Over 25 years as a professional photographer. Yes, I’m still running a full time photography business. While during the past 25 years I have pretty much photographed everything you can imagine – and worked 7 days a week for the past 25 years…. I’m cutting my work-schedule to 5 days a week. Shocker – I know.
Lots of people out there realize this is what normal people do – work 40 hour work weeks. I have not known a 40 hour work week since I was 18 years old. I didn’t become a Brand Partner at Nerium because I’m quitting my labor of love for photography. I partnered with Nerium, because I wanted to:
1. Focus on my family
2. Focus on my best customers and give them the attention they deserve
3. Focus on photography that gives the most back to my heart.
Being a Nerium Brand-Partner has simply allowed me to do more of what I love to do AND have a family/personal life going forward.
Long-time loyal clients, I will always photograph anything for them within the new 5 day work week.
However, I will be having a little more focus going forward.
Weddings – Materinty/Newborns – Family Portraits
Styled portraits (children & women)
Dance/ballet Fine Art Portraits
Food photography (limited to 2 corporate clients/year)
Because we are going to a NORMAL work-schedule, some times of the year will book up more quickly. I will continue to do fall family days each year. If you are pregnant and looking forward to newborn portraits, we will schedule a date based on your due date and then leave flexibility in the schedule so that we can assure time to photograph your newborn when they actually do arrive (sooner or later smile emoticon
