As the holiday season approaches, I’d like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for following my blog over the past year. It is has been a true blessing to see the number of people who stop by and view my work. Blog readers: you help make my photography business successful!
With these Christmas wishes, I’d like to inform you of some exciting changes for Emily Dobson Photography that will be taking place as the 2010 year approaches. Recently, I have been reflecting on my business life and determining what has worked successfully and what could use a little tweeking! The major adjustments to be made are outlined in this post.
First, I will soon be taking some time off for the holidays and through the new year. I will be closed December 23 – January 5. While bookings will begin much sooner, sessions will start back up again mid to late February.
Probably the most exciting change is the launch of a brand new professional website! I am thrilled to finally have the opportunity to showcase several of my beautiful 2009 clients on an organized photo gallery website. Right now, I am refining all of the details with the goal of launching the site before December 31st. Please check my blog often for updates!
Over the past year, I have had the privilege of starting a brand new business and offering clients great start-up rates for custom photography. I am amazed at how God has blessed my business in these first several months, and grateful for the awesome clients I’ve had the pleasure of working with. As 2010 approaches, my session and product rates will be adjusted. However, anyone who wants to schedule a session for the 2010 year may do so by December 31st and still receive 2009 pricing. So think about those special events coming up whether you’re looking for senior pictures before graduation, a family Easter picture, or maybe a nice Mother’s Day gift, etc. I am currently accepting sessions all through the Spring. Please e-mail me at this brand new professional e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The first five people to book a session for 2010 will receive $20 off the session fee. In addition, I will give everyone who books a session scheduled in February a complimentary 8×10.
With a baby on the way and an expectation that every client receives the best service possible, I will be limiting my workload to a maximum of two sessions per week. These sessions will be conducted mainly on Monday and Tuesday afternoons/evenings with the occasional Saturday available for booking. Saturdays will be rare between youth and church ministry activities. If you wish (or prefer) to book a Saturday, please contact me as in advance as possible. I recommend booking sessions at least four weeks in advance. I am confident I will book up rather quickly. My daily workload and hours vary widely. My weekdays are filled due to my permanent substitute position with the Macon R-1 School District. During the evenings, I spend most of my time answering e-mails and editing photos. If you prefer phone contact, please specify this during initial contact, and I will give you a call as soon as I possibly can.
I hope you have found this post to be helpful and informative. If you’re not interested in booking another session, I ask that you pass the word along to others. Don’t forget, the first five people to book a session will receive $20 off the session fee, and 2009 pricing will be in effect for all sessions booked prior to 2010. In addition, everyone who books a session scheduled in February 2010 receives a complimentary 8×10.
May your Christmas and New Year be filled with much joy and happiness, and lots of good food too! And because everyone likes to see pictures on a photo blog, here are some great shots of my senior session with Ethan Hess (such a kind guy!):
