“Help! Calling all national pet photography aide services! One professional pet photographer in Seattle seeking immediate assistance! Mounting emails and voicemails causing quick burial in work! Send help asap!”
Ok, in all seriousness, I had to post this to ask everyone who has called me or emailed me recently to please be patient with me until I can back to you, even if you contacted me like forever ago.
My assistant Christina is still off this month (finishes her yoga school on Friday, yay! But then she needs to move house, sigh….), and although I thought I could handle everything on my own I was SO wrong! Being sick all last week only made matters worse, so I am now VERY behind in getting back to folks. As of last count I have 53 emails to reply to and at least 8 voicemails. (sigh, buries head in sand…)
Please know that if you have emailed or called me I have received your message and will get back to you as soon as I possibly can- my goal is to be caught up within the next two days! I am going through the list in order of the date of contact, and/or if there is an immediate deadline as in for a gift.
Also, if you are going to or already have contacted me about scheduling a shoot this summer have no fear, I still have many openings left-including weekends- I haven’t even had a chance to start booking people! BUT, having said that, don’t wait too long, now that the weather is getting nice in Seattle I am getting flooded with requests so I expect to book up quickly once I start scheduling folks. At least for weekend dates which are always popular. I expect to be in town for every weekend through the middle of September, at which point I think I’m going to need a vacation, ha.
If you are a client who I worked with in April and have contacted me about booking your studio shoot, I have some updates on that and will get back to you this week!
If you have contacted me about workshops, as far as I have had time to look, I’m not full yet for the September workshop but may very well be with all of the folks who have contacted me up until this afternoon. I will be contacting the ‘on the radar’ folks today, as well as the new folks who contacted me.
If you have contacted me about the October workshop, I still have at least 10 spaces left. I have yet to set the date but will this week!
Christina is coming in for about 2 hours tonight to help out, so hopefully between she and I we can make some good progress.
Thank you for being so patient!! I promise that next time my assistant takes time off I will have backup, lol!
Hope everyone is having a great week. 🙂
