I almost don’t believe it myself. I have quadruple checked thinking maybe I made a mistake somewhere, but I haven’t. As of right now, I’m booked through August! To say I’m “honored, grateful and shocked” doesn’t quite sum up how I feel about saying I’m booked this early in the year. My heart is so incredibly full and my eyes well up whenever I think about it. A big thanks to all of my past clients for keeping me so busy and sending your friends my way!
I’m sharing this because I have a very hard time saying “No”, but this year I promised my family I would say “No” to the extra work instead of to them. I’m always so flattered and thrilled when someone wants to work with me, that I feel so bad saying I’m booked and just can’t do it. I figure if I put it out there, I may get less inquiries to tempt me to say “Yes” to, haha. After having such a full year last year, I knew I needed to cut back some to find a better balance. I still have a full workload, but quite like last year. The days are long, but the years are short. I can’t get this time back with my family, so finding balance is key. I’m getting there. 🙂
So what do you have left?
Great question! Here is what I have available to book! I will not be booking any outdoor sessions for the rest of the year. The only exception will be engagement sessions for my 2017 couples and maternity sessions for Belly & Baby/First Year Package clients. I will do my best to make accommodations for my newborns from last year to photograph milestone and first birthday sessions. Please contact me asap, though.
- September – I can take 1 more newborn. (last spot pending)
- October – I can take 4 more newborns.
- November – I will be able to take 3 more newborns. Christmas Mini Sessions will be held as they have prior years. Join the newsletter to be alerted before anyone else and have first dibs on sessions.
- December – I will take 2 newborns.
So if you want to work with me in the future, please reach out as soon as you know! I am booking 2017 weddings and I allow portrait sessions to be booked 6 months in advance. Newborns I will book as early as mom and dad are willing to book. 🙂
Please follow me on Facebook for last minute openings.
If I open up any extra spots or have cancellations, I will post on Facebook. So be sure to follow me if you want to be alerted and ‘get notifications’ from my page. It’s also a great idea to sign up for the newsletter to stay updated on availability.
