BIG changes being made to ForestHaus.
sorry, to those of you who read this for my candid/real honest stories about my fam.
this blog post is all business.  :)
as of may 31st, next monday, some big changes will be made to FHP.
BIG changes.
for those of you already on my schedule for summer/fall 2010, whether for a wedding or family shoot, of COURSE, i will still honor my current pricing & you will still receive your CD of 30-40 of your best images.

IF you book between now & well, next monday, the 31st, you can still receive my current offering as well.
all of this will be updated shortly, on my CURRENT website,

but also on the NEW website being designed for me as we speak!
(can't wait to share it!)
but until then. . .here's the scoop. . .

my session fee will STILL be $175.
however, i'll be selling prints exclusively instead of offering digital files.
all print orders from 4X6 prints to 30X45" canvas prints (that's huge,) & photo albums,
can be ordered through me.

because many of you have suggested AND requested more guidance & consulting through the ordering process, i decided to include that in my services!

not to mention, providing better, more PERSONAL customer service is SO important to me & i TRULY want to know & will make sure, that you're getting THE BEST & most beautiful product you can get.  :)

a few other little changes to note. . .
i will require a 50% non-refundable deposit to reserve your day.
if you or your babies get sick, something comes up, we'll just reschedule.  no worries.
but a 50% deposit will be required in order to schedule a session, by check or cash (& soon, credit.)

a little more on the ordering process. . .
following our session, i'll have an online gallery available for you to preview your best session photos.
THEN, we'll schedule a time, for you to come to my home, or yours, whatever is more conveninet, to sit down & AGAIN, view your images & work together to place an order based on your needs, what you'd like to use for home decor, framing, canvas, etc.

one thing i'll require prior to our session, are wall measurements in your home, where you're looking to place photos of your little babes, your family, whatever it is the focus of our shoot was.  that will also help me work to get the best photos possible for your wall space. . .based on your personal style, space & wishes for the moments you want captured at this point in your life.:)

this new 're-do' of foresthaus may send you packing.  
and i'll understand.  :)
but again, i really want to IMPROVE my level of customer service, give more & give better!:)  
at this point, i need to know that YOU & your family, are getting the best but also that WHAT you have & display for years to come, are the best representation of ForestHaus & YOUR life.
i've thought long & hard about this for many months.
i truly LOVE all of my clients. 
and the thought of losing ANY of you has kept me from doing this sooner.
but i've now gotten to the point, 3 years into the biz, 
where my time away from my family & the future success of ForestHaus, needs to be 'stepped up' a little.:)

so, to sum up, more consulting & more guidance from me (whether through print ordering, planning outfits or choosing the BEST location for your pictures,) 
so you get the most real, genuine & most beautiful images possible.

PLEASE, PLEASE don't hesitate to contact me with questions & concerns.
i really can't thank you all enough for your continuous support, business & inviting me with open arms into your homes, your lives.
i've completely fallen in love with your children & LOVE what i do because of you.
i hope to see you all back soon!!!
