Since I do run my own business, it's time to take back a little bit of control. I will only be booking 1-2 sessions per week this summer and will very rarely be booking on weekends that I also have weddings booked (usually Sunday's). I don't know how I got in the habit of squeezing as many sessions as possible into a week, but I'm starting to feel drained and my child needs her mom around (and mentally functioning).  Why am I telling you this? It's partly to hold myself accountable, to make sure I stick to this, and also so anyone looking to book a session this summer/fall is aware that session slots will be limited. 

That's all for now! Thanks for reading, commenting, booking or just following along with me on this journey.









winter bookings

A little bit of business round up:

 I've had a lot of people ask if I'm still booking sessions because of my pregnancy. The answer is, absolutely. Though my due date is February 6th, I haven't given myself a cut off date as to when I'll stop booking sessions. Let's book some snowy portraits, family portraits during the holidays, newborn sessions, or boudoir sessions! Though March- May is my slower season, I will also still be taking on sessions come mid/late March, so don't hesitate to contact me.

You may have noticed the giveaway happening on my facebook page right now.  I normally don't do giveaways because they make me feel like a bad 70's game-show host, butttt I *still* have openings for  2015 weddings and am trying to spread the word. I am looking to book at least 2-3 more weddings for next year, so if you are a bride/groom or know someone looking for a wedding photographer, I'm your gal! I would love to continually book more weddings each year and further grow my business. I have learned so much over the past 5 years of shooting weddings, (especially this past year), and I am itching to learn and grow more as an artist!  Visit my facebook page, share and comment on the giveaway photo to be entered to win a FREE photo session!

Here's a few snaps of my handsome husband, just because I like him.

(This is something that's happened probably a handful of times in the 8 years that we've been together, so let's all just accept this as a Christmas Miracle)
