I just wanted to stop by and say "HAPPY NEW YEAR!" to everyone! 2014 was one for the record books for Nicole Dalton Photography, and I have set even bigger goals for myself for 2015. It has been hard to keep everything under wraps for the last couple of weeks while I was still in the building process of my new offerings. I am so excited to share the updates with all of you!
I want to encourage you all to look over the website and make note of the updates to NDP for 2015. I have worked very hard to put together collections and sessions to meet every need and budget. I based many of my decisions on what my average client spent in 2014, and the most-often-ordered products. All updated offerings will be found in the drop-down menu under the "Pricing" tab by the end of the weekend.
I am so excited to begin offering in-home lifestyle sessions this year. I will spend up to 2 hours with your family, in your home, photographing you as you do arts & crafts together, as you read storybooks together, snuggled up in your bed, or even as you make mud pies in the back yard, and then put the kiddos into a big bubble bath! These sessions are my favorites. They are natural and un-posed. You just go about your activities, and I tag along and snap away. We can even do a couple of posed shots if you choose, but lifestyle photography is all about capturing your natural, un-coached interactions with one another as a family, doing a fun activity together. Immediately at the conclusion of your session, I will spend up to 30 minutes with you, discussing your plans for displaying my images in your home. I will gladly take measurements of your wall space, and offer suggestions and sample displays of what a gallery of beautiful framed prints, enchanting canvases, or breathtaking print wraps and standouts may look like. I even offer print collections if you already have frames and are just looking to update your display. 2-4 weeks after your session is completed, I will contact you to schedule a consultation in which you'll view your proof images online, and decide exactly what products and images you'd like to order. Deep discounts are offered on product collections that were built specifically with these in-home lifestyle sessions in mind. I will then personally deliver your order to you once all of your purchased products arrive, and I'll even help you with hanging and arranging at delivery if you wish. :) You'll be hearing me talk a lot about these sessions this year, as I did a couple in 2014 and they truly turned out to be my favorites!
I have updated my ONE-der Year - The Milestones Sessions, so be sure to take a look at that offering. It now includes a "cake smash" session at the 12 month sitting, as well as a canvas collection wall display, and a couple of other updates. I also added a Born Yesterday offering for moms who would like for me to come to the hospital and photograph their new bundle of joy. This is a lifestyle session for babies who are typically 24-4 8 hours old, and can be done as a "homecoming" session instead of at the hospital if you choose. This is a super way to preserve the memories of grandparents and siblings meeting the newest addition for the first time, or the extended family that will greet you upon your arrival home. It's also a perfect session for parents who like to bring baby home with no crowds or fanfare, to nap together, to relax in the family room, or settle into the rocking chair in the nursery. So many sweet images await capturing in baby's first 24-48 hours in this world!
I'm currently scheduling all types of sessions through June 2015. If you are planning to have a session with me in the first 5 months of this year, I can schedule you at your convenience. The sooner you are on my calendar, the better chance you have of securing your desired spot. I am already completely booked for January with the exception of 2 Valentine's Mini Sessions that haven't been claimed yet. If you are interested in reserving one of the two remaining slots on January 17, let me know.
I wish you all the best as we kick off 2015! I can't wait to work with you, whether you are a brand new client, or a current client. Contact me TODAY to discuss all that I offer. I know you will appreciate the great quality you will discover with NDP.
