Dear ones, many of you have been with me since the very beginning. I was a newbie, eager to learn and eager to shoot. I was a newlywed myself, living in a new town and didn’t know a soul. Ten years later, I’ve stuck it out in business (with the amazing support and encouragement from my family, friends and YOU!), had three beautiful children, celebrated 11 wedding anniversaries and have grown tremendously in my skill and business knowledge. I’ve had the opportunity to work in other countries that I could have only dreamed about, to work with other small business owners, to cheer on peers in this often, challenging industry. I’ve walked down the aisle with countless brides on their wedding day, witnessed the first days at home with your brand new babies, cried with the Moms when they dance with their sons on their wedding day. I count it ALL JOY, my friends. Every single second.

This is the 10th year that I’ve been in business and it has been such a privilege to do what I do for that long. It has also been 4 years now since I’ve adjusted my prices to reflect many other changes taking place in the industry, technology and the cost of doing business. I’ve continued to invest right back into my business over these years to ensure that my clients are receiving the best quality photographs and heirlooms.

SO, with all of that being said, I am formally announcing that as of January 1, 2019, my portrait and wedding collection prices will reflect a slight increase. However, since so many of you have been so loyal over the years, I want to extend a special offer. If you purchase a gift certificate in the remaining weeks of 2018, you will be able to redeem it for a shoot in 2019 with the current pricing – before the increase! If you know that you’re going to want a photo session next year at any point, I’d encourage you to buy a gift certificate now before the price goes up in 2019! This would make a very thoughtful, worthwhile Christmas present 😉 Orders placed before December 20, 2018 will be delivered before Christmas (stay tuned for a picture of how the gift certificates will be dressed up!)! To order a gift certificate, please e-mail me directly at melissaBphoto@gmail.com or use the “Contact Me” form.

Here you can see the changes you can expect in 2019:

  • A more luxurious delivery of wedding images/USB drives
  • An expanded styling kit for wedding day details
  • Increased style support for photo sessions
  • Added communication including surveys and newsletters
  • Blogging on a more regular basis

Here are the new prices that will go into effect on January 1, 2019:

  • Portrait Sessions (families, newborns, seniors, etc): $650
  • Wedding Collections: Starting a $2,900 for basic coverage (4 hours + 1 Photographer)
  • Baby’s First Year Collection: $1,400

Here are some NEW services I’ll be offering starting in 2019 for small businesses and individuals:

  • Custom Photography for Small Businesses (Branding + Social Media + Products)
  • Visual Consulting for Small Businesses (Coaching teams of small businesses to create their own images in-house for social media and marketing purposes)
  • Photography Mentoring + Workshops for Individuals
  • Strategic Planning + Social Media Management for Small Businesses

 

My goal is to deliver the finest images to you, my dear clients! My hope is that you will truly treasure these timeless photographs, and pass them down as a legacy to your family. We all know time is so fleeting. Investing in your family or wedding photographs can be something you can look back on in love, amazement and in sweet, sweet memory.

Bring on the Change!
