Crickets… that’s what you will be hearing from my blog over the next couple of weeks as I (finally) have a chance to go home to Washington to visit my family for pretty much the first time since we moved here over three years ago. While away, I will also be visiting with some colleagues in both the Bay area of California and the south-eastern part of Ireland, and I can’t wait. When I return, I have just a handful of things to finish up (including a newborn session to shoot!) before beginning my maternity leave in preparation for the arrival of my own 5th baby (lovingly known as “Lemonhead”). So, if things are a little dead around here, that would be why:).
To clients who have already placed orders: your products should be on their way to your homes, with the exception of coffee table books which will arrive at the studio while I am away. I will contact you when the studio reopens at the end of July to arrange the pick-up of your books–I can’t WAIT to see them all!
To clients waiting on galleries: I will try to have those up just as soon as I can after my return, either late July or early August.
To prospective clients hoping to schedule a maternity or newborn session (a session that cannot be postponed): If you are due from late September to early November, feel free to contact me. We can discuss the possibility of holding a session, however, I will not be solidly booking newborn and maternity sessions until November. Also, if you are looking for a referral for a photographer you can trust with your newborn portraits and the timing doesn’t work out for us, I would be happy to give you the names of my talented colleagues:).
To prospective clients hoping to book something other than a maternity or a newborn session: I will be booking baby sessions again in January of 2012 and outdoor family and child sessions beginning in mid-late April of 2012.
That’s about it for now. Hopefully, my pregnancy self survives flying multiple thousands of miles in the third trimester, part of the time with my four kids and no husband, and returns energized and ready to close everything out before Lemonhead arrives. Once she does, I have no doubt I will more than make up for my lack of posting. Proud mama and all that:).
Have a lovely, lovely summer!
