Fall Mini Session 2014

***Since we live in south Louisiana and the mosquitoes are pretty bad out, I’m also going to also suggest bug spray!

Changes to come…

December 11, 2010

in my pricing structure… will let you know the details soon!

Availability for November…

October 26, 2010

I’ve gotten quite a lot of inquiries for sessions for next month… more than I would be able to actually book. I will know more by tomorrow night about which days I will be available and I will get back to those who have e-mailed me. Sorry for the delay. Once I figure out which dates I can offer I will post them here on the blog and direct inquiries here. From there it will be first-come-first-serve… whoever contacts me first to secure the remaining dates will get them!  There are no longer any weekend dates available… just weekdays. Thanks everyone for your interest in my work!


UPDATE: My November calender is all full. Thanks everyone! I hope to be able to offer mini sessions before Christmas next year so I can accommodate more families.

Must give a shout out…

to Janee Garber.

She rocks. Isn’t she stunning!!!

She’s my new esthetician and she can be found at the office of the most fabulous and highly recommend  Dr. Stephen Delatte, Plastic and Reconstuctive Surgeon.

You know… I spend so much time behind the camera (often crawling on the ground for the ‘perfect shot’) and then polishing and perfecting images of other people that I often forget about taking care of myself and my own skin. So I’m doing this for me… and once I’m done… I’m going to schedule a photo session of my own… for myself. I’m actually thinking of setting up some glamour night portrait parties… just for women. We will get all dressed up… get together… and take some fabulous glamourous photos to give to our husbands… and to feel great about ourselves. Anyone interested in this ladies ??? If you know a group of women that would be interested in this… leave me a blog comment!

Anyhoo… thanks again Janee!

changes around the corner

December 17, 2009

If you check out my main website you will see a new (yet still similar) logo and a brand new layout! I am still in the process of updating my business policies and pricing structure for 2010. All these changes will go into affect on January 1st so all new bookings will fall under the new policies and prices. Please note, if you had a session in 2009 but never placed an order from your gallery you have until the end of this month to order prints before the increase in prices goes into effect.

Some changes you should note…

*Session fees will remain mostly the same. I’m going to tack on an extra $50 charge for newborn sessions if I have to pack up and go to your home. Remember session fees include the sales tax. I am also allotting $15 of the session fee to go to pay for location expenses… but if the client wants to have the session at a location that costs more than $15… they are responsible for paying the difference.

*I’m tightening up on the policy about galleries. The galleries will be available for 3 weeks. After your gallery expires you will be sent a bill (a paypal request for payment) for $30  if you want it made available again.

*Minimum orders will be inforced. You should be aware of the minimum order for the type of session you chose to have. If you place an order that is below the minimum you’ll receive and e-mail saying your order cannot be processed until the minimum is reached.

*Brag books of all the images will now sell for $100 each.

*Cards will be custom-designed for you based on your preferences. I will create a design and you will be allowed one revision. Any further changes will incur an additional design fee of $30 to compensate me for my time. Designing cards takes a considerable amount of my time and I try to create the very best design for the pictures you choose. Also PLEASE proofread every word of the card proofs when you view them… I’m a horrible speller!

*All orders over $500 will receive 3 complimentary mini accordions (click here and flip through to see images of these and other products).

*An electronic form must be signed to officially book your session.

*I will be taking a limited amount of sessions so that I don’t get so overwhelmed. Remember, I’m a mother of a 5 and 3-year-old, a registered nurse part time, and I also take on several free-lance graphic design jobs over the course of the year. I’ve got a LOT going on.

Feel free to e-mail me with any questions you may have. If you’d like more insight into the increase in pricing please check out the “why does custom photography cost so much” link at the top.
