Minneapolis Newborn Photographer
It’s that time of year again. Everyone has finally gotten into the swing of Summer, and is starting to think about having family and baby photos done while it’s still warm. I mean this is Minnesota, it’ll be snowing in about 5 minutes. I’m sure of it.
The warm weather means my schedule fills up a little quicker than usual. In any given month I might be booked up only two or three weeks in advance. When it’s warm out, my sessions book much faster. I typically schedule 2-3 baby/family/maternity sessions each Saturday (giving myself a weekend off once every three or four weeks), and I schedule newborn sessions during the week. Right now, my schedule for Saturdays are full through mid October, with the exception of 1 opening in September. That may sound crazy, but like I mentioned we don’t have this gorgeous weather for very long in Minnesota, so I only book family sessions from the end of May through end of October. Sometimes we get lucky and will get a great Saturday in the 50’s in November, and then you can usually talk me into a November outdoor session.
I also don’t like to take on more than five newborn sessions per month. I never know when a baby will be born, and with only a couple weekdays available for newborn sessions, I have to make sure I can get all those newborns photographed before they get too old. And by “old” I mean 14 days or older 🙂 While I rarely have to turn down a newborn session because my schedule is already full, I foresee this happening over the next 6 months. I already have at least 2 newborns scheduled for everyone between now and January. I’ve had an absolutely crazy amount of inquiries the past few weeks, and it just doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Not a bad thing at all! But, it can be for you if you wait too long to contact me about scheduling your session. I absolutely hate saying “No” to inquiries, but in order to keep some sort of work-life balance I have to.
So this is my long winded warning. If you’ve been thinking about schedule a session but haven’t because you’ve been busy with other things, don’t put it off for another minute. Click the Contact link on my menu bar and send me an email.
