Q: When is Busy Season for a photographer?
For most Photogs, the craziest time (aka Busy Season) is the Fall. October-December is literally a marathon.
Q: What is Busy Season?
The weather is cooler, landscapes are prettiest and the Holidays are fast approaching. Lots of families take their yearly family portraits for gifts and Holiday cards too. So typically, our appts tend to explode during this part of the year. My appointments almost triple in October & November.
Q: How does Busy Season effect Clients?
Well, unfortunately sometimes turnaround times can extend a bit. We take on extra appointments to accommodate clients at our own expense. It takes more time away from family & personal duties. BUT…. I LOVE MY JOB! That's why I do it. I try my very best to get evryone on the books that want to be on the books. Just know that by mid November I’m a zombie lol.
Q: What My Clients need to know
- Small business means Small Business. Its just Myself & a part time assistant. Photographers aren’t amazon, our services aren't instant. Sometimes our art or communication may take a little extra time
- I’m incredibly understanding if/when we have human moments or hiccups. So please, I ask you to please treat me the same.
- I only have a finite amount of appts and once those are filled I will not be able to open more. So book early!
Q: What do I mostly shoot in Busy Season
In October, I shoot Fall (In Studio & Outdoors) and Halloween. In November, I shoot alllll Christmas & Holiday sessions. In studio & Tree Farm. Throughout the busy season I also shoot Fall Family sessions and lots of Fall senior sessions! The main thing I shoot in December is Santa! Then sprinkle in my normal Newborn & Milestone sessions and thats Busy Season!
