We are excited to announce there will be a new, little member joining our family this summer! We are definitely thrilled but a little nervous as parents to become outnumbered. But, if there is one thing of which I am certain, there will be so much more to love to share!
Love is already evident in the way the kids reacted to the news. They really picked up on what was happening once we got to see little ‘Nugget’ on ultrasound and hear his or her heartbeat. My starting-to-show bump gets kisses nearly every day, and the most popular question is asked in the morning, “Is the baby still in your tummy?” Like with our two others, we will be leaving baby’s sex up to surprise on arrival day!
Speaking of that, arrival day is expected to be mid-July. However, if baby follows big brother’s footsteps, baby could arrive some time in the end of June. So, what does that mean for my photography?
I will be booking sessions up to but no later than June 16th, 2017 in order to ensure I can finish editing, designing, and ordering for all clients prior to baby. I will begin taking bookings again for October 1st, 2017 and beyond, just in time to capture the beautiful autumn colors. For current newborn clients, I will continue to book baby milestone sessions throughout my maternity leave as possible. During this time, I will also do my best to return emails, calls and texts, but I ask for your patience if I am not able to get back to you within a day or two.
I will admit I am bummed knowing that taking time off this summer will take a serious toll on my senior picture session availability. I strongly encourage 2018 seniors to book with me in late May after school lets out and in the first couple weeks of June. You may also wait until October, but I realize scheduling is tough once back in school. I gave this a lot of thought, and I really do not want to miss opportunities with awesome seniors, but this year, my family needs to come first while little one is so new.
And, also, happy new year! It is a little crazy to think that September of this year will mark Whitney Miller Photography’s 5th anniversary! I am beyond grateful for the families and children I have met over these past few years and have put trust in me to capture some very precious memories. I have some of the greatest family, friends and community to support me as I learn and grow this business, and I look forward to seeing what the next 5+ years bring!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
