Important Changes to Spring Scheduling!

This spring, there will be some important changes to scheduling with Studio 19 Photography. As most of you know, I am a mom of three boys, and that is my most important job. Spring is the busiest season of the year for our family, as two of the three boys are very actively involved in baseball. Last baseball season, I missed way too many baseball games because I was trying too hard to make sure that my business was running on all cylinders. From March til June or early July, my weekend schedule will be hit or miss, as one of my son’s baseball schedule seems like it will be made pretty much last minute every week. Because of this, my plan is to schedule very few sessions on Saturdays and Sundays. Monday-Friday I will be available from morning-evening to shoot. I understand that this may cause an inconvenience for some, so I do plan on holding mini sessions on some weekends when there is no baseball. If you MUST shoot during the weekend, I am willing to take a couple of hours away from my kid’s events, but during this season, I will have to increase my weekend fee. Those prices are coming soon. (This weekend price increase will NOT apply to those of you who are already scheduled for a weekend date)

Everyone knows how much I LOVE my job and love this business, but I have come to realize that their childhood is passing way too quickly to miss any more than absolutely necessary. I sincerely hope that I will have the understanding and support of all of my sweet friends and clients in this. It has weighed heavily on my mind and in my heart for weeks now! As ALWAYS, I love and appreciate each and every one of you who have been with me and watched and helped me grow as both a business owner and photographer as well as those of you who have come along further into my career!

If you have any questions, you can always email, Facebook, call or text me! Again, these changes do not apply to any sessions already scheduled! 🙂


Thank you!!!

Important Mini Session Dates!

Good afternoon! I just wanted to go ahead and set dates for the remaining mini sessions of the season!

November 1 will be Fall Minis. These will likely be 20 minute sessions at an outdoor location; most likely in Fultondale. They will be $100 and will be a great opportunity for updated family pictures, engagement pictures, Christmas gifts, updated pictures of the kids – you get the idea! There will be no theme here, just a perfect time for some beautiful new pictures!

November 8 will be the one and only date for Santa sessions this year. Most of these times have already been prescheduled, but I do have about 8 time slots left. I will likely be releasing those sign ups later today. They will be in Fultondale, 10 minute sessions, and $65.

November 22 and 28 will be Christmas Minis. I am planning on having these at a BEAUTIFUL indoor location here in Hayden. I am planning on having two options: Christmas PJs/bed/storytime and a more formal, in front of the fireplace, beautiful setting. It is possible, depending on demand, that I will also offer these for one date in December. I would also like to incorporate some “Santaless” Santa pictures. I have some cute ideas for these! These sessions will be GREAT for Christmas cards!! For these, I’m thinking either 10 or 15 minutes, and likely $50-$75. I’ll nail down these details soon!

The way I best plan is through FEEDBACK! Tell me what you want! Tell me what you love! The more feedback I have, the more I will be able to offer for you guys!!

Be on the lookout for the sign ups for these upcoming sessions! They usually go fast!

Only 70 more sleeps til Christmas! Not much longer to have your Christmas pictures made! 🙂
