I have been back and forth in my mind about changing my pricing structure for my clients. There are of course pros and cons to changing prices, as there are for every decision in life. At the end of my reflection, I realized the pros far outweigh the cons. I have been so busy trying to fit my clients into my UNBELIEVABLY full schedule that I have had to turn clients away, be away from my family for WAY too many hours, and my turn around time for sessions has turned into a longer amount of time than I want my clients to wait for their images. My goal is to be the BEST I can possibly be for my clients, and to do that I have to stop spreading myself so thin. My demand has become much higher and therefor my prices need to reflect that. While I do not feel that owe anyone justification for my pricing changes, I do fully believe in open communication with my clients as YOU are the reason I get to do what I love while providing for my family.
While my prices have changed, I have also opted to completely change my structure. According to my client feedback, you prefer a simple, easy to read and understand structure. My portrait packages have been narrowed down to two choices and i've ADDED an all new "yearly pass" for my repeat clients looking to save money on bundles!
As for my wedding clients, I have RARELY booked under 6 hours of coverage time and have decided to make your choices more appealing. I've added the option of ALL DAY coverage, a beautiful wedding album, as well as new Ala Carte options. Yes my prices have increased, and the very simple reason is that my demand has increased dramatically.
I'm so unbelievably lucky to be serving my clients, doing what I love, providing for my family, and growing each and every session that I shoot. I cannot thank YOU, my clients, enough for coming along on this journey with me! It's been such an amazing ride and I can't wait to see what the coming years have in store for us!
