It’s been a strange time to be a photographer… Because we are not considered an “essential business”, I’m not able to carry out photography sessions. However, I’m still staying busy, finding ways to make my business even better in 2020 for you all. I will have a new price list, new products (the frames below are a sneak preview) and a fully redesigned studio to share with you very soon! In the meantime, I’m still processing orders, making albums and framing prints, so if you’re wanting to do a photo-project with me, don’t hesitate to ask. Chances are, you’ll get my full attention, so it’s a good time to get that album you’ve always wanted or get those prints on the wall. I’m also booking tentative shoot dates for late May through June and July. From the looks of it, there will be a big rush of shoots as soon as the shelter in place order is lifted, so if you’ve been wanting a spot, best to reserve one now!
In the meantime, if you’d like to help a woman-owned small business, here are some things you can do to help your photographer during this time:
1. Write a Review
This is the most important way you can help your favorite photographer (like me – ha!) any time of the year. Writing a review not only gives insight to new clients about your experience, but it also helps boost my search ranking in Google, making my website easier to find on the web. This will help new and future clients find my website in the sea of Sacramento photographers on the internet. The best places to leave your reviews are on Yelp and my Google business page.
2. Purchase Albums, Prints and More
At the end of your photo session, I send out an online gallery for you to review all of your photos. This is the best time to buy albums, prints, canvases and any other home décor I offer. It’s best to buy prints directly from your photographer since they provide the highest quality products from the best professional printing labs in the country. Photos are your most important heirlooms, so invest in your family legacy by buying quality photos from me. If you’ve had a session with me in the past, there’s a good chance I still have the images on file. Give me a call if you’d like to create an album or wall display for your home.
3. Reserve a Future Session
Do you plan on booking a session later this year, maybe for your fall family portraits or Christmas cards? One way you can help is by booking that session today. We don’t have to pick an exact date now, but just knowing which month you’d like to have it in will save a spot for you. The holidays are the busiest time of the year. Booking your session now will give one less thing to worry about.
I have so much gratitude for all of my clients for supporting me! I appreciate your business (past, present and future) and wish you all the best in this uncertain time.
