There are a couple of changes coming with fresh photography by melissa.
One of my favourite parts of owning this business, is getting to know new people, watching families grow and creating connections and relationships with each one of you. I started this business with the name ‘Fresh photography by melissa’, about 4 years ago. It was a part time gig/hobby, not fully understanding what this business would fully become. Here I am now 4 years later, doing this career full time, and feeling utterly blessed. Its all because of you and your support, and I would first like to thank you. The change comes with a lot of thought and I have decided changing the name to my name best suits my brand. My name, “Melissa Hopfner” will now be the new “fresh photography by melissa”. So, when you see tags or links or the Facebook name change, do not be alarmed. 🙂
Family sessions will no longer be done all year around. Family sessions will now only be scheduled between June -August. Then once again in October & November for fall style sessions. With the change of dates, I wanted to give you guys a bit of a heads up and the opportunity to book in advance to avoid disappointment. Sessions will take place on weekends only, which means space is very limited. I will also need to keep a couple weekends open for reschedule dates for bad weather. Good old BC right!?
If you have any questions in regards to family sessions, or would like to book early to secure a date, please feel free to contact me directly.
Newborn MINI Sessions
This last announcement is an exciting one. You may have seen the promo on Facebook or the Cover image but I figured I would post it here also. I had a lot of requests for newborn mini sessions, and was on the fence about it for a long time. Then I started to feel bad, having to turn people away. I decided I would start offering them for a limited time and see how it goes. These sessions are perfect for parents on a budget (who isn’t on a budget these days right?) and for the second, third babies etc. This gives parents the opportunity to have professional images without the big package. Great for announcement cards and a few prints.
Ill list a quick rundown of what mini sessions do and don’t include below.
Mini sessions will be an hour and a half long. This is if baby is awake or sleeping.
All images will be baby wrapped up.
At the end of the session, IF time allows I will unwrap baby for some natural style shots. Awake or sleeping.
Mini sessions do not include sibling or parent shots.
Images will be digitally delivered within two weeks.
Sessions are $200 for 12-15 images.
Mini sessions take place on mondays or fridays only.
All newborn sessions are done at my studio in Sardis.
Please feel free to contact me directly with any further questions you may have.
