You guessed right if you guessed that it’s my 6 year business anniversary ūüôā¬† Do you know what that means? Yes, sale time!! Starting tomorrow at 9am on my store site please note that sale prices won’t be listed till tomorrow morning¬† ( click here to visit store ) but that also means changes (or re-enforcing changes). I am changing my Watch Me Grow pkgs… my biggest (and best selling pkg) will be changing at the first of the year so this will be the last time to get The Whole Pie pkg on sale the way it is… I am changing this pkg to no longer include a complimentary maternity session and the sessions included will be newborn, 4 months, 8 months and 1 year (no cake smash). My Just a Slice pkg will be changing slightly to include newborn, 6 months and 1 year (no cake smash) and my 1/2 pie pkg will no longer be available. So yes that means I am no longer going to be doing cake smash sessions starting in 2018 UNLESS already purchased so if you want a cake smash session or a Watch Me Grow pkg including cake smash session or maternity session please purchase asap!

Also tomorrow is the first day that you can purchase outdoor sessions for next year,¬† remember I am only doing 10 total spring/summer sessions and 10 total fall sessions. I am anticipating the real possibility of selling out of my 2018 outdoor sessions during this sale so if you’d like to get a spot please purchase early… I will NOT be opening more once they are sold out!

Being sick for the last year has been hard… over this year it’s become very clear that I need to spend more time doing the types of sessions that I love and not necessarily just scheduling session after session to fill my calendar. I realize that some of these changes may be hard (both on me and my clients) and that I may lose some clients but I need to do what’s best for me and my health/family while still being able to make a living. I am sure most (if not all) of you know that my passion and heart is in newborn photography and that is where I will focus most of my attention/time so while my openings for newborn sessions are extremely limited I will be able to offer a couple more each month with these changes.

Feel free to message me if you have any questions. (I am currently behind on messages but I will be getting back to everyone tomorrow since I took the daytime off from shooting sessions)

Just a short blog post to¬†remind everyone about¬†the changes that I posted about yesterday… so I will copy and paste that information¬†below and to make sure that you have the link to start buying your sessions and packages on sale.

changes I am implementing ‚Ķ first thing that I already changed (last October) was the amount of Spring/Summer Outdoor sessions and then the amount of Fall Outdoor sessions I am offering‚Ķ during my anniversary sale in October I almost sold out completely of those sessions¬†so what does that mean for my¬†sale tomorrow, unfortunately that means there will only be a couple of each of those (whatever¬†was left from the October sale) so grab early if you want one ūüôā

I am also limiting the amount of Watch Me Grow pkgs I am allowing to be purchased per year and I have decided the best way to do this is to allow a max of TWO pkgs per month based on due date .. if you are interested in purchasing a pkg during the sale you will notice a drop down menu that will allow you to choose your due date month (I do have one pkg that starts at 3 months … that one is based on what month the 3 month session would take place). I hope that makes sense but please feel free to message me on FB or email me (Kathryn@kathrynrenephotography.com) if you have questions.

Finally I am increasing the amount of openings for newborn sessions per month… but only by a couple! My usual month consists of approx. 7 newborn sessions and I am going to increase to allow up to 10 newborn sessions per month (YAY)   I will have newborn sessions listed with due date month (same as the Watch Me Grow pkgs) if you are interested in purchasing a newborn session you will see a drop down menu under that listing in my store site and be able to choose the month you’re due. As of right now I am completely booked for March and May newborns so those are the only months I will not be adding more sessions. Newborn mini sessions will also have the drop down menu and be limited on how many of those I offer per month based on due date (2 per month max)…. again if you have any questions please feel free to send me a message.

So why a sale? Well why not?¬†I am so happy to finally be feeling better and I would like to book up my calendar¬†to keep me mostly busy ( LOL) and¬†so I know when I can plan doc appts/physical therapy appts and days for rest/relaxing/vacation. All sessions¬†will be 50% off and all Watch Me Grow pkgs are 55% off. ¬†I am hoping these changes will allow me to slow down but also allow me to continue to do what I love the most‚Ķ making for one super happy photographer ūüėȬ†¬† Please don‚Äôt hesitate to purchase a session or pkg because you want to help my schedule stay light‚Ķ I do want to book up full with what I am offering

Ready, Set…. GO BUY¬†¬† ūüôā¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† www.kathrynrenephotography.bigcartel.com/products¬† Sale starts NOW and goes till Sunday March 12th at midnight.

