I don’t know about you, but this time of year is traditionally when I officially lose it. I don’t what it is about December but suddenly all my former clients and people previously sitting on the fence about booking a shoot decide that they MUST have those photos done now, no yesterday! And I invariably find my previously empty December turning into back-to-back shoots, all night editing sessions, and my poor son pretty much being adopted by the babysitter. Sounds like a good problem to have but sometimes it’s nice to strive for some kind of work/life balance, and actually see your loved ones occasionally.
If this scenario is ringing any festive bells for you then according to photographer Katelyn James it might be time to consider raising your prices in 2022.
