New Look & New Changes for 2012

It has been just over a week since I shared my new logo, and I’m so very excited to continue on bringing you the new and improved everything. It’s not just about looks, it’s all about making everything the best I can for YOU as clients and friends. I have a whole bunch of new sample products coming in the next few weeks, plus I will be back in Vegas next month for WPPI and will probably come home with even more new ideas, tips, tricks and things to share with all of you. So this post right here can be considered just the tip of the iceberg. I’ll start off by sharing a few of the main changes so I can figure out better which items should be laid out one post at a time.
Session Fees:
I had been asked for months by other professionals as to why I was underpricing myself so greatly as a photographer. Unfortunately, I couldn’t give them a good answer. There has been an increasing interesting in my services, so effective this year, session fees have been raised to $125. This could cover anything from a small family of four, high school seniors, or a basic engagement session. Also, session fees no longer include the digital negatives in any format. I want to be able to make sure you are getting the exact quality you are paying for, and unfortunately image and print quality are lost when a professional printer is not used. As always, for better details on what session fees entail, please feel free to send me an email at
Gift Certificates:
I have redesigned my gift certificates (and LOVE them, by the way) to make everything better for you! Originally, they were designed for a session fee plus 8x10 included, and you had that option and only that option to send as a gift. The way the gift certificates have been redesigned is that they are for whatever amount YOU would like to gift towards their session or product from it. The choice is in your hands, making it that much more personal!
Wedding Collections:
This year, I have created four fantastic wedding collections that include wedding coverage, product and engagement sessions. I wanted to make sure I was offering the best I could, as well as not throwing in too much "fluff" to confuse everyone. My collections are very basic and quick to the point. If you're getting married in 2012, send me an e-mail! I'd be more than happy to set up a meeting with you and send you a collection pricing sheet!
So here’s to a good 2012, and I cannot wait to share more with you soon :)
