As many of my clients are aware, I’m quite backed up with edits, adjustments, and enhancements. I typically prefer to book in three or four sessions a week, which then allows me to get all of my post-shoot work done that same week. I know what it’s like having to wait on a disc (or on anything else you are excited about) and do my best to cut down wait time as much as possible. Lately though, it has been taking a month or (as I’m now telling clients) two to get folks their disc of images.
Why the wait?
To get in as many folks who purchased my groupon as possible, before the extended expiry, there are DAYS when I’ve booked in as many sessions as I would normally shoot in a week. Yep, you read that right. One week of shooting compressed into one day, with multiple days a week you can only imagine how quickly the stack of “to be edited” shoots can grow. But, I figure that in this instance, shooting has to take priority, and I SOOOO appreciate your patience. This is out of the ordinary for me, and I do feel so badly that things are taking this long… So thank you. Thank you for understanding.
This backlog of edits, also means I haven’t been sharing previews on my blog very often. I love doing it, but it takes extra time to upload all the images… and that’s just time that I haven’t had lately. This photo though? This one I had to share. 🙂 This photo BEGGED me to share it. It got down on it’s knees, clasped it’s hands, gave me puppy dog eyes, and pleaded oh so heart-wrenchingly to be shared. So what else could I do? I promised to share it.
I love this picture. I truly do. It speaks volumes about this family, about the love they share, about the kinship and camaraderie present in their relationships. And even beyond what is so obvious to anyone who sees this photo, is the story about the place. This is where the Lardner family will be building their future home. The place where they will continue to grow together, building together, creating bonds and memories that will help shape them.
What a fabulous memory in such an awesome place. I was privileged to be a small part in creating it.
