Hey everyone!  I just wanted to take a second and talk a bit about some news and changes on the horizon for 2010.  It’s all good stuff, I promise!  :)

2010 Weddings:

  • We are about 75% of the way towards making our 2010 booking goal.  We may or may not accept additional wedding bookings after we hit that number – it will mostly depend on how busy we are in a given month.  I don’t want to freak anyone out, because we still have PLENTY of great dates available in just about every month (though June 2010 is just about maxed out).  My point is, if you are at all interested in working with us, even if you think it’s too early to meet with anyone, drop us a line and say hi.  We accept bookings up to 18 months in advance.  And we are always happy to chat with anyone, any time, so don’t be shy.  :)

Friday Availability (aka THE BIG NEWS!)

  • We’ve always aimed at running our business pretty transparently, so I’ve made no secret of the fact that I still have a full time job in addition to running West Park Photography with Andy.  While West Park is doing great, we are not yet at the point where I can kiss the security of a steady paycheck and health benefits away.  BUT as of January 1, I am now working just 4 days a week so I can devote more time to West Park.   And let me just say, WHOOOOO HOOOOO!  This will be great, in so many ways, both for my sanity, and for our clients.
  • So, as of right now, we are available for consults, meetings, and portrait & boudoir sessions any time on Fridays.   As January/February are typically slower months for us, I will be spending a lot of this new “free” time getting our 2009 clients squared away with their albums.  But as it gets warmer, look out!  I want to be doing a lot of portrait sessions.  So if you are interested, get in touch!

Client Stuff:

  • Our priority for the next few months until wedding season starts up will be album design. If you booked a package that included an album credit, you are already in our design queue.  If you did NOT have an album in your package, but want one, now is the time to get in touch so we can get rolling on that.  We are working on putting some tools in place to take some of the mystery out of album ordering – the choices are overwhelming, I know!
  • I’ve been ordering some yummy sample albums for our studio.  They will be arriving in the next 4-6 weeks and I will blog about them as they come in.  But if you are local and want to take a peak in person, let me know!
  • If we haven’t done your e-session yet, we will be in touch soon.  Ideally we’d like to do your session at least 8 weeks before your wedding so we have plenty of time to edit your images and get any prints/albums to you before the wedding.  We’d like to see our June-August brides in April-May, ideally. June will be very busy with us, so if you are a fall bride, plan on July or August, if you can’t see us in the spring.
  • If you need Save the Dates (cards or magnets), Thank You cards, or guestbooks, we can do all of the above.  Just let us know what you are interested in.

Wow, that was a lot of stuff!  Stay tuned, because I’ll be announcing our portrait specials soon!
