Big Changes and Happy Anniversary to Me!!

August 24, 2012  •  1 Comment

     What an amazing year of change and growth it's been...a new camera, new editing software, new classes, new podcasts, new techniques and hundreds of new faces young and old (as well as lots of familiar ones too!).   I am so incredibly grateful for all of it and for all of your support that helped make this little dream of mine a reality even bigger that I would have imagined.  

     When I first started out I wanted to make things as simple as possible, and so it made the most sense to just copy the photos I took to CD and give that to the clients.  I also uploaded the files to a photo printing site of your choice while I was copying to CD.   From there my contact with the client ended and we went on our merry ways.  I worried about the printing quality of places like Walmart and CVS where color and clarity were hit or miss at best, and I often wondered what photos the clients liked the most and chose to enlarge.  In the back of my mind I knew that my goal in all of this was a part time job so that I would have more time with my family, not a full time thing that would take away from them, so printing and distributing my own photos was off the table.  A few months ago I stumbled upon a great site called Mpix that is an online photo printing site similar to Shutterfly or Snapfish.  The difference is that Mpix has a professional side, dedicated to professional photographers called Zenfolio.  I recently teamed up with Zenfolio, and I could not be more excited for this venture!  Starting September 1st  I'll be uploading all of your sessions here.  It works very similar to Shutterfly, Snapfish, etc. in that I'll send you a link to your gallery.  You'll be able to see all of your photos displayed beautifully, and you'll be able to order professional quality prints, canvases and photo gifts at very reasonable prices.   I'll be able to see what you're ordering, have a hand in setting prices and even offer coupons and special promotions to my customers.   As of September 1st I'll no longer be offering a complimentary CD of your images with your session, but you will be able to buy it if you choose, or you can also buy individual files to be downloaded to your computer at original resolution.   Going forward, my new website will also be with Zenfolio. It's still a work in progress right now, so please pardon the appearance while I get things going.  

     I'm so excited for this next chapter in my photography journey, and when you see all the beautiful products zenfolio has to offer, I know you will be too.  I can't thank you all enough for your support so far.  Truly, word of mouth advertising is the best there is, and I know a lot of you have been sharing my name with your friends, family and coworkers, and for that I am eternally grateful.   Hope to see you and your families again soon...

 

:)  Betsy
