the New Studio Update...

...with a progress picture, finally. The New CLICKphotographic Jenison Studio is coming soon...

Things are coming along and we're still shootin for the Fall'09 opening. I can't wait til it's done, it's seems like it's taking FOREVER, (although spending a year and a half jumping through hoops for zoning, variances, permits, code requirements and other assorted challenges didn't help the timeline) let's just say it's been a trying experience.

Other news: Still booking sessions like crazy!!! We were thinking of doing more marketing in July but the way it's going so far this year I may actually scale back marketing for next year.

I'm MEGA excited about this years senior clients. All of the seniors who have booked with us so far this year are saying the same thing "We checked out everyone and was our #1 choice" They love our style and creativity. They love the fact we don't play all the marketing hype games or have hidden fees. They love the great pricing, the fact that it's all listed right online and how we don't pressure clients into spending more than they want to.

Seriously, we have the ABSOLUTE BEST CLIENTS in the area!!! They love what we do and appreciate our work, what more could I ask for. I kind of feel guilty getting ALL of the great clients and leaving the rest for other photographers...not really.

This year is gonna ROCK!

If you haven't checked out our Frequently Asked Questions yet, click here to take a peek. It's packed full of answers to common questions we get everyday. If you have a question that's not in our FAQs send it to us...we wanna know what you wanna know!

Who's in the lead for top 5 school senior session bookings now?
1. Lowell
2. Hudsonville
3. Jenison
4. Grandville
5. Allendale

Where are all my Jenison peeps? Grandville!, what are you waiting for? Last year it ended up being Jenison, Grandville, Hudsonville, Lowell & Allendale. We'll see who takes the lead in the top 5 this fall. Who's my favorite? I love em all. It's kind of like my office, I've done work for Haworth, Herman Miller, Steelcase, I have a few furniture pieces from each of them, I really don't do favorites.

That's it for now.

Rock On,

Did You Get Our...

...2010 Senior Brochure?

If you didn't and you would like one just give us a call and we can send you one (although all of the images in it are right on the website, but if you prefer paper that's ok too).

We finally have our "Frequently Asked Questions" section up on the website (I know, it was supposed to be done two years ago!) and it answers a lot of the questions we get. Be sure to check it out since it covers questions about sessions, proofing, ordering and more. Everyone is just LOVIN' the FAQs section!

We're booking sessions like mad! I think I've booked more sessions in the past two weeks than I did in May, June & July combined last year! If you haven't booked your session don't worry just yet, we're at about 30% capacity so there's still room on the schedule for you. The earlier you book the better the deal so don't wait too long! The only thing we need to hold your session date is just the session fee.

Jenison Studio Update: Framing has started on the 26' x 40' addition, it's exciting to see some actual progress! We're shooting for a Fall '09 opening. I'll post some pictures once it looks a little nicer :)

btw, we started working on the wedding website but so far all we have is the Galleries. I guess it's better than nothing. I hope to have more info posted soon for weddings.

I also need to get a crackin' on the website, I don't think I've updated it in at least 2 years. I think I'm going to do a complete facelift on if I can just find some time.

That's it for now.

Rock On