Hi Everyone,

First I want to¬†say THANK-YOU¬†for the all sweet comments/prayers on my blog post yesterday, I was nervous about posting that so much that I basically hit publish and share and then walked away from my computer for the evening, so thank you again for all¬†the love!!! Ok let’s talk about the changes I am implementing … first thing that I already changed (last October) was the amount of Spring/Summer Outdoor sessions and then the amount of Fall Outdoor sessions I am offering… during my anniversary sale in October I almost sold out completely of those sessions¬†so what does that mean for my¬†sale tomorrow, unfortunately that means there will only be a couple of each of those (whatever¬†was left from the October sale) so grab early if you want one ūüôā

I have been contemplating for a couple of weeks if I should write this or if I should just start sharing sneaks again like nothing has been going on…I know this blog title may seem odd considering I was never officially gone but I have been¬†absent¬†from my FB page and actually from life in general for a while now¬†… you see I have been sick for the last 4 months.

What I have…my sickness…no one can catch (not contagious) and I am still shooting 2-3 sessions a week at most and¬†if I had a session with you during the last four months you would never know anything is wrong. When I am going through one of these¬†several-month-long “episodes”¬†I am so very sick that I fight and struggle daily just to get by, the fear and anxiety take over¬†and I start to think it’ll never end or it’ll just get worse… if I am being completely honest what I am going through is scary¬†…what I feel… what I see/how things appear…the motion…¬†the loss of balance…the inability to do simple every day¬†tasks….¬†I don’t sleep, I don’t eat, I don’t move much at all¬†and¬†I cry A LOT….¬†it’s debilitating.¬†No, what I have won’t end my life but it definitely¬†robs me of any and all quality of life.¬†I have decided at this time that I don’t want to¬†state my diagnosis, I don’t want to get messages/comments/emails¬†from other people that have this or something like this (or that they know someone with this) and what they have gone through…I am sorry¬†if that sounds selfish but I don’t want to hear anyone else’s¬†“horror” stories, I just¬†can’t handle that at this time…I have to be¬†calm and positive to continue to get through this episode.

I have been through this before (the first time being in 2010, and a second time in 2013¬†so it does go away¬† (eventually)) this time I finally have a diagnosis and¬†treatment plan (meds/diet and physical therapy) to help me through it (and¬†possibly to stop¬†it from happening again). ¬†I have had several clients/fans message me just to check in and see if I am still working and to ask what’s going on because I have been so quiet on my page and I can’t tell you how wonderful it is that you care enough to reach out and check up on me so I thank you for that and all the well wishes I have received.

Life sometimes throws you a curve ball and I like to think that my situation is¬†a way of telling me that I need to slow down and enjoy my life/family/friends more than I have been, that I have been overworking and putting my own family (my life) on the back burner…so with that being said, even though I am feeling better and better every day, my plan with my photography is to focus more of my availability in my schedule to newborn sessions (as those are the sessions that my heart & soul thrive on) and less to milestone sessions and families (that means I will not only be limiting how many family sessions I offer but I will¬†also be limiting the amount of¬†Watch Me Grow pkgs I allow to be purchased per year). I¬†do¬†have lots of specialist appts and physical therapy appts at this time so even though I will be opening up my schedule to allow more newborn sessions per month those medical appts of mine¬†will limit my availability so I will only be opening up a couple spots per month and cutting way back on all other sessions.

To celebrate the fact that I am finally feeling better and the changes coming to my business I am going to be having an “all better” sale (that you won’t want to miss) starting Thursday March 2nd at 9:30am and the sale will end on¬†Sunday March 12th¬†at midnight…please visit¬†my store site to purchase¬†¬†( www.kathrynrenephotography.bigcartel.com/products ) and remember that the number of non-newborn sessions/watch me grow pkgs available to purchase will be a very¬†LOW number so purchase early if you want to come see me sometime this year (this is likely to be my only sale for sessions this year since I will probably book up/sell out¬†during this one). Side note my store site will be¬†in maintenance mode¬†till the sale starts.

I will be writing another blog post for the sale (to be posted Wednesday evening) that will include more details about the changes and also list my availability for certain sessions/pkgs but for now here are some recent images I have taken
