I love seeing my repeat clients (like the 2 newborn shoots (below) prior to this shoot, but didn’t get a chance to type anything up about, since I was on a time crunch to get the new site up. Both families I have been photographing the older siblings since before they were 1 (!!), so it’s amazing that I have now gotten to photograph the new babies in their families as well.), but I also love meeting new clients! This super sweet family mentioned during our shoot that they love that I have so many repeat clients and they think it’s so cool that I get to see so many kids grow up. I think so too! It’s one of the best parts about my job :) Hopefully i’ll get to watch Micah grow up as well….and maybe even meet a future sibling one day :) Micah was SO good. Such an easy going baby, although he did try and eat a few rocks, some grass, pull his mom’s earrings, his dad’s ear, etc. Haha. We had a fun little shoot around the park. I hadn’t done a shoot here in about 2 years!

As you all know, I LOVE in home sessions. I have been wanting to do more and more of them. With the heat approaching (ok, well heck, according to yesterday’s 100 degree heat, is HAS arrived! haha), what better place to shoot than INDOORS? Let’s skip the heat, the bugs, the sunburns, crowds…and avoid dragging/packing a bunch of clothes, etc in the car… and shoot in the comfort of your own home. A place where your family finds love and comfort, a place where your kids are happy, themselves, and silly. NO, you don’t have to have a model home. Yes, of course you’ll want to pick up a bit, but no, you don’t need to live in a mansion or dream home! Most people don’t *think* their house is ideal for shoots, but majority of them are wrong! Yes, i’ve been lucky enough to shoot in some amazing homes, but I know there are SO many of you out there that have YOUR OWN perfect little home. After all, every family is different, and your photos should reflect YOUR family and YOUR lives.
for JUNE and JULY (2013) *ONLY*, i’m offering $200 OFF of all *IN HOME* sessions!!! Yep, that’s how bad i’m wanting to do more of them. I don’t just throw out discounts (anyone who has been around Lot116 for the past almost 6 years knows that this is only the second time i’ve EVER offered any type of discount on shoots)….but yes, i’m in love with in home sessions and want to give some folks the extra push to give them a try ;)
Here are some examples of previous in home sessions that I have done (yes, I know, their homes are awesome (again, i’m super lucky to have such rad clients), but DO NOT be discouraged that your home “doesn’t look like that” (heck, mine doesn’t either)…again, this is about YOUR family, your beautiful children jumping around, you kissing their toes, you baking with them, you snuggling and cuddling them, etc. That’s what I love most about in home sessions….they are all unique because everyone’s homes are different. Variety is GOOD! ;) If you want, you can even send me pics (even phone pics are fine – just be sure to take them in the day, with natural light coming in) of your home *before* you book, if you want me to see if your home is ideal for a shoot (just to reassure you) :)

First things first, my blog will be quiet this week….but for good reason (more on that later this week or so). I am sharing one photo from a newborn shoot this past weekend, just because a post is always better with a photo (and because Chloe and Lilah are so darn adorable) ;)
In the meantime, I just wanted to give a quick update on my current booking schedule for 2013. As of now, here is what the remainder of 2013 is looking like for Lot116.
JUNE - A couple of spots open
JULY – A few spots open
AUGUST – A few spots open
SEPTEMBER – A couple of spots open
OCTOBER – COMPLETELY BOOKED
NOVEMBER - COMPLETELY BOOKED
For those wanting “holiday photos”, I highly suggest grabbing a September spot a.s.a.p. I do have clients that shoot in September (and some even in August) for holiday photos, and get them out of the way (which is also great so that it’s not as rushed/stressful along with the holidays).
For June, July, August, I would especially LOVE to do some more in home sessions. NO, you do NOT need to have a “model home”. In home sessions are about YOUR family, YOUR love, YOUR kids being kids, YOUR home, YOUR life. I also have some other ideas that i’ve been wanting to try at some in home sessions, so email me if you want to talk more about it :) I would love to meet your family!
Email me at julie@Lot116.com a.s.a.p to book for 2013 (or even 2014….those bookings have already started as well). Once i’m booked, i’m booked :) I look forward to meeting you (as well as seeing many of you again!)! xoxo – Julie
