St. Louis newborn and family photographer
2015 schedule updates
Oh my goodness.
There are not enough words to describe the gratitude I have for St. Louis. When I first moved here one year ago from Chicago, I was nervous about being able to grow my business as quickly as I needed to. Kenny took a leap of faith, left his job at the Chicago Board of Trade to take up a job with CBS Radio. A TOTAL career change. From crazy hand signals, to crazy media people haha. With career changes, come salary cuts. It’s kinda like starting over. So I needed to make sure I would maintain the level of business I had back in Chicago.
I am from St. Louis originally. I grew up here but moved away about 17 years ago, so moving home was not so much home anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I still bled red, and with Kenny being a Cubs fan, we had a mixed marriage for awhile there. Moving back to redbird country was an easy transition for me. People are just NICE here. The traffic is better, the weather is better, and people are NICE.I can’t say that enough how important nice people are to me haha. KMOX greeted Kenny on his first day of work with a Cardinals and Blues pin to be worn on his suit (woah we had to buy suits). No other way than cold turkey right? The Cubs were an easier transition. He’s still a diehard Blackhawks fan. That will never change.
So I want to thank you all for allowing me to grow here in a way, that for the first time since I have been in this business, I KNOW will will book up my sessions. As a photographer, well anyone in “sales”, not knowing, is scary. So thank you. It means more than you will ever know to have that burden released. On that note, this year I will be taking a few less shoots. For 2015, because I will be spending a bit more time with the little guys and I need to keep nights open for weather issues. I will only 2 nights per week and one weekend per month. I will also take 6 newborns per month, so please always contact me about newborns. I book those differently than my very scheduled sunset sessions.
This is hard for me to write as it’s SO hard for me to turn people away, or push them off until 2016. You know those moms who go onto Pinterest and actually follow through with all that stuff? Yeah that’s not me. I wish it were! But it’s not. Well those super planners, have already planned half of my 2015 haha! This is why I am writing this post. So you can all jump in before all those super planners grab my sessions. I will keep this post updated and linked on my concat page. I will change the dates as they are taken.
Right now I am only booking into Sept. I will release my October dates once we know our family (planning) schedule a bit come January ;).
Here is my current session openings. Thank you again for always being so amazing. You all make my heart so happy to have the love of photography and capturing moments as I do. xoxo
