It always seems so early to be thinking about the holidays as the summer is still blazing here. But the fall is my absolute BUSIEST time of year and my schedule is filled to the brim with weddings, brand sessions and portraits. I always like to post Holiday Ordering Deadlines early because often clients contact me during the thick of things in October in November and likely by that time I’m already booked solid OR my album deadline has passed.
If 2019 is anything like fall of last year, I’m in for a very, very busy season. Last year I worked right up to Christmas Eve and delivered galleries as Santa was delivering his gifts in Europe.
So, I’m jumping ahead of the game while my head is still above water to let everyone know about my deadlines so no one misses out. So if you’re thinking of booking a Brand Shoot, Portrait Session OR ordering an Album you’ll want to contact me ASAP in order to secure your spot.
—PLACE YOUR ORDER BEFORE THE FOLLOWING DEADLINES TO ASSURE ARRIVAL IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS WITH STANDARD SHIPPING.—
In order to receive your order by Christmas 2019, your order must be placed by the following dates:

Album Deadlines are listed above but to reiterate, if you’d like your album delivered prior to the holidays you will need to place your order for your album before August 23rd. At that time, the design process will begin and you’ll have until September 30th to approve your final design.
Whether you’d like your album for the holidays or after, I’m having a little album sale on all new album orders for current or past clients! Email me to receive your discount code for 20% OFF your Album purchase at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’ve been considering booking a Brand Shoot before the end of the year, I have very limited availability remaining. I have the most availability in the next month, prior to September 15th so please reach out ASAP – especially if you need images for your Holiday / Winter marketing needs.
September, October and November dates are available on a limited basis.
You can reach out here to tell me more about your business and what your needs are and you will receive a full guide to my brand packages including pricing: BOOK A BRAND SHOOT
*I always recommend that clients book more than 1 month prior to their session so that we have time to fully plan their session, secure a location and concept/plan as well as bring on board a stylist if needed.*
I will be offering some group Fall Portrait Sessions only on scheduled dates at a set location – TBD. If you’re on this email list you’ll receive separate emails once those dates are released and to book your session.
If you’d like to schedule a personalized and Private Portrait Session at a location of your choice, I have 2 Sessions available in September, 2 in October and 2 in November. Reach out to me ASAP to reserve your session date – BOOK MY PRIVATE FALL PORTRAIT SESSION
That is all for now, but look for more emails soon updating availability as well as announcing group Fall Portrait Dates!
