happy new year | { a personal story} | fairview heights lifestyle photographer

first + foremost, happy 2017! as much as i sincerely enjoyed 2016, i always love a fresh start! my husband and i are expecting our second baby in june, so i’m taking the opportunity to roll out some new policies + procedures with the new year! thank you in advance for your continued love and support- i mean it, i wouldn’t be here without all of you so from the bottom of my heart- hugs + thank you!

as i mentioned, we will be adding a tiny member to our family in june! therefore, in order to enjoy + adjust, i will not be booking any sessions in june or july and will be booking limited sessions in august. i will resume booking full time in september. thank you in advance for understanding. i can hardly wait to share our tiny addition with you!

as of january 1, 2017, i am no longer booking ‘grow with me’ packages for baby’s first year. i truly enjoy watching your sweet babies grow, but as i narrow my focus to family + newborn photography, i must allow adequate time in my schedule to give the appropriate attention to time and detail that both family and newborn photography demand. i look forward to helping you welcome your newborns and to photographing your families at milestones that YOU select!

as many of you know, once your session with kelsi bailey photography is complete, i send out a sneak peek that includes several images and i then allow myself a maximum of two weeks to deliver your full galleries. as of 2017, i am excited  to introduce a new workflow that will allow me to turn your galleries around in less than a week! don’t worry, all images will still be hand edited by kelsi bailey photography, i have just changed my workflow to allow me to maximize my time at the computer! many of the sessions that i photograph, particularly newborns, are time sensitive so i am so excited to announce this to you! however this will eliminate my emailed sneak peeks. instead, i will reveal sneak peeks as i am editing to my instagram gallery (@kelsi.bailey.photography). of course, as always, i will only post images with your signed consent!

i have been so excited to make these changes, so i am thrilled that the time has come! i hope you + your families enjoyed a magical holiday season and that you’re ringing in 2017 with love + lots of snuggles! i look forward to seeing all of you again this year. photographing all of you is my dream come true so cheers to you + to 2017!
