So I've been thinking a lot about this and I've come up with a few new adjustments to how I'm going to work my business in the new year. As always I thank you all for your business and support!
One thing that I'm NOT going to do anymore is a "quick" family sessions. Everyone always wants to tack a family session to their newborn session. First of all newborn sessions are extremely LONG on their own. So adding on a family session makes it even longer. It's too hard for me to switch gears like that. If I do a family session I want to give it my full effort and not just do it as an after thought. So if you want a family session you'll have to schedule it on it's own day. This doesn't include lifestyle sessions. I'm mostly just talking about location changes.
Sorry if this is inconvenient for anyone! The price for a family session is $200.
I'm also sad to say that the military discount will only apply to sessions done in Fayetteville and Hope Mills from now on. It will stay at 10%.
This next thing is hard for me but it HAS to be done. I'm going to be charging a $15 late fee. I've had way too many sessions where the families show up late. I'm standing there wasting time that could be spent with my family and you are losing precious light! I'm hoping this will fix the issue.
Another thing is I am going to require a non refundable $50 fee to schedule your session. The date can still be changed if needed. The reason for this is because I spend a lot of time thinking about your session. I buy props, I scout locations, I even pay to learn new techniques! So when someone backs out (without telling me!) it's extremely frustrating and I've just wasted money on props that I won't need. So this $50 fee will show me that you are serious about hiring me and it will be applied to the session fee.
That's it for now! Be sure to message me for questions and to book your session!
