I cant believe its that time of year already!! Cant wait to see all my amazing families and kids this year, and see how much they have grown!!!
For all my amazing returning clients and families, the schedule and process for this years sessions are mostly the same, with a new scheduling link that will have locations listed as soon as they are chosen!
Two main changes for this year! #1) On weekends, due to a more limited availability this year (so many fall weddings, and kid activities!), I will be available for mini sessions ONLY. You are able to book more than one mini session if you want more time than a 20 min session. Mini sessions are quick, but I really can get a lot done on them! If you want a full hour, contact me to schedule a weekday morning or evening! I will be available most weekday mornings, and Mondays and Wednesday evenings. The second change- On dates where I am shooting in the morning and the evening, one of those blocks will be in the Temecula area, and the other is open for travel to San Diego County.
For new clients, here is a basic run-down of how it works! A mini session is 20 minutes, and includes your favorite 5 digital images, with the option of adding more. The cost is $150. You can find the specific details on my website! If you are able to schedule a weekday session, please contact me to reserve a specific date and timeslot! I will be available most weekday mornings and Monday and Wednesday evenings. Friday, Saturday and Sunday time slots will be booked on a first come first serve basis, at the following booking link! A quickness’s synopsis of the dates I am available is also listed below at the bottom of this text.
Dates and times will be listed on the link. As in the past, the first person to book a date gets to choose the location. If a specific location is not listed on the app, it is likely that you are the first!As soon as you book a time slot, please message me your preferred location choice! I will update the location on the scheduling app for others to book time slots around yours. I will try to update the scheduling link as soon as possible, and if the date has already had a location chosen, but I hadn’t gotten around to updating the calendar, I will let you know! The entire session fee is required at the time of booking.
As always, during the Fall holiday season, I book sessions back to back, and I don’t charge anyone a travel fee! If I make a special trip for your session alone, travel fees may apply. Please read the stipulations in the contract to understand the canceling/rescheduling process. As the schedule starts to fill up, I might add extra time slots. The slots listed currently are the earliest in the morning and the latest before sunset, which are the best times for good light!
The gallery with your proofs will be available no later than 2 weeks after your session. Your session fee includes your favorite 5 images as high res digital downloads. If you wish to keep more than five, they are $15 each, or you can add the entire gallery for $75. Please contact me if you have any questions!! Also, peruse the pics below to get some ideas for what type of location you might want!
Final disclaimer- I LOVE my job and I LOVE LOVE my clients. But this season can be very hectic and stressful- so please be patient with me if I make a mistake or screw something up, lol. Im not perfect and it happens. I PROMISE to show up and shoot with 110% of my heart and effort, which is one of the reasons why I am changing things up a bit this year. I dont want to be frazzled and overbooked and stressed out. I want to enjoy each and every session with my amazing clients! I cant wait to see you all!! Contact me with questions!!
I cant wait to see all your sweet and smiling faces!!
