4 Years In…
June 1st is my birthday. My business birthday that is.
I would like to thank all of my wonderful friends and clients and clients who are now friends. It is because of y’all that I am where I am today! June 1st is my birthday. It is my business birthday. I have officially adopted that date as my start of business. A few of you know that before 4 years ago I also had a full time job while running my business. But circumstances came up that provided me the opportunity to take that leap. And I am so blessed with the outcome! But with growth comes a few changes.
So what is changing?
Everything. Well not everything. Let me tell you a short story but first let me ask you a question. How many of you, my wonderful clients/friends, have a usb that I have made or a downloaded link that I have provided you and it is sitting in a drawer? Or on the computer? How many? Honestly I can raise my hand too. I print a lot of images of my kiddos. We have a wall gallery that grows with them. I have a few albums of special moments. But I have so many images that live on hard drives it should be an embarrassment to me.
So back to my story… I was talking with one of my favorite clients and she said she hasn’t ‘done’ anything with her pictures yet. But plans too. Y’all, this is where I have failed you. And I want to make it up to you! I have failed you at the core of my promise to create art for your home. Now I know that might scare you… You might be looking at your screen and saying but I want digitals. Did you know that every print you purchase includes a digital copy? Did you know that any album I create for you includes a digital copy of the images inside that album? The same goes for my mini albums, wall art, gift portraits, collages, metallic, acrylics, metal prints, coffee table books.
So what does this mean for me (well for you)?
Viewing and ordering appointments. I know we are all busy so these will be custom to YOU. Whether you would like to meet in a coffee shop, at your home, or at my home. Current and travel clients even can connect their appointments by Skype and by phone because they understand the process already.
Oh great now she is going to pressure me for a sale.
Nope! I don’t want to pressure anyone into anything. But I will help guide you to what you want. And get it done for you. Y’all are busy and do not need the burden of ordering prints or albums. That is my job! I will take on that burden for you.
But what about Mini Sessions and Limited Edition Sessions? Are they going away? Will I have to do an ordering appointment?
They aren’t going away! I love them, y’all love them. Yes we will do a consult for your ordering. I know my wonderful busy mom clients might need a break, so how about a coffee shop date to view your gallery! My newborn clients already know that I love snuggling the babies while they view their galleries.
I will also be adding a few new kinds of sessions that will be personalized to YOU! Lifestyle sessions, documentary sessions, and childhood magic sessions. Do you want an elaborate themed cake smash? Or to create a magical birthday milestone session? These are coming y’all!
I don’t want to do that at all.
That’s ok. I want to spend my working time creating art for your family. I want your kiddos to be able to see their pictures on their walls. I want their self esteem to go up because they pass by their beautiful pictures every day. I want them to be able to look at a newborn album of them when they are 4 or 5 or the weekend before they graduate high school.
Thank you again for reading all of this. While some changes take a little while to make, these will go into effect on June 1st. These changes might look scary but they aren’t. I promise.
