Changes coming to JP

Photography_Office_Hours Introducing Office Hours! So, you'd think this would have been implemented a long time ago - WHAT am I doing all day? Well, in reality I would wake up with Luke at 7am, cuddle with various animals until about 8:30 (ok... who are we kidding... 9am!), then stroll out of bed and really only start work at 11am. Now before you go off thinking I am a lazy bum, let me tell you this: I don't stop working until I fall asleep. What does that mean? If you send an inquiry or a client sends an e-mail my way at 9pm, 10pm or even 12am, I will feel compelled to stop whatever it is I am doing, run to the computer and respond. This is not only insane but also highly bothersome to the people around me. I have been known to make Luke pause a movie for "2 minutes tops!!!" only to return half an hour later because I just HAD to answer an e-mail. This is crazy! I never expected other people to respond to me right away so why was I? So, starting today, these will be my Office Hours. Please know that you're more than welcome to still contact me at all times of the day, but if you don't get a response back immediately, it's because I "went home"!

Monday: 9am-3pm

Tuesday: 9am-5pm

Wednesday: 9am-3pm

Thursday: 9am-3pm

Friday: 9am-3pm

Saturday + Sunday: OFF!

Obviously during the wedding seasons, Saturdays (and sometimes Sundays) will be spent photographing weddings but if there is no wedding scheduled, I am taking the weekend off to spend it with family + friends. That brings me to the next change...


Engagement Sessions will be photographed on Tuesdays or Fridays only. Thanks to summer's extended sunshine hours, it’s totally possible to accommodate work schedules + still have a full engagement session. I previously allowed these sessions to be on Sunday but I increasingly realized how much precious family time I lost out on due to this. For sessions happening during late Fall or Winter (brrr) please contact me.

***Sessions do not have to occur during Office Hours. Sessions typically start 2-1.5 hours before Sunset.
