It’s been a long long time since I posted a Humpdates, but the time has come! So many big announcements, so little blog space.. here we go!

Pricing Guide Update
For those of you who are familiar with my Pricing Guide for photographers, I want to let everyone know that the guide has recently had a major update. I’ve heard from a lot of portrait photographers that they really like the idea of creating a system of pricing that accounted for cost, taxes, and desired profit, but they weren’t sure how to translate that into portrait photography. After doing some research with some of my portrait photographer friends, I’ve come up with some modifications to the process in the guide that can be very helpful for photographers who primarily shoot weddings. If you’re a portrait photographer who needs some help getting your pricing in order, check out my pricing guide, especially the final chapter!

Mind Your Business Workshop
The response to my workshop has been FANTASTIC! I’m so excited to be helping so many of you get your business where it needs to be. I’m working on some great gifts and surprises for the attendees, as well as a few really helpful guest speakers. I also wanted to clarify that this workshop is not designed solely for full time photographers, part time photographers, wedding photographers, or portrait photographers. The workshop is about building a good business no matter what your subject matter is and no matter what your long term business goals are, be it a source of “fun money” on the side or a legitimate lifelong career. If you’re running a photography business of any kind and you’re not making as much money or booking the types of clients you want, this workshop will help you.  I guarantee it!  Seats are EXTREMELY limited so I cannot guarantee how long registration will stay open, get your seat while you still can!

Important December Dates to Remember
December 10 – Thursday Therapy – Happy Hour for all DFW wedding industry professionals at Sambuca in Plano.  If you work in the wedding industry in the DFW area, come join your colleagues for dinner and drinks and lots of networking!
December 11 – Print order deadline.  If you need prints, canvases, digital negatives, or anything else before Christmas, your order must be placed no later than Friday, December 11.  Orders placed after that date requiring holiday delivery will incur a significant rush fee.
December 21-28  – Stacy Reeves Photography is closed for the holidays.  We will be unable to respond to e-mails, phone calls, or fulfill orders during this time.
December 24 – Stacy’s birthday!!

Birthday Celebrations!
Since December is Stacy’s birthday month (and here in Texas we like to do things BIG), we’re planning several events to celebrate the big 2-6.  Come join us at Cru Wine Bar in Plano on Monday, December 14 or at Medieval Times in Dallas on Wednesday, December 16 (or, if you’re a real trooper, at iFratelli’s in Las Colinas on December 24).  For more details, view the Evite here (and don’t forget to RSVP).

Cans for Comments
For the entire month of December, I will donate one canned good (or $1 worth of another item they need badly) to a local food bank for every comment left on this site.  Since I was a little late in announcing it, I’m retroactively counting all the comments in December so far.  If you’d like to help out needy families in the Dallas area, all you have to do is leave a comment on ANY post on my blog.  I look forward to reading all of your thoughts and helping out those in need!  For more information on Cans for Comments and other participating blogs, click here!
