Dover, New Philadelphia OH photographer | small changes for 2015

As you may have noticed, I’ve been trying to catch up on some blogging over the Christmas break and my slow season. Facebook has (once again) announced some changes for business pages that will make it harder for us to be seen beginning January 1st. While this isn’t anything new (they change things ALL.OF.THE.TIME.), this just gave me a much needed push to implement a few changes in the way I get in touch with you. While I do love Facebook and everything it’s done for my small growing business, I don’t want to rely on it either. I want my business to do well with or without FB. Most importantly, I want to be sure I can still reach my clients (YOU!!!) and vice versa if ever there isn’t a Brandi Williamson Photography business Facebook page. <—– In the meantime, there is the link for said page. 😉

Okay let’s bring on the new and improved BWP!!!! ……

POSTING AND NOTIFICATION CHANGES:

Starting in 2015, I will be doing less Facebook and more blogging, Google+ and emails. Make sure you’re connected to see the latest from me and to find out about upcoming fun mini sessions and specials!! Follow my blog and subscribe via email too! Updates and photos will still be posted on Facebook, however I believe less of you will be able to view them. It’s already slim pickings now. :/ I don’t want anyone to be left out!

PRICING CHANGES:

If you’ve previously booked, you are eligible to receive 2014 pricing. If you’d rather have the updated 2015 pricing, you may. Just tell me either way which you would prefer. 🙂 I’ve redesigned my pricing structure to ensure that everyone receives digitals AND professional prints. All sessions will now include both!!!

The “HALF” sessions will include a smaller amount of digitals and print proofs and be less of an investment for those on a budget. They have the option of adding more digitals if you desire only a few extra, plus a 10% discount on prints + products.

The “FULL” sessions are just that. You’ll receive all of the finished images in your gallery via digital download (CDs will still be available upon request) and you also will receive a 4×6 print proof of each image in your gallery!!!! AWESOME! And if that isn’t enough, you also get a $75 print credit to purchase other size prints (wallets, 5x7s, 8x10s, 10x13s, 11x14s or bigger!!!). Not to mention a 25% discount on said prints + products.

The Baby’s First Year Plans now come with… wait for it…. 10×10 CANVAS GALLERY WRAPS!!!!!!!!!!!! One from each milestone session! YES! Just think what an amazing display you’ll have a the end of the year! ❤

For those of you who do enjoy having professional prints and lots of them, I will still be offering my print packages in addition to the new all inclusive options. And the best news? My print prices will be lowered… A LOT! 🙂 YAY!

Retainer fee’s are now able to be paid for online with a few clicks! Easy peasy!!

You can view the new pricing structure now on my website under the Investment tab. CLICK HERE TO VIEW WEBSITE

Besides the print packages being lowered (again YAY!), if you really look in detail at the pricing…. Nothing, I repeat, NOTHING is going up in price. I’ve just combined it all together instead of session fee + digitals/prints/products. Now it’s just combined into an easy lump sum and much less confusing. Like I mentioned, the “FULL” sessions will still come with a print credit so you can purchase additional print sizes for your home and I am not taking away the print packages. Those are staying exactly the same… only cheaper. And who doesn’t like that? 😉

No worries, yes I will still be hosting my annual holiday mini sessions throughout the year. Easter chicks anyone? 😉

REFERRAL PROGRAM IS BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER:

Dover, New Philadelphia children’s photographer | great outdoor mini

When you look back and remember your childhood… what do you see? I see trees and grass and imagination and creeks and MESSES! Two of my favorite childhood homes included all of these things right at my backdoor and the time spent playing in those areas are some of my favorite. So I had these sessions in mind for awhile. Lucky for me, one of my best friends (Julie of Country Summers Photography) also had a similar vision in mind. We put our heads together and our plans combined with an AMAZING location provided by some of my favorite-est clients produced these adorable photos of some of my little clients!  New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014New Philadelphia, Dover, Bolivar Ohio children's photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | © Brandi Williamson Photography 2014© Brandi Williamson Photography 2014 | Dover, New Philadelphia, Bolivar Ohio children’s photographer | Great Outdoor Mini Sessions | Tuscarawas County Ohio

Dover, New Philadelphia OH newborn + family photographer + newborn mentoring | callie + zelda mae

This past August, I had the opportunity to meet and mentor Jamie, of Tiltawhirl Photography. Let me tell you first, she is so sweet and down to earth. Jamie is a fantastic photographer too! I’ve been following her for awhile and just this past year she has sky rocketed. Make sure you stop by her website and view her work. Absolutely breath-taking!!! And her house!!! GAH! I love it. So adorable and well designed!! It was a joy to spend the day with her photographing and snuggling on little bitty newborns! We spent some time going over setting up for a newborn shoot in the studio before the babies arrived. Once we were all ready, we jumped right in!! My approach to teaching is very hands on. I learn best that way and feel that most others do as well. Typically I will start the posing off first and have my mentoree perfect the pose or put their own spin on it as we go. Of course, safety is always key. I am there to make sure baby stays safe and secure at all times. I will show the basics of posing different set-ups and then if baby is willing, I will have my mentoree try it as well. With Jamie, she needed just basic posing skills and more Photoshop editing of newborn skin (it can be so tricky!!!). We used natural lighting for these sessions since that is what Jamie was most used to and had available. 🙂 A little different for me since I haven’t done natural light in studio for years, but it was fun!

First we photographed Jamie’s own niece, 7 days new Callie. ❤ Little sweet pea!Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (4)Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (3)Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (2)We also photographed 4 days new, Zelda Mae (LOVE ❤ THE NAME!) and her family. 🙂 Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (7)Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (6)Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (1)Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (8)She wasn’t entirely sure about this idea… 😉 Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (9)I was busy and mainly concentrating on making sure Jamie was having a good experience and being hands on for photographing and posing the babies, so I honestly didn’t take many photos myself. I did manage to grab at least one behind the scenes shot of Jamie capturing the family shot of Zelda Mae and her Mom and Dad. ❤ Green Ohio, Dover, New Philadelphia Ohio newborn photographer & mentoring (5)Are you interested in mentoring with me? Contact me at info@brandiwilliamsonphotography.com with NEWBORN MENTORING in the subject line. 🙂

Here is some of what Jamie had to say after mentoring:

“Thank you, Brandi!! You cut down my editing time so much, and if I can just get past my fears about putting something out there and then wishing I could get it back and edit and re-edit and edit again, then hopefully I will be in a place where I’m not spending so much time stressing!! I am so grateful to you for all you taught me. I am actually excited for the next time I will have a newborn in the studio. And I actually think I’m prepared if I would get a last minute call for a newborn, whereas before our mentoring session, I would just panic and do all I could to find another photographer for whomever called. (But I will continue to take great comfort knowing that I have an amazing photographer just down the road to refer clients to!) Working with you was awesome, and I hope to have the opportunity to do it again.” – Jamie E.
