I am currently in the middle of setting up my in-home studio for a newborn session. As I gather the dozens upon dozens of backdrops, blankets and props and transform my living room into a professional studio, I have decided that this will be the last time my home undergoes such a transformation.
I love photography – there’s no question about that. I used to get a thrill from all types of photography: wedding, engagement, newborn, maternity, etc. (And as any artist out there knows, you need that thrill, that passion, that incredible love for the art in order to produce beautiful work.) Although I still love newborn, maternity and family photography, I have found that over the past year, the thrill and excitement I have when I photograph a wedding or an engagement session far exceeds the thrill that portrait photography offers me.
Effective today, August 7th 2011, I will no longer be accepting any new portrait clients as my services will be limited to strictly wedding and engagement photography.
I am not cancelling any current sessions – all clients with pending portrait sessions will have their session, but I am no longer accepting any new portrait bookings. I will, however, make an exception for any current or future contest winners. As many of you know, I love having elaborate contests on my Facebook Page where the winners often receive elaborate prize packages. I will always offer full portrait services for any contest winners.
Although I am sad that I will no longer be offering portrait services (since it has allowed me to meet and work with so many wonderful people), I am excited that I am able to pursue a future strictly focused on wedding and engagement photography. Thank you so much to all those clients who have made Ten·2·Ten Photography what it is today.
