I have a big announcement to make: I will be wrapping up my photography business for now.
Since my daughter started Kindergarten and I lost my ‘weekend’ midweek with her, the balance of work/life/family just hasn’t been the same. I also had this link pop in my inbox last week and it really resonated with me. Creating and running my own business has been amazing and the flexibility of the work around my family commitments has worked very well. I have had so much fun with all you lovely families over the last 5 years, it’s been brilliant! I am hoping to get a job back in the Pharma industry as a SAS programmer again. In fact, anyone that actively and successfully helps me to get a job will earn a Full Premium photography session from me as a reward!
I have no idea how long it might take to get myself back into the corporate machine, so in the meantime I will continue with the photography, but on a month-by-month basis. One weekend a month, I will set up a doodle schedule with time slots and anyone can sign up for slots based on booking a mini, half or full premium session. These will be the options available:
Mini – 20 min session, including 12 jpegs – 400CHF
Maxi – 40 min session, including 25 jpegs – 800CHF
Mini and Maxi sessions will be back to back with each other and in a location of my choice which will be announced with the doodle sign up sheet. Mini sessions images will be delivered digitally only. Maxi and full sessions will be delivered digitally and also on a custom USB stick.
Full Premium – UP to 2 hours in a location of your choice, includes at least 50 jpegs a coffee table book and canvas – 1600CHF
At the beginning of this year I waited until there was snow for the winter mini sessions, these were at the beginning of Feb, so I will plan to start my monthly sessions from around the same time in 2013. The mini sessions from my 4 Seasons Winter sessions last year came out really well and I would highly recommend getting all snuggly with hats and scarfs and joining me for some sledding or snowball fights.
