So..... Surprise! I'm closing down my schedule.
Are you freaking out? Did you want a session? REST AT EASE... Every little thing... is gonna be alright. Did you just start singing in your head? I did. Don't mind me: I digress.
You want a session? Don't worry. You can still have one.
2016 was my first year of going full time with photography. I've learned a lot on the business side and have really been working to develop a photography business to last. Taking workshops, undergoing some mentoring, soaking up sparkly goodness from profitable business savvy photographers...
The average photographer that doesn't work to develop a strong business foundation will be out of business in just a few short years. I've been a "photographer" for 6 almost 7 years now but this year I really studied the business side in a way I've never done before. I've studied, researched, crafted, spent hours and hours behind the scenes working and learning on the best way to improve my business.
2017 is going to be awesome. I am excited to be doing things a little differently. We are moving to an exclusive scheduling system.
Essentially here is how it is going to work:
>My schedule will open up 3 times in 2017<
At this point the plan is to open up
- Spring: February 1st for bookings through the end of April.
- Summer: May 1st for bookings through the end of July. and the big one...
- Fall: August 1st for bookings through the end of October
There will be limited spaces available. The deal is this: I'll send out an email that says something along the lines of: "Spaces are available - here are your options" (Hopefully crafted a little more fun.. but that's the basic idea) And you will be quick to respond with your date and time choices. Because you will have been watching for the whole week prior on social media, in your email, etc - that my schedule was about to open... and you'll have been waiting on the edge of your seat! Right? Right!
Then invoices will go out to pay for your session fee... and then you're on the books. and my schedule will be once again closed until the next opening date!
I will be sure to keep all of you hopefuls aware and reminded about when my schedule is opening up so you can set an alarm, get your friends on my email list, remember to watch your email, or however you get there.
But here is the kicker... You have to be ON my email list to get this invitation to book!
SO the moment you've all been waiting for: Click here to sign up for my email list so you can be ready when the time comes! Dont worry. I will not be spamming you. You'll get info once in awhile when things are happening. At some point soon - an email series will go out with lots of details about how working with me goes (Booking process, preparation ideas, print prices, product details and what to expect... etc). Other than that you'll only get emails from me when specials come up, booking is opening soon, or anything else exciting that I dig up. My goal is value only though! So don't you worry.
Keep in mind, getting on this email list is the only way to get a session with me once 2017 hits!
(I do still have a few spots for 2016 if you need to hop in before the end of the year.)
- If I ever release mini session events - it'll be through the email list.
- If I ever offer Holiday Specials, it'll be through the email list.
- If I ever plan an event,
- have a sale,
- or book sessions...
it will be through this email list.
And just so you know - in case you're planner-self isn't ready for the commitment... don't worry! Being on the list does not mean you're locked into a session. You'll just be ready for the process and know what to expect.
Oh - and guess what? Right now I'm offering a free downloadable guide when you sign up for the list - it's called: "Make Getting 'Camera Ready' Easy"
