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.
