It's been quiet around here for the past month or so, and I apologize! I've been so busy with sessions and weddings, editing, traveling, and all of the holiday things that come along this time of year. :) I've also been doing a lot of thinking about JMP and the direction I want to go in the new year.
My life has changed a lot this past year with the birth of Adler and homeschooling Hadley. I feel like I've lost focus in photography for the past few months, and for that I'm sincerely sorry. I'm ready to get back on track and I'm ready to share some of my new ideas with you!
2015 is going to be about change for JMP. It's going to be about more personalized service. It's going to be about doing more of what I'm passionate about. It's going to be about providing better work and better products for you, my clients and friends. It's going to be about putting more of myself out there and letting you get to know me and my life.
The first (and probably biggest!) change for this next year is that I will no longer be offering wedding photography. I love weddings and I love working with brides to make their big day special, but right now photographing weddings just isn't practical for me and my family. I will still consider photographing small weddings and elopements as those are near and dear to my heart, but going forward I will no longer be offering all day wedding packages.
The second change is that I am going to focus solely on portraits: families, couples, individuals, children. I want to offer completely customized portrait sessions, and I will be making an effort to get to know YOU and make your session truly one of a kind! I will be offering a pre-session consultation to chat about your vision, assist with picking outfits, and choose the perfect location. You will receive all edited digital images in an online gallery within 2 weeks (guaranteed!) that you can share with family and friends. You will also receive a cute little package containing a flash drive of all images and maybe a surprise or two! I will be offering a post-session meeting where we can talk about printing your photos and you can order prints from my professional lab at a discounted rate.
There are more changes in the works, of course, but I just wanted to share the two most important ones with you today. :) I'm working on revamping my prices and packages, and the website and blog will be getting a face lift in the next month or so as well.
I hope you're as excited as I am about the new and improved JMP! I truly hope these changes make my business and my work that much better, and I hope they serve my client's needs and wants. :)
