I was talking with my husband this week and we couldn’t believe that the 8th month of the year is almost over. Soon enough we’ll be planning holiday meals and it will be winter break. I don’t remember time passing quite so fast when I was a child.
Something else that’s hard to believe is that there are only 2 weekend dates and 7 weekday session dates available for family or children sessions for the remainder of the year. I will not be photographing any holiday, family or children’s sessions after the first week of November. I know you’re probably thinking that there’s still a month and a half til Christmas, but with the time it takes to process your sessions and then the turn-around time from the lab, the latest I can enter orders and get them back to you in time for mailing to your friends and family is November 15th. This is the absolute deadline to have your order in so that you will receive it in time for gift giving and card sending!
While there are only a few full creative sessions left, I do have plenty of Christmas Mini Sessions available. November is full, but October has about 5 more left and September hasn’t had one booking yet. These mini sessions are designed for the budget-conscious client who maybe has already had a session this year and just needs an updated image for card sending or gift giving. They are great sessions for quick updates of the kids, too. A couple questions have been asked, so here are a few more tidbits about the sessions:
The sessions are not themed (meaning: Santa is not coming to your shoot location to have the kids sit on his lap, nor will there be any Christmas trees hanging around). While I love incorporating different things that your families love, mini sessions don’t really allow the time. Plus, this will allow you to hang your photos in your home year round.
The sessions are on location and not done in any studio. Take a look at the locations that are on my blog and the mini’s will likely be held in some place similiar!
They are limited to the dates listed on the information page and are not available to be scheduled for any other dates.
The sessions are valued at $500 or more each session package.
If you’re a fan on my facebook fan page (like page?), then you’ve probably seen that I introduced my 2010 Christmas Card collection. I’m so excited to offer these beautifully designed cards to you this year. All the cards are sized 5×7 and are flat cards (printed on both sides) printed on the highest quality cardstock available. All cards come with envelopes for your card sending convenience.
Now through September 5th, when you book any full Creative session, you’ll receive 48 custom cards in the design of your choice!
