I think one of the most beautiful aspects of my job is the growth I experience. Each session, each client, each year, I learn something new; something more. When I compare my work today to work six years ago, I wonder how I ever even started! I wonder why anyone would trust me. But, I started out pro bono and I built on my portfolio and then I began pricing adequately. As my work improves and as I grow both as a person, a business woman, a mother and an artist, my need to alter said pricing follows suit.
At this point in my career, I struggle most with time. Everyone who has hired me, knows that my daughter comes first in my life and before work, always. So, it is from the deepest part of my heart that I truly believe that my time and talent are worth a pay raise. It’s taken me two years to decide on this as my pricing has remained the same throughout that period of time.
With all of that being said, effective January 1st, 2015, my pricing will increase in increments of $75 per photo session. All other session details and ordering specifics remain the same. Until then, my pricing will be as it is posted on the website.
It is busy season for me but I still have a few sporadic dates available throughout the month of November and early into December. If you would like to receive current pricing, you may book anytime by contacting me either on the website or at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, if you wish to book your photo session for next year in advance, you will receive the current pricing. This, of course, is pending session retainer payment prior to January 1st.
Thank you for being so understanding and for appreciating my worth and the time and love that I pour into every single image that I provide for my clients. You all are simply the best and this “job” wouldn’t be as lovely and enjoyable as it is if it weren’t for folks, like you, who truly understand the reasoning for my business decisions.
All of my love.
