Changes to the Biz!

A few weeks ago, I sat down and revised my business plan for 2013.  This year, there are a few changes, but they're minor....  Don't panic! :)  These changes will be implemented beginning January 1, 2013.

Here's what's new for the new year:

~Due to being stood up on multiple occassions, (even after confirming sessions), there will be a NON-refundable deposit when you book your session(s).  This will be taken from the total of your session, so it's not an additional cost.  The remainder of your balance will be paid on the day of the session.

~Prices are going up slightly on a few of my Sessions. 
Family Sessions: $200
Senior Sessions: $350
Weddings: $1,500

~Large family group prices will be determined by the number of family members in the photos. Large family groups will not be considered for my regular Family Session price.

~Mini Sessions are scheduled for specific days only.  If you cannot make it to a mini, I will not schedule you on a different day for a mini.....UNLESS there is a family emergency or event that otherwise is considered an 'emergency'.  No, Razorback games are not emergencies;)  lol

~All Mini Sessions will be $50, EXCEPT my Halloween Sessions.  Halloween Minis are $25 per child. $5 extra for each additional child if you have multiple children.

~Sessions are specific.  Meaning, if you book me for a Kids Session, ($150), but you and your husband want to jump in for a few, the cost goes up to a Family Session price, ($200).  If you book a Newborn Session, ($200), but want to have some done with your other children as well, the cost goes up by $25 per additional child.  (Parents are automatically included in my Newborn Sessions).

~I will be booking Saturdays.  When Saturday's are full, I will move on to Sundays.  I am trying to keep Sunday's for family time.  However, during my busy seasons, I will fill both days.

~THIS ONE IS IMPORTANT!!  Payment is due at the time of your session.  I WILL NOT hold your check until payday.  If you do not have sufficient funds, please cancel/reschedule your appt. so I can make your time slot available for paying customers. 

~I will be getting 'Square'!!  So, beginning in January, I will be able to take debit and credit cards!  Yay!

~Tax must be paid on each session.  If your session cost is $150, there will be tax added.  Mileage is also added.  I will be more disciplined to charge tax in the coming year.  I have to pay it monthly, so it's a necessary 'evil'.

There will be more changes coming down the line, but these are primarily it.  See?  Nothing major! :)

Tia Wind Photography

Welcome to my blog! I'm so glad you stopped by! I try to blog daily, but I'm sure I'll fall off the wagon eventually:) So, here's a little about me.....

I'm a wife, mother, sister and friend. I take my camera EVERYWHERE I go. Creating images that make my customers happy is my one and only goal! I love, love, LOVE getting behind the camera and do so every chance I get! I'm located in the Benton/Bryant/Central Arkansas area.

I'm an on location natural light photographer, which means I come to you and I use whatever light is available. I don't lug around heavy lights and equipment. And the best part about that is the fact that I don't have any overhead! Which means I can offer YOU great pictures at amazing prices!

Enjoy cruising through my blog:) Call me for details on my sessions and investment. I look forward to building my list of new friends and clients!
