Why you should think about Christmas now: Fairport Photographers

I know, it's 90 degrees out. And yes, I know, I'm not ready for summer to end yet either.

So, you're wondering: What the heck, Erin? Why on Earth are you bringing up Christmas in September??

Well - for us, Christmas isn't that far away. We want you to think about Christmas now, but not for the reasons you'd think. Currently, we're photographing all of our weddings, and all of our family sessions, while it's still WARM out. If you think you want Fall portraits for your Christmas cards, now's the time to get your session on the calendar!

We don't want you to wait until the middle of October to consider a session. By that time, we don't know what the weather will bring us. I mean, really, this is Upstate New York after all. It could very well snow (I know, it's a dirty word) next week for all we know.

Secondly, ordering deadlines for all of our custom products come waaayyy sooner than December 24th. Some of our products take longer to produce. So by us photographing your session sooner, there's more time for that album or storyboard to arrive, and then get wrapped and under the tree in time.

So yes, it's sunny and warm still, but a little pre-planning never hurts when it comes to our job, and your family.

But hey, if you really like snow and cold, we'll photograph that too - as long as you have the hot chocolate ready!

Until next time,
