Cheers to a New Year

I think we can all agree that the close out of 2020 is a welcomed thought. But throughout this tumultuous year, I’ve been able to reflect back and found myself more grateful than ever before, and you all are a big part of that. Once photography was able to safely open again, I found myself booked month after month. I was able to laugh with families, meet new babies, and celebrate pregnancies. You all helped keep me grounded in what has been one of our most challenging years as a nation, and for that, I give a most heartfelt thank you! My hope is that 2021 is a stark contrast to 2020, and that all of you have your best year yet!

Speaking of 2021, the best way I could have celebrated this day was by receiving my first vaccine for Covid-19. Thanks to my day-job in healthcare here in Grand Rapids, I was able to roll up my sleeve and make a huge step towards normality. While the vaccine was voluntary, opting for it was an easy choice to keep my family, coworkers, and fellow Michiganders safe. Part of my responsibility in photographing pregnant women, newborns, and families is to help keep them safe. You can rest assured that I will always make every effort to ensure your comfort and safety, and in just a few short weeks, I will be fully vaccinated. For the time being, all current Covid precautions, such as limited family members and masks, will remain in effect.

New for you maternity clients!  I’ve had plenty of mamas-to-be that couldn’t choose between a more casual outdoor maternity shoot, and an indoor fine art maternity session. Now you don’t have to!  Clients now have the option of adding on a 5-image fine art shoot for just an additional $200. Email ellie@photoellieb.com to book your shoots.

Finally, I need testers! I’m looking for 1-2 clients that would like to try out my new photo albums. These will be greatly discounted in exchange for me taking some quick branding photos once they’re in. Please email me for details!

Happy New Year’s, everyone!
