SQL Pivot - All Dates

I currently have SQL that creates a pivot based on PERIOD, but excludes dates (INS_DATE) where no data exists.  How can I get it to show all dates whether data exists or not?

WITH BASEQUERY AS(
SELECT INS_DATE, CONVERT(VARCHAR(5),INSERT_PERIOD,108) as PERIOD, BOOKINGS
FROM SUMMARY
WHERE CATEGORY IN('WEB')
)
SELECT * FROM BASEQUERY
pivot (SUM(BOOKINGS) for PERIOD in (
[00:00],[00:30],[01:00],[01:30],[02:00],[02:30],
[03:00],[03:30],[04:00],[04:30],[05:00],[05:30],
[06:00],[06:30],[07:00],[07:30],[08:00],[08:30],
[09:00],[09:30],[10:00],[10:30],[11:00],[11:30],
[12:00],[12:30],[13:00],[13:30],[14:00],[14:30],
[15:00],[15:30],[16:00],[16:30],[17:00],[17:30],
[18:00],[18:30],[19:00],[19:30],[20:00],[20:30],
[21:00],[21:30],[22:00],[22:30],[23:00],[23:30])) AS SUMBOOKINGSPERPERIOD
ORDER BY 1 ASC

What you can do is replace the null values with a string:

WITH BASEQUERY AS(
SELECT INS_DATE, CONVERT(VARCHAR(5),INSERT_PERIOD,108) as PERIOD, ISNULL(BOOKINGS, 'NULL') as BOOKINGS
FROM SUMMARY
WHERE CATEGORY IN('WEB')
)
SELECT * FROM BASEQUERY
pivot (SUM(BOOKINGS) for PERIOD in (
[00:00],[00:30],[01:00],[01:30],[02:00],[02:30],
[03:00],[03:30],[04:00],[04:30],[05:00],[05:30],
[06:00],[06:30],[07:00],[07:30],[08:00],[08:30],
[09:00],[09:30],[10:00],[10:30],[11:00],[11:30],
[12:00],[12:30],[13:00],[13:30],[14:00],[14:30],
[15:00],[15:30],[16:00],[16:30],[17:00],[17:30],
[18:00],[18:30],[19:00],[19:30],[20:00],[20:30],
[21:00],[21:30],[22:00],[22:30],[23:00],[23:30])) AS SUMBOOKINGSPERPERIOD
ORDER BY 1 ASC

Here is an example, as you can see it starts at 2/12/13 since there is no data for 1/1/13-2/11/13.  I need it to show these dates, even if it shows NULL all the way across.

With respect to the dates that are not present is the results:

You need a table of dates first, then left join your data to that.

This table of dates could be a permanent feature or something temporary (e.g. a recursive CTE)

----
posting data: >>"I cannot unfortunately.."

but you could post "sample data" (or "representative data") that is stripped of anything private.

here is an article discussing creation of a date table
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/MS-SQL-Server/A_12267-Date-Fun-Part-One-Build-your-own-SQL-calendar-table-to-perform-complex-date-expressions.html

& here is sample code using a recursive CTE
-- establish a date range
DECLARE @fromdate datetime
      , @todate datetime
SELECT
        @fromdate = '20130901' 
      , @todate   = '20131001'

;WITH
        DateCTE (theDate)
        AS (
                SELECT
                        @fromdate AS theDate
                UNION ALL
                        SELECT
                                DATEADD(DAY, 1, theDate)
                        FROM DateCTE
                        WHERE theDate < dateadd(day,-1,@todate)
                )
SELECT
        *
FROM DateCTE
left join SUMMARY on DateCTE.theDate = SUMMARY.INS_DATE

YZlat, the question as I understand it is about missing rows.
