I have a lot of new changes coming in 2009 for Rae of Light Photography. In fact, look who made the front page in the newpaper!
First and foremost, Rae of Light Photography’s pricing did not change! Whew! In fact, my fine art canvas print prices are reduced by 20%. Same outstanding quality, at a better price! One of the new and exciting features that I have been feverishly working on lately is a new shopping cart! Very exciting! 🙂 On my Splash page, there are 3 images, the far left takes you here to the blog, the middle takes you to my website with my portfolios and session information, the far right image labeled “clients” will now take clients to their password protected gallery to place their orders. Additionally, Rae of Light Photography can now accept Visa, Mastercard, and Discover – oh so much eaiser!
My referral program is still in place. Being a small business, I rely heavily on word of mouth. I firmly believe in giving back to those that help me. So with each client you refer to Rae of Light that books a session, you get $20 in print credit.
I have changed the way that I retain my session fees. Instead of putting deposits down and then collecting the remainder of the session the day of your photo shoot, I have decided to have clients pay each session in full. This just makes it easier, and who isn’t for making things easier? Your session fee can be paid by check or once again, I can accept a credit card, and within minutes we can have your session booked. Then all that’s left is having fun on the day of your session.
I have some exciting new and revised Collections! La Luz (The Light) Collection, El Sol (The Sun) Collection, and El Rey (The King) Collection will allow your family to furnish your home with beautiful fine art canvas prints & wall portraits that will be cherished for many years. My new hand made leather bound portrait albums are exclusively offered through these collections. These gorgeous albums showcase your favorite 20 portraits from your photo shoot in either a 4×6 size or a 5×7 size. Also, by purchasing your portraits through a collection you get 20% off the a la carte price!
And by the way, I cant take credit for the fun photo above! A friend of mine, and fellow photographer Andrea Harris in Tennesse turned me on to a fun website called Photofunia. Check it out, it’s addicting.
