Today marks the beginning of a new phase for me. I have officially begun my maternity leave. We have a few odds and ends to get taken care of around the homestead before the baby’s here. AAAAAAaaaaahhh!! Okay, minor freak-out over…for now. (No, I’m not getting nervous at all!)
Since we are due anytime between March 3 and 9, I will not be booking or shooting any new sessions to take place between now and May 15. (This period of no-shooting may last longer, but it does depend on how everything goes. I don’t know entirely how to plan since this is our first baby.) Sessions which have already been in the planning stage will go on as planned. I will be available to design products and prepare photos from previous sessions for printing. Just make sure to give me a 2 week lead time before regular print orders need to be delivered and at least 5 week lead time on designer press products (unless you are willing to forgo proofing designs before printing; this will shave off a week and a half to 2 weeks).
As I am going to be shooting our son’s newborn photos (and probably my sister’s new babe who is on the way as I type), I will have a small window in early March where I will be willing to shoot a few sessions. I will let everyone know as soon as I know when I will be doing that. I can’t wait to share those photos with you all!
Also, in the 3 months I am off I will continue to take consultations for future sessions and weddings. I will also continue to post Photoshop tutorials, design templates, wedding tips, and session ideas. Keep an eye out, too, for specials I may have for when I resume sessions!
Feel free to let me know things you would like to see and hear about over the next few months. And, as always, if you know anyone who will be in need of photos send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them to “like” RTC PhotoWork on Facebook. I have an awesome referral program that rewards you as well as those who you send my way.
If there are any changes to plans, I will post it here, on Facebook, and on Twitter to let you all know as soon as I can…so keep in touch!
By the way, happy Valentine’s Day!
