Note: As of Fall 2015, I am taking new clients and booking repeat clients, but on a relatively limited schedule. If you’re interested in booking, get in touch asap at firstname.lastname@example.org. 🙂
It has taken me nearly a full year, but last week, I came to the realization that I can’t do it all. As of November 1 2014, I will no longer be booking new clients, and existing client sessions will be booked only on a case-by-case basis in the future. Folks who have current contracts with me for upcoming sessions and events; not to worry! We are still very much “on”, and I can’t wait to see you!
I did a lot of soul-searching about this decision, and thinking about my choice brings me a lot of inner peace. I am simply too busy with my full-time job, and consequently I have no time for hobbies and personal projects that I would like to develop. Most importantly, my weekends with my family are way too short already, for me to be spending time working a second (albeit fun) job. Jenny Hooks Photography is indeed my baby, but my other babies and my sweet husband have to come first.
This is not a goodbye to photography, nor is it a goodbye to my sturdy little LLC. It is just an “until later”, and this page certainly isn’t going anywhere. I’ll still be very much behind the camera, doing it for the love of the craft, and I definitely look forward to having the time to photograph my family again; that was my first love in the field.
Thank you all so much for your support over the last five years.
