September for Photographers is like April for Accountants or December for Santa's Elves
September is a crazy month for photographers. Many are still doing weddings, or are working on product fulfillment from the summer and spring nuptials. Everyone wants family photos with the beautiful colours of the season and kids are back in school meaning many photographers are busy with school pictures! Throughout all the seasonal traditions, photographers are also already thinking about the winter holidays and how to manage the Holiday card orders.
Last year, I feel like I took on too much in September, and I was working on Holiday cards and Christmas gifts right up to the last minute with 80 hour work weeks (between the two jobs that is). So this year, I am trying to set some boundaries!
It is incredibly difficult to turn down work, especially when the leaves and the harvest light is so beautiful! I do have to make sure things are more manageable this year though. So...
I am on a bit of a break from editing until I can get through the September shoots. Partially because of the workload, and partially because the break has been imposed on my by a sinus infection. I will get back to fulfilling orders in 2 weeks. Apologies for the delay, and thank you for your understanding!
Also, I did a big website update. Take a browse. I am eager to hear what you think!
It is beautiful outside! Go enjoy it!
