Some of you may have heard already, we are expecting a new baby approximately January 20, 2012! Words can’t explain how excited we are to welcome another baby Stremel to the world and we are so blessed. I’m 15 weeks along and everything is going great!
Family and God are the two most important things in my life and so this wonderful new addition to our family is going to bring about a lot of change. (As all children do.) I know these changes for our family and Stremel Photography will be for the best. First, I will be taking a pregnancy and maternity leave. I will be accepting limited bookings during the month of November so that I can have everyone’s orders completed by mid December and will begin accepting new portrait clients in April, 2012. During my maternity leave, I will be available to help and work with my current and returning clients on a case-by-case basis. I’ll post this information on my blog again as these dates get closer.
Over the last 12 months I have had the honor and privilege of photographing many beautiful weddings. Now I love shooting weddings. I love everything about wedding photography, but for the 2012 season forward I will be strictly limiting the number of wedding bookings I can accept. Wedding photography takes an extraordinary amount of time, well more than the 9-14 hours of work done on the day of the wedding. I feel it is necessary to limit how many wedding bookings I accept. That way I will be able to dedicate my attention 100% to giving every one of my clients the most photography possible, and still be able to put my family first and be the best wife and mother I can.
With this change, I will also be focusing more on family portrait photography. Fewer wedding clients will mean much more time and opportunity to photograph babies, children, beautiful mothers-to-be, families, couples, seniors, pets and friends. I’ve had to the opportunity to work with some amazing clients and families over the last year and a half and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
Thank you to everyone who follows my blog, and all my the fabulous seniors, families and couples I have had the privilege of working with. I’m excited to share this news with you and I’m looking forward to introducing you to the new Mr. or Miss Stremel in a few months!
