Hey everybody! Believe it or not, now is the time to book a date for some family portraits. Like most people, I find it really gross when retail stores push holidays on us WAY too early. However, I will risk upping my own grossness factor in order to let folks know that there are reasons to hop on the photo train sooner rather than later. First of all, scheduling shoots on weekends tends to work best for a lot of families. This time of year, between portrait sessions and weddings, weekends book up real darn fast. Also, we want to allow enough time to plan your shoot (location, styling, etc), take the photos, edit them, deliver them, and make sure you have plenty of time if you want to use the images for creating/ordering holiday cards to send out. Give me a holler if you think it’s time for some updated photos of your family, or if you just want to play with my bucket of fake snow. Yes!
