2013 shooting schedule

I'd first like to thank you all for an awesome 2012 fall portrait season, it was so great seeing you and meeting new folks. Now, as some of you know, I had a baby girl last April. Being a mom has been an amazing journey so far, and coming back to work in September was a wonderful, creative outlet for me. The 2012 fall season was jam packed with lots of shoots and having had no previous experience of juggling a new baby and running a full time photography business, I realized it was too much for 1 person to handle. As a result, I've had to rethink my portrait schedule. With that said, my 2013 shooting schedule will consist of 6 shoots per month (no more than that, no exceptions--sorry!). Shoots will take place in 1 designated location 2 Saturdays per month (rain dates will be Sunday). I will shoot 3 families per saturday at the designated location. If you have already purchased a Watch Me Grow package, I highly suggest you contact me as soon as possible to get on my schedule. This will go in to effect in March 2013. Also, if you purchased a gift certificate, please contact me right away to be sure you can get in on a saturday session. Since newborn shoots are so time consuming and take place in your home, they can't be done on Saturdays. Newborn shoots will only take place on a week day, and I plan on accepting a very minimal number of newborn shoots per year.

This is a temporary schedule change, not permanent by any means. When I am ready to take on more, I will let you all know. My main concern is being sure I can give 100% of myself to you and  your family without compromising my creative process. I plan on continuing with my Connecticut Spring/Fall Portrait days as well!

....and finally, here is a recent photo of my baby girl. This was one of the photos taken for her holiday card, as you can imagine she had many "looks" for the shoot.

Happy 2013!
