add some flair to your client welcome packets

Today we have a creative way to combine products to take your clients' experience to the next level. Heidi of Heidi Peters Photography shares, "I was thrilled to update my Client Welcome Packet using a combination of Design Aglow's templates to help educate my clients about the portrait process - from beginning to end. I have found that providing specific, detailed information to the client before the session is so important! The style guide from the Portrait Studio Welcome Packet provides plenty of text plus images which I added to the Style Guide. Printed as a 4.5 x 5 accordion, it's small enough to fit into a client's handbag and serve as a visual aide when shopping.

The Studio Policies/What to Expect card sets the stage for a smooth session while not being overly aggressive. I was delighted to see extra copyright guidelines included as well. The final large piece in the packet is a 4 x 5.5 accordion featuring wall galleries, canvases and prints. I added wall gallery images from the Inspire Guide to the existing text from the Portrait Studio Welcome Packet. Because I use the Inspire Guide 4 during viewing sessions, these previews give a seamless experience to the client. The packet also includes a session date reminder,  5 referral bonus referral cards, and an elegant sticker for the front of the packet. Everything is printed on linen cardstock using WHCC, except the sticker. To keep the folder size at 5 3/4 x 8 3/4 and the envelope size at 6 x 9, I decided not to print a 8 1/2 x 11 welcome letter. I can easily add a handwritten note on a 5x7 card if desired to give it that extra-friendly touch. Overall, the packet is exactly what me and my clients needed - I can't wait to get these out!"

Thank you for sharing Heidi!

The iPhone camera is an incredibly powerful tool. After learning a few basics, you can start practicing your own skills with what I like to call a “creative exercise régime.” First of all, l always hold my phone horizontally with two hands. I form a "C" with my left thumb and forefinger and tuck the phone into it so it rests on my hand with my middle finger holding it up along the back. Then with my right hand I form a similar backwards C with the phone against the palm of my hand and use my right thumb to take the picture. By having a steady hold on the phone, I eliminate shake. The result is a sharper image.

This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
