Good morning everyone!  I hope you are all thinking of ways to stay cool and safe during this super hot weather stretch we’re having.  It is going to be an interesting week, considering we won’t be spending a lot of time outdoors.  I am always so concerned with my kids overheating because they don’t know when to slow down!  Today’s plan is a well-baby checkup for Abigail at 10:30 and then playtime at McDonald’s.  Hopefully, we will be able to swing some early morning/late evening walks and playtime outside, because they go crazy if they are confined to the house for any length of time!

Anyways…..enough of my rambling – the point of this post was to let you all know about my new pricing.  It’s in a “trial” period right now to see how you all like it.  What I’m doing is charging a low Creation Fee for your session.  Then you can choose whatever you’d like to buy.  There is NO minimum purchase required at all.  You get what you want.  I am offering three different Collections starting at $145.  You don’t have to purchase a Collection; however, you can get some huge savings that way.

Another new thing that I’m offering is an Outtakes CD!  This is really exciting, because now you get to see ALL of your session images – not just the ones that I pick.  I will still pick my 20-30 favorites, after all, you are hiring me for my eye and professional opinion.  Those will be edited in my style and are considered your gallery images.  The rest are the Outtakes and will be color corrected with minimal editing.  The Outtakes CD will be available for purchase, as well.  You will have printing rights on those images up to 5×7, since they will mainly be for scrapbooking and things like that.  I am offering this now because you know your children and yourself best.  There might be an image with an expression you love and I don’t want you to miss out on that!  I hope you all are as excited as I am about this!  :-)  I just know that if I went to a photographer, I would want to see all of my images.  So, I am trying to give you what I know I’d like!

Have a great day and try to stay COOL!!

And because I hate to do posts without pictures – the photo of the day is “Curiosity” and it’s Abigail, on the 4th of July, walking around our yard…discovering.   She loves exploring new things and I love that spirit.
