…which is why we’re talking about it in April! As a luxury family photographer here in Cincinnati, I plan ahead to provide the best possible service for my clients. My autumn calendar typically fills up extremely quickly (in 2021, it filled in an hour, and in 2022 it filled in a weekend), so here is everything you need to know to get on my calendar and have a gorgeous session that makes images you’ll treasure for a lifetime. This list of frequently asked questions covers when, where, and how to schedule and reserve your spot with Little Bug Photo + Film!
For my membership clients, scheduling opens via email on May 16 at 8 pm. For non-membership clients, I will send out an email to my email list at 9 am on May 21 with the link to book.
Membership clients are those who have worked with me previously and opted into my annual portrait membership, Memory Keepers. You can read more about the membership here, and invitations will go out to 2023 clients in November.
I will be releasing about 25 session spots for families. These will include a mix of full and petite sessions, with both weeknight and weekend availability. My membership clients will get about 15 of these spots, with approximately ten being left for clients on my email list.
You can read about the investment and benefits of each session type here.
I am adding some gorgeous new dresses for autumn 2023! These dresses add so much beauty to images, and they are available exclusively for my full session clients (Memory Keepers are able to access the client closet for all their sessions).
Fall is the busiest time of year, so it is my least flexible. I will be sharing my fall availability a week or so before my calendar releases, so families are able to plan ahead. I recommend selecting a first, second, and third choice date, in case the dates you are hoping for are already booked. I do not have enough weekend availability to accommodate all clients, so many fall sessions are weeknights. I schedule all sessions approximately 75-90 minutes before sunset.
I do leave enough availability on my calendar to reschedule for rain, contagious illness, or emergencies. However, I am unable to accommodate reschedules for sports or activities or overcast skies.
When you reserve your date, you will sign a contract, complete a questionnaire, and pay a $400 session fee. After your session, you will see a slideshow of your images, and purchase a package of digital images and print credit.
You can submit an inquiry here, and let me know you’d like to be added to the list. I can’t wait to welcome your family in front of my camera this year!
