I know it’s a bit early to be thinking about holiday cards and fall family portraits, but for me it’s never too early to plan. As many of you know, I’ll be taking the entire month of October off for my wedding and honeymoon, which is sort of bad timing for my business. Many of my clients have annual family portraits in the fall to use for their holiday cards or to give as Christmas gifts to their loved ones. Because I won’t be working in October, the window in which to get your annual portraits done just got a lot smaller, so now is the time to start planning and thinking about when you want to schedule your portrait session. I will definitely get booked up more quickly this year.
The deadline to have your portrait session done and have your photographs by Christmas will be December 5th. If you want me to design a holiday card for your family, the deadline to have your portrait session done will be November 20th. I have to set these deadlines in order to make sure that I can keep up with both editing and client orders. So the time to schedule is now.
I would suggest booking your session in September, or early November. I have already booked up a couple of weekends in the fall, so if you know you’ll want portraits sometime before the end of the year, please don’t wait to schedule something. Since I have such limited availability, I will try very hard to accommodate everyone who books early. I will definitely be working overtime in September to make up for October. If you have a date in mind, just let me know, and I’ll get it on my calendar!
I’m already so excited about the great people I’ll be working with this fall!
And because every post needs a picture, here is a photograph I took from our roof this past weekend. It’s been extremely smoggy in NYC the past few weeks, as you can see:
