With the new year approaching I’d like to take a moment and address some changes coming to our business. While we know change is hard and sometimes uncomfortable we are here for you. We can’t wait to introduce you to the new simply newborn and all we have to offer!!!
The first change is our schedule. A certain number of days are reserved for sessions each month and when they are gone they are gone. If you know you’ll be wanting portraits take this year do not delay. We are already closed for certain months.
Last year we had a many requests for more options. We had a lot of people asking “Do you have an option for less that included xyz” “I don’t really need 40 images can I get a package that has 20?” “Can I trade this for that?” Etc.
So we have developed a pricing structure that we think will have something for everyone and creates a build it your way sort of feel. Speaking of pricing some of our fees have gone up and some have gone down. Many factors, (most of which are out of our control) go into pricing. We strive to keep pricing fair and competitive. It’s no different than buying a new car. You wouldn’t expect a 2016 to cost what your new car cost in 2013.

The next change and probably the one most people will get nervous about is digital files. As an industry photographers are moving away from providing and selling digital images. While we are not eliminating them from our menu, they will certainly be priced based on their value. I’m willing to bet it will not be an option in a few years. Just as selling negatives was a no go many moons ago. We are all about quality and we cannot provide you with quality if you’re printing elsewhere.
Online galleries will be phased out and orders will be take in person. We have transitioned to in-person reveal and ordering sessions. This is so much fun! We come to you, or you can come to us and we go through your images one by one and select products and prints to suit your needs. It’s like Christmas morning seeing you guys experience your images for the first time! It has quickly become one of my favorite parts of the experience 🙂
Referrals. I suck at keeping track. Sorry. I’m planning a better system. Promise.
One thing that’s constantly being refined is our style. This year we are going for timelessness. Neutral colors, simplistic posing and props. <—hence the big prop sale 🙂
One thing that hasn’t changed. Our commitment to you. Our devoted and loyal clients.
<—-even if you’ve strayed and had a photographer affair, we still love you!
We promise to aim for perfection, provide products of the highest quality and pour love in every image as we always have. Many of you are more like family to us. We can’t wait to see you on the other side of our lens in 2016!!
